Almost 100,000 homeowners move due to neighbour disputes




As many as 95,200 homeowners over the last two years decided they could no longer remain in their properties because of fights with neighbours, according to a survey.


However, the most common reasons for moving home saw one in three households move to climb up the property ladder and one in five moving because they needed more room, based on a total of 680,000 home owners moving since 2014.


Other popular reasons for moving home included relocating to a new job and moving into a better school catchment area.






Homeowners who are selling their properties are required by law to declare any arguments they have had with their neighbours.
