We viewed a house last week that was absolutely spot on, ticked all the boxes and then some. We noticed that it was next to a social club that runs events on the weekend - so not a real city nightclub, more like a place that does wedding receptions, dance classes, 70s nights etc.
The estate agent then confounds our expectations of her profession and let’s us know that the local residents have gone 12 rounds with the club owner over noise and antisocial behaviour ( pounding music, lyrics clearly discernible in your living room, no door policy and a gang of Scallies drinking in the car park). A web search gives all the details - it’s a good area and the council are on top of things, threatened to remove the club license and things are now apparently all sorted. I’ve swung round a couple of times late this weekend and the noise is not an issue.
Anyone faced a similar dilemma? Seen the dream house with that one potentially fatal flaw? Just interested to hear opinions. I guess the consensus may be run, don’t walk, from this property. What is keeping us interested is that the area is good, the council and the police will take antisocial behaviour seriously.
