My gf and I are in the process of buying a flat in Peckham. We had a relative who is a surveyor look at it recently for his opinion.
He advised against buying it and he said his primary reason for doing so is because there is housing association flats next door and that this could make it difficult to sell in the future/neighbours could be difficult.
It’s not something we’d even considered or thought would be a problem. The most we’d noticed was that the communal garden for the HA flats is a bit untidy, but tbh it didn’t bother us.
Is my relative right that HA flats as neighbours would put off future buyers or is he just being a bit of a snob?
