House value affect of living adjacent to a pub

Where can I find expert opinion on the affect living adjacent to a pub can have on a house value? I am preparing a case for a Valuation Tribunal and need to find expert opinion to include within the case: - The VOA have referenced the average house price for our street in 1993. However, our house is adjacent to a noisy pub so any expert opinion I can receive / find on the extent this can reduce a house price would be very useful - We also live 2 metres from a main road, whereas all other houses are set much further back. Any expert opinion on the extent (%) living on a main road can bring down a house price would also be very gratefully received. I will build this expert opinion into my case, along with other points we shall be addressing. Any help gratefully received Thanks DC

  • It´s a tricky one as for some people the noise would not make any difference. I have been in a similar situation - although the property was close to a number of garages, but had the advantage of having a large garden and was recently refurbed. Every prospective buyer had a different opinion about what they liked and didn´t like. We had to drop the asking price a couple of times before finding a buyer. In hindsight, the estate agent we initially used raised our expectations too high. However, if you search for a local RICS surveyor, they will be able to give you a realistic valuation which can be used as a valid reference.

  • Depending on the level of noise and possible anti-social behaviour; houses with saleability issues are often sold at auction, so if you're looking for a valuation you could look through historic auction sales using the EIG database, which is a paid for service. A good local agent will have access and will be able to assist you.
