As an investor, generally speaking, would you consider buying a house that is right next to a brown, 16 storey council estate built in the sixties?
I am considering buying the relevant house because it is a freehold and is relatively decent. In the area where I wanted to buy, all city centre leasehold flats that I considered buying would give me near 0% or even negative ROI; a freehold will have better yields, but it is almost always near a council estate and at the edge of the city.
I saw some forums online (including mumsnet!) where people are advised to steer clear
