How to Decide To Move Due To Insecurity In Your Neighborhood?

When investing in a new home, you take significant exception at the state of the neighborhood. Safe surroundings make you feel confident that, finally you have found a place where your children can grow up, attend school and you all enjoy life. When you have settled into such a place, moving your family is the furthest thing on your mind. On the flip side, living in an insecure neighborhood puts your life at risk and devalues your home’s value.

You remain unsettled and the sooner you engage a professional moving company, to help you get out of there, the better.

Bad neighborhood red flags

While scouting around for places to settle the following signs will tell you a lot about a neighborhood.

  • Type of businesses in the area
  • Number of homeless people in the streets
  • Empty shops with “to let” signs posted
  • Number of police cars on patrol
  • Poorly maintained roads

In some areas, however, these pointers are less visible. You may never know until the day you move into the city.

The decision to move out

Moving out from a property you have bought or built from scratch is one of the most difficult decisions you will ever make. However, you cannot continue to stay in a place where robberies, muggings, and drug dealings are the order of the door. Something must give. How do you take the bold step?

Break the lease

The idea of breaking a lease is a bold step. However, early termination translates to a breach unless it was the landlord that forced you out. If you move out before the lease expires, the owner will suffer damages. On the contrary, this condition would only apply if the landlord did not rent out the unit again. They must try to re-rent the house. Once that happens, they release you from paying damages.

Record the breaches

To walk away from lease obligations, you should make note of every security violation you have encountered during the stay. In your report, write down the date of occurrence as well as the time. Also, make a summary of the notification you have given to the landlord and whether they acted. Take pictures where you can and keep all evidence that would support your actions. If there were emails sent, print them out.

Sell your house

Selling a good home in a neighborhood whose past safety history is declining is hard. Begin by enhancing its curb appeal; paint the house afresh, trim the trees, the lawn and repair any broken doors or windows. Try and market it with more emphasis on the amenities and features a buyer would love. Focus less on the reputation of the area.

Once the reputation of a neighborhood becomes life-threatening, it is wise to move out. Serve the landlord with a written notice and make plans to leave. If you are on a lease contract, you can break it and still avoid being under obligation for damages. A record of breaches on the property can help solidify your case.
