So, I'm thinking of entering this competion. Clearly as much chance of winning as me getting an Olympic gold medal, but I keep reading that these 'amazing' houses have issues. Eg one has been massively flooded and another is so close to the cliff edge that it might be uninsurable and when it falls the owners will have a massive clear up bill. The current one is in Finsbury Park and I've even been sad enough to streetview it. Can't see any obvious issues, so why is it an OMAZE house? Please enlighten me!

Lovely family who lived very near it won the Finsbury Park house!
Nice write-up here
Too good to be true? What it is really like to win a £3m dream home
Companies that offer lottery-like wins – houses, cars and cash prizes – have taken off recently. Is their success connected to the cost-of-living crisis?

I liked reading about the family who won the Finsbury Park house but I did think that the £100k could be a crucial part of the prize to help pay for the running costs of the house.
When I was day dreaming about winning the Cornwall house I did wonder how long I'd keep it as I wouldn't be able to afford to run a second home unless I rented it out a lot. But I was forgetting about the cash prize too.
