Abandoned Houses Near Wolverhampton

Recommended Posts

We were on the tram from Birmingham to Wolverhampton today. A few stops out of Wolverhampton there was an area with quite a few apparently abandonded houses. One was burnt out, but a few others looked abandoned and empty.

How would that happen in the current climate. Wouldn't property developers buy them up, do them up, and put them on the market?

There are quite a few like that in Birkenhead, we actually considered buying a couple for £27k each with a rental value of £450 pm, seemed like a good idea but the surveyor wouldn't go to the house in braod daylight due to the pimps and drug dealers :( I guess there are somethings even a new kitchen can't gloss over.

Quite plausible. The houses in question were in a sort of out-of-town location, though transport links should have been good. They were very low density "here and there" houses in an otherwise fairly sparse landscape.

These are the areas the government should be taking over and rebuilding totally to provide new council estates.
