projects such as road construction, traveller sites, housing estate
or other building developments. Remember, if your view is of or
over other people's land, things may change beyond your control.
Check the neighbourhood for warnings signs such as graffiti;
driving around the area at 11:15 PM on a Friday night onwards is
also a good idea. Pop into the local pub and say you are thinking
of buying a property nearby, then ask if there are any problem areas.
Flood Plain / Flood Risk
If you are buying real estate near a river or sea / ocean,
it may be wise to ensure the property is above the flood plain.
Always be aware of the flood risk of any property near a large water
Tsunami & Earthquake Risk
The island of La Palma in the Canary Islands has a large
unstable land mass which could (many say "will") fall
into the Atlantic Ocean and create a mega-tsunami (see
New Scientist article) which will afflict the whole Atlantic
Coast. Therefore properties 30 meters or more above sea level may
be a good idea if you are looking at seafront / oceanfront property
in Somerset, Devon and Cornwall especially.
