who would live in a house LIKE THIS?

Those pictures make me feel itchy

The prices in London are awful! It's a bit of a dump. And clearly lived in

You could buy that whole house done up round here for less than that. grin

And yet one of the tenants is very proud of his shoes.

Part of me feels sad and part of me feels disgust.

Glad to see they tidied up for the photographer.

Lick of paint and a new kitchen and that house would be lovely, though.

The owner and agent should have staged the photos a bit better than that shock.

There was a house on my road last year that had been like a haunted house for a few years. An elderly owner who had let it go to pot. It was seriously grim. New owners have done an amazing job on it, and it is now one of the nicest houses on our street. Some people love finding a house with 'potential'...

Someone who likes nothing more than spotting pictures in the ceiling mould...

With a lot of work, it could be amazing, but the bed in the attic is fucking vile, it looks like someone died on it.

They have a weird tidy shoe fetish. I originally thought students until I saw the kids shoes.

I particularly like the Dyson. Almost an object d'art as it clearly has never been used. An ironic twist

It's not children's shoes SethRogen.

If only they'd put the toilet lid down.

I think it's some poor souls whose landlord doesn't care about their living conditions.

I think their living conditions look okay, but the tenants have no knowledge or interest is basic acceptable living conditions.

In my past life I also rented a very cheap place. Managed to make it clean and look good. It's down to the individual. It's also down to how much the landlord/lady cares.

Looks like an HMO with insufficient space in the kitchen for everyone's stuff. the bathroom is a disgrace - not tiled for a shower. I think it's not on to be sneering at the tenants. I wonder if they even knew the sale photos were being taken?

The mouldy attic rooms appear to be unoccupied. Perhaps the tenants who objected to paying good money for crap conditions have voted with their feet and moved out, prompting the landlord to sell rather than spend money fixing the problems.

Looks pretty squalid. Poor children.

god, the mould on the ceiling by window. shocking.

Poor people with landlords who won't do repairs. My current flat has worse damp than that from blown render leading to water ingress and it has taken over two years of begging to get any repairs.
But hey, pretty disgusting how people have to live in crap conditions, they should pull their socks up and be less poor!
