I've been placed as urgent management transfer status by my local authority and have seen a property not too far from where I live.
I'm currently in a beautiful flat and beautiful location, but unfortunatley the property is not suitable for me to live in.
The area though not too far from where I am is quite a difference i.e (not very desirable location), not the worse but when you have kids these are things which need to be considered.
The property is a lovely maisonette own entrance, own drive and garden.
However someone lives above, and that frightens me big time! I don't want to sound fussy but my current property has it's own soundproofing issues, and i'd rather live above or have a house.
The property is a lot smaller than my victorian property which means that i will have to get rid of my fairly new wardrobes which i love and possibly my kids wardrobes which are also fairly new.
It will also need a new kitchen which i will have to pay out for so it's going to be a pricey move.
There is some storage space under the stairs, top floor and one of the bedrooms has an open wardrobe, not massive but decent plus a garden shed.
However, my housing have agreed to allow me to wait until my location of choice becomes available but advised that this could be a long wait as a property has to become available in order for them to make me an offer, so i've selected a few areas to increase my chances
Do you think this property is worth the sacrifice or would you hang out in the hope of getting a house or something bigger as my position is a really fortunate case to be allowed the option.
So far there haven't been a lot of properties , and i'm concerned that even if offered a property in my desired location, the standard of property may not be. i.e. high rise. I am allowed to refuse but don't want to be seen as too picky and lose out
oh just to mention my current flat is communal door, communal garden
