Why you should check neigh­bours

Yorkshire Post - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

OVER 17,000 house sellers will be mov­ing home this year be­cause of prob­lem neigh­bours, ac­cord­ing to re­search by Rightmove.

Rightmove’s Con­sumer Con­fi­dence Sur­vey mea­sured peo­ple’s mo­ti­va­tions for mov­ing over the next 12 months, and among the sta­ple prop­erty mar­ket driv­ers of death, debt and di­vorce, were 2 per cent of peo­ple stat­ing that they were mov­ing out be­cause they “don’t like their neigh­bours”.

Rightmove’s Di­rec­tor Miles Ship­side says: “Home movers carry out lots of re­search be­fore they buy their next home, in­clud­ing what prices are be­ing paid in the street, but the first time they meet and size up their neigh­bours is prob­a­bly af­ter they’ve moved in.”
