There are numerous houses in Grasmere on unadopted roads. My husband and I are acquiring one such house. What would be the advantages and disadvantages of buying a house on a private road?
Grasmere conveyancing practices will be well versed in transacting propertieson private. Your conveyancing practitioner should investigate Land Registry data to identify any rights or liabilities. It is possible that there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that proprietors make annual contributions for the upkeep of the road. If one exists, the road will likely be maintained and look nicer than council adopted.
