'Nightmare' house with tenants who filled its rooms with junk

‘Nightmare’ house that comes with tenants who have filled its rooms with mountains of junk is on offer for £70,000 as an ‘exciting investment opportunity’

  • The two-bed terraced house in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, seems like a bargain
  • But images on its Rightmove listing reveal living nightmare of chest-high clutter
  • Each room appears to be covered with furniture, bags, bedding and containers

A house branded a ‘nightmare’ is being sold as an ‘exciting investment opportunity’ – despite coming with tenants who have filled its rooms with huge piles of junk almost touching the ceiling.

The two-bed terraced house in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, looks at first glance like bargain for an asking price in excess of £70,000 and the chance to recoup cash through rent payments.

However shocking images on its Rightmove listing shows the tenants have piled the so-called ‘spacious’ rooms chest-high with clutter.

The entire living room floor appears to be covered with household items while a sea of bags, bedding and containers engulf the dining room.

The freehold property’s master bedroom has an overflowing chest of drawers and the second bedroom is piled high with drawers and boxes.

Its kitchen has food squeezed next to containers and utensils that litter the counter tops and the bath even has an upside-down Pot Noodle tub on its edge.

House hunters took to social media after being stunned when they stumbled across the listing and questioned estate agent Bettermove’s summary that the house is an ‘exciting investment opportunity’.

One described it as being like ‘buying a personal nightmare’ while others mocked how the listing makes no reference to the ransacked rooms, instead claiming the deal is ‘not to be missed’.

A social media post, jokingly captioned ‘at least they tidied up for the photos’, has gained almost 50 comments from baffled users.

House hunters questioned estate agent Bettermove’s summary that the house is an ‘exciting investment opportunity’ given the sheer amount of junk in the property

One said: ‘So they’re expecting someone to buy it with those tenants still in there. It’s like buying a personal nightmare.’

Another joked: ‘I like the way the description makes not even an oblique mention of the state of it.’

A third added: ‘There could be any number of nasty surprises hiding behind that stuff!’

One user disagreed and said: ‘If they pay on time regularly, it’s unlikely they will move out in a hurry so it could be a fairly consistent rental income.’

A Bettermove employee said: ‘We sell properties to investors so they can be quite run down and need a lot doing to them, so it’s not an usual thing.

‘It’d suit investors that are looking to expand their portfolio.’

They confirmed an unnamed rental management company are responsible for the tenants.
