We are thinking of putting in an offer on a (terraced) house. Previously we have had issues with neighbours (also had some fab ones) and so keen to know that we would not be moving in next door to difficult people.
Obviously we could just ask vendors, but has anyone actually knocked on the neighbours' doors to get a first hand impression?
Yep every time! i wouldn;'t consider not doing so TBH. I viewed a house last weekand knocked on next door, saying I was viewing the house and wondered if they could tell me about the area! They prob think I'm barking but it's better tan moving in next to Mr & Mrs Nutjob
Yes, didn't knock on any doors though but visited the street lots. DH is a chef so also checked out the street at midnight (on his way back from work) on a Friday and Saturday night. We had nothing to worry about, all our neighbours are lovely. Your dream house can pretty quickly turn into a nightmare by crap neighbours.
