Buying a property adjoined to a womens refuge

A semi detached house has come up for sale with a building plot. The property next door is owned by a police force and is used as a woman’s safe house.womens refuge

It is a shame we need them in this day and age, but there we have it. The semi on offer needs a full refurbishment, and at an asking price of £310,000 I cannot afford to under estimate the perceived stigma of selling on a refurbished property with this issue.

Has anyone, experience of this? When the property has been fully refurbed it should fetch around £410000.

What should I offer to purchase it for?

Thank you
Chris

Hi Chris,

As long as the property looked in good condition, which I am sure it is my thought process would be that with all the police presence this would be one of the safest houses you could buy. I am no expert though.

Hi Chris

How much will the refurbishment cost and how long will it take?

I have flats next door to a half-way house owned by the council. We've had them 20 years. Its a nice area. Day and night there are people shouting, car noise, dogs barking, shite and rubbish in garden and street. Council and police do nothing. My advice to you is buy a place in an ok area with ok normal neighbours. Don't give yourself a hard time.
