Selling a house near a pylon?

I have made an offer to a house which is close to a pylon about 100ft away. Will it be difficult for me to sell the house when it comes to that? The pylon is about 100ft away from the front garden, which has a road between the front garden and field where the pylon stands.

  • Did they have problems selling it to you? What type of pylon is it? If its a radio mast or for mobile signals, you can ask the local council to provide documentation of the safety. This can help you sell!

  • Assuming it's an electrical pylon, yes it will make a difference - the property will be more difficult to sell compared to selling a property without a pylon. It really comes down to price... presumably you are buying at a discounted price compared to similar property prices in the area. When you eventual sell the property again, you will most likely have to sell at a discount too, if the Pylon is still there. It's quite common to see properties with "saleability issues" being bought and sold at auction. So it might be worth talking to your local auctioneer to see what they think - they may be able to give you some further advice.
