Flat Built About 5 Years Ago

Recommended Posts

The tag line in adverts are often bizzare; saw a guitar for sale recently " one string missing-hence £66"

and "sounds amazing-never played"

These have been round for a good few years.

"Never been lived in, adds to its appeal"

It would be interesting to phone up the EA to get the number, then check out the LR details, see what that shows. I would, but I don't have a phone and not wasting 8-16p on a mobile call to find out :)

NEVER BEEN LIVED IN means that it has never been snagged, so there will be a lot of problems. Also, anything man made needs to be used or it falls to bits. Use it or lose it. [Obviously abuse is as bad as neglect, I'll bet the boiler hasn't been serviced]

I know all about new build flats having spent the last four years fixing my very own...I hate developers...

Who would want to live in it?

Me. This is exactly the area and type of place I want to rent when I get back to the UK assuming I don't end up in London again.

I can imagine you living here no h(o)p(e)c. Sitting on a 2/3rd size leatherette sofa from Argos, quaffing Tesco Finest plonk and listening to your upstairs, downstairs, port and starboard neighbours have a (please delete as appropriate) dump, pi55, 5hag, fight.

In a flat you've got enough neighbours to hear all that lot at the same time.

Don't forget the teething baby at number 53! Bloke who slams his doors 3 doors down on the floor below. Tap tap tap from all the laminate flooring. Fire doors being left to bang every time somebody comes home/leaves. And the angst ridden teenager playing loud emo music all day/night.

A real sense of community living cheek to jowl with people you'll never meet.

It's intereting that it's suddenly beign rented out. People tend to buy new builds as investments then leave them empty so they'll appeciate and can be sold for more later (I'd bet there are thousands of flats currently sitting empty). Wonder if the buyer has tried to sell and had no takers?

I totally agree with the post above though: a "new-build" that's sat empty and untried for 5 years wouldn't appeal to me at all to buy or rent. If the government ever get their fingers out, this is exactly the kind of thing that shouldn't be allowed. We'll end up building even more on flood plains to address a non-existent "shortage" or property.

I understand now why I'm still part of the renting underclass. I've been too picky all this time :(*

Don't forget that many people prefer to live in flats than houses. Despite what people on this thread have said I think the majority of young people who do not have any immediate intention of starting a family prefer flats to houses. When it comes to renting I would only rent a new build flat because I prefer them by far for the nice new interiors, gyms, etc and you can usually get one with a private parking space which is otherwise difficult in city flats.
