    Buying opposite to an electric substation

    I am looking at purchasing a property an an investment. It's got land to the side so if in the future I want to I could extend to the side. However it's opposite a small electrical substation, size of a shopping cart, covered by brick. It's small, surround by a large fence. As its on the opposite side of the road so about 40 feet away. However I have started to have second thoughts because there will be some renters who wouldn't be interested ditto when I come to sell it, there will be some buyers who'd never want to buy a house so close. Any thoughts? I didn't think much of it when I first viewed the house but after my offer was accepted this week, I had another look and am now having second thoughts.

    40 feet away won't hurt you, or your tenants.

      I wouldn't worry about it at all.

        If you are worried about that suggest (seriously) you switch off everything in the house, remove all mains wiring, don't use a mobile 'phone, certainly not a microwave oven, never watch television or any computer with a screen: Or go on a train or in a car or 'bus.

        The dangers of looking at this message on your 'phone/laptop/computer are probably higher than from a small transformer 40 ft away.

          The good thing about living opposite a substation is that it will never have loud parties, it wont have more cars than parking spaces, it wont park badly, wont complain that your tenants have done x, y and z etc etc...

          Personally it would be a total non-issue.

            As above, "On the opposite side of the road" and in effect no where near you , not even next to you.

            No contest - - - ignore it.

            100% of all replies on here state "no problem"- Buy it.

            Enjoy your investment.

              Anyone concerned should first remove their tin foil helmet!
