Re: Would you buy a property constructed on a Landfill site?

Hi there
I would not touch it, not because I dont believe it would be safe, but because it would be hard to sell.
People buy houses with hearts as much as heads and the idea of land-fill is just bad, look at the sentiments on this thread.
We once had a property with a little bit of land attached, the farmer who owned it before had use one corner to "store" old tractor tires (a small patch of concrete with maybe 20 tires on it). The local authority named it a waste store. We cleared it all out properly but when we sold a number of potential buyers ran away just because of this history.
Buy if you intend to own for ever, else dont
