I have a mate that just bought his first ever house, in a "nice area" of bristol about 2 years ago. This area now has had influx of the council buying houses and converting them into 1 bedroom flats.

8 months ago he got a lovely wake up call to a group of people (not kids) fighting on the street. These people had just moved in next door to him. Someone called the police, they came and broke up the fight...

That was the start of a down ward spiral. Theres been an increase in criminal damage, his cars been broken into.. these peoples kids from the age of 8+ are out till 1-2am..

Last week his living room window was booted in, with him sitting there watching TV, a Adult!! did that, he ran out side and was faced with 6-7 people shouting abuse at him (he's Gay).

We had a mini house party couple of weeks ago, and someone knocked on the door, one of the girls answered it, and 3 guys barged in.. they got as far as me, till i grabbed one by the thraot and dragged him out.. We then called the police and they did Jack!!

Everytime the police have been called and everytime, they have defused the situation, and drove off.... No arrests...The council doesnt care about these people and put them any where.

I feel some of them are mentally ill... there on the dole, drink every day. And there seems to be no end to the torment!!

I advise getting the hell out before the value of the property crashes out of sight.

When buying any property it has to be a bit of a lottery making sure your in a rising area as opposed to one in decline.

Bummer.

Police everywhere are lazy sods who do nothing until they are forced to. I advise selling up and moving.

The area went from good to terrible over a few weeks, he admitted that if he did sell up, they would have taken about a month in that time the property would probably drop by a tenth to a quater... i suggested sell it to the council on your conditions.. and also see a brief and see if the estate agents lied to him..

Estate agents lie??????????????

Surely not.

If they were aware of the plans for councel to buy properties and do these conversions, and as professionals in the area they would have been directly involved in those council plans he has a good case for taking legal action.

He firstly has to take his complaint to the estate agent that worked for him to seek redress and when that fails go the association of Estate Agents for them to take action on his behalf.

Aww, you want your first house to be really nice as well. Hopefully with the advice you gave him, he'll be able to make a move soonish rather than later. Is he currently looking up any properties or?
