Electrical transformer close to rear garden wall. Should I buy this property or not?

I have paid initial reservation fees and spent £2000 on survey, searches and solicitors initial fees. Now I have discovered that there is an electrical transformer close to the rear wall of garden of this house. This is semi-detached house and new built. It would cost me £182,000 right now. I would appreciate some advice whether I should go ahead or back off. People say that I will face difficulty in selling this house later on. Thanks.

  • It isn’t my decision, and I am not an expert on EMF’s. But the risks are there with everything in life, you will have some or most of these items in your home… oven, microwave, hairdryer, fluorescent lights, computer, phone, electric razor, electric alarm clock, doorbell, and other electrical items which could cause harm. In the countryside people live near overhead power lines because they would be without electricity otherwise, most country folk don’t bat an eye lid to this. Some people won’t want to expose themselves to sub stations and overhead or nearby electrical power lines, other people won’t even think about it too much. When it comes to selling property there can always be things that put off some buyers, but not all. You could have an EMF test done by a qualified EMF engineer to put your mind at rest.
