Basically 2 parts of 1 question.
Been looking for flats as I have to be out my place in 10 days and originally planned to stay over summer but LL only just told me that someone is moving in a few days before my contract runs out despite me telling him I wanted to stay over summer.
The area I want to move (back) to is a nice seaside town but I have visited it twice in last 6 weeks and am going back in the morning(though the train journey is almost 3 hours due to changes and waiting) to see a cheap flat that looks great in its pictures but its in a well known very rough area of town(though I didnt know that till I asked a few people)
I was double checking the details of the flat again in google and an article came up that this 18 year old girl was brutally murdered a few houses along from the flat I am about to visit and they left her battered and bloodied corpse outside the house she was murdered which shocks me as its only a few doors down I am getting(may be other side of road or further down as numbering isnt a clear indication)
It has put me off a bit but I am desperate for a flat and it looks like a good flat though the reputation of the area may be why its less than other flats in the area, but then again it may be because its not in town centre area where flats the same size go for an extra £100 odd a month.
Would a (recent) murder put you off living on the street?
