Re: High-Voltage Power Lines in Vaud and Buying a House

If you're that worried about EM ditch your mobile phone. That's probably the biggest source in modern life.

For the house, if you can get the price low enough, it could be worth it. It seems to me in Switzerland, you could have a house in a prime location and still find it incredibly difficult to sell.

I'm also curious watt the OP would get charged for the house. She coul ombrace the given advice and let it induct a new seeking strategy; but this would contribute to the static market. Are there advantages of the property as parks in the neighbourhood? This could generate powerful incentives for other buyers in the field, forcee that.

Bad enough?
Outstanding Nathu.

You turned it up to 11 on that one.

I'm still buzzing just from reading it.

So seriously now. You think they're getting a geologist to confirm the tower isn't going to fall down on the house? They must have rocks in their heads

Re: High-Voltage Power Lines in Vaud and Buying a House

Apologies in advance for reviving an old thread, but it seemed pointless to start a new one.

We looked at a house that we loved and the problem was not so much the proximity to the lines but the view of them from the kitchen window in particular.

We did some additional research, contacted the relevant authorities to get a precise measurement, but at the end of the day it comes down to not just whether you can see them but do you hear them clicking/buzzing. This can vary depending on the weather. Mostly what we hear is the birds chirping. Tons of birds sit on the wires.

So then we found another property, no power lines nearby but it says the following in the "grundbuchauszug" (official property deed)

Baurecht für eine Niederspannungs Kabelkabine mit Kabeldurchleitungsrecht zG der AEW Energie AG, bis 13.08.2054


The house is for sale by the owners and an agency. It was the agency that forwarded the document to us. The owners have prepared a very detailed documentation but no mention of this "right".


Is this a house to walk away from?

Just remember all those TV Property programs.

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION !!!

You are having doubts on the house so when you come to resell the house at a later date; you will have potential buyers/viewers with exactly the same thoughts.

I tell you this because when I was 25 years old (more ignorant and no TV property programs!); I bought a large detached house within 80 feet of the mainline railway (Euston - Birmingam West Coast). I actually thought at the time least my neighbour is the railway and certainly won't have bad neigbours.

I actually put this house on the market in 2007 (before financial crash) for £750k. If the property was away from the railway in another part of the village this house would have sold for £1 Million plus.
The noise from the railway is negligible because the railway is on an embankment about 40 feet above the house so the sound waves go over the roof and not hit the house.
However, potential punters either see the house on Google Maps or see the railway and think I don't want to live there.
