I'm looking to buy a new house in England. It's not likely to be detached. I like a quiet life and would like to choose one where neighbour noise isn't an issue.
I have read that during the 1980s, the building regulations were quite good on this but they deteriorated in the 1990s and may have improved in 2003
Does anyone have definitive information about "good/bad" years for house construction in this regard?
Alternatively, does anyone know ways of measuring/estimating this when viewing a house?
