Britain’s messiest house? 2-bed semi on sale for just £50k – but you’ll have to clean up before you move in


THIS two-bedroom semi-detached price is a steal at just £50,000 but the buyer must be ready to do some major clearing up.

The semi-detached house in Birmingham is being auctioned with a guide price of £50,000, significantly lower than most property elsewhere in the country.

However, photos show the home filled with piles of rubbish, and all of the contents – furniture, cardboard boxes, clothing and other items – come with the property in the Birmingham suburb of Quinton.

Prospective buyers aren’t allowed inside and whoever purchases the property will have to get rid of the mess and sink thousands of pounds into a refurbishment, Birmingham Live reports.

The property is the cheapest listed in Birmingham.

But pictures of the interior could put off prospective buyers before it is auctioned on April 3.

Photos show rubbish piled from wall to wall.

An online listing says it is located in a “popular” neighbourhood but is “in need of refurbishment”.

The house has a kitchen area, bathroom and separate toilet, a garage, where more rubbish is piled, a driveway and an enclosed garden.


The listing suggests the home would be perfect for families or commuters.

It is close to two schools and the M5, and has “great” transport links into Birmingham city centre.

But the advert warns that the property will be sold with all of the contents inside.

There will be no internal viewings, it adds, meaning prospective buyers will have to rely on the images and the appearance of the home’s exterior.

The listing reads: “Opportunity to acquire this two bedroom semi-detached property in need of refurbishment.

“The property is located in a popular residential area, close to King Edwards and Five Ways schools, Newman University as well as local amenities being nearby.

“It is also is close to the M5 motorway, a commutable distance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Birmingham University and has great transport links into Birmingham city centre.

“Please note that the property will be sold with contents inside.

“External viewings only for this lot.”

According to Zoopla, the estimated running costs would be £410 a month if the house sells for £50,000.
