Beware Of Houses For Sale!!

House-hunting couple being shown round run-down home by estate agent left with head and back injuries after plunging 14ft through floor into basement.

The man and woman - who have not been named - were viewing a £90,000, six-bedroom property in Nottingham.

The potential buyers wanted to transform the Grade II listed building, which is described as being 'in need of a full renovation', into their dream home.

But they ended up being taken to hospital with head and back injuries after the ground floor of the end-terrace home gave way and sent them plummeting into the cellar.

The pair were carried out on a stretcher through a window.

'The house is up for sale by auction.

A description of the property reads: 'A unique opportunity to acquire a substantial Grade II listed end of terrace property set within an established convenient location.

'Six bedroom accom­moda­tion of appro­ximately three and a half thousand square feet offered in need of full renovation.'

Promenade is a small row of mostly three-bedroom terraced houses which overlook Victoria Park in Nottingham.

Located towards the North East of the city centre prices on the street vary from £90,000 to £135,000 with an average of £93,000.

“just goes to show you need to be view properties before buying at auction”.
