Getting your children into the right school is important. Check with your estate agent and the school itself that you're in the school catchment area.

Council tax:

You could be paying 500 Pounds more than owner of the property which is a few streets away.
Don't hesitate to write your council if you think that your tax is too high. This is possible only shortly after the purchase.


Check that the services and amneties are adequate: rubbish collection, road mending, sport centers, parks, cinemas, shops and restaurants.


Have a look at the local authority website to find out what are the crime statistics in your area. Talk to local shop keepers to learn more. It's important to feel comfortable when you come home at night after work.

Flat and house Prices:

Check for planned devellopments, investments, new transportations, proximity to hot areas... You may find a good deal.
