A THREE-bed home has gone on sale for a whopping £325,000 – despite hiding a filthy secret.
The house boasts plenty of interesting features including a garden, a patio and even a portrait of Star Wars character Yoda in the living room.
But the pad in Lancing, West Sussex, hides a dirty secret- it's full of rubbish.
Potential buyers will have to wade through piles of clutter, clothes and old appliances if they want to view the terraced property.
Snaps advertising the messy home suggest there wasn’t time for a spring clean before the promotional photoshoot.
A photo shows an untidy living room complete with an unmade sofa and an overflowing waste paper bin.
Elsewhere, nearly every surface in the kitchen and bathroom is covered in clutter, while other rooms are overwhelmed by mounds of clothes, toys and stacks of old board games.
Estate agent Robert Luff & Co said: ''We are delighted to offer to market this end of terrace home, ideally situated in this favoured location with local schools, mainline station, the beach and Lancing village centre all just a short walk away.
''Accommodation offers living room, kitchen, three bedrooms and family bathroom.
''This property offers a good-size plot and would benefit from being modernised to its full potential.
''Other benefits include garage en-bloc and good-size rear garden.''
What are your rights if a seller leaves rubbish or furniture in your new house?
Items left behind by sellers that aren't included in the contracts, such as broken furniture or bags of rubbish, can cost buyers a lot of time and money to get rid of.
Your rights in this situation depend on what was agreed with the seller before completion, and what is included in your contract.
Sometimes a seller might offer to include certain items – such as kitchen appliances or furniture – in the sale.
The details of those items would be included on the fixtures and fittings form – and the seller should remove all other belongings before the sale is completed.
If you arrive at your new home to find items you did not agree to being left behind your first step would be to contact the seller and ask them to remove the items.
If they don't agree, you might have to remove them yourself and try and get the seller to cover the cost, according to Co-op Legal Services.
Some solicitors have started to include "clean and tidy" clauses in contracts would mean that buyers could sue sellers if a property wasn't handed over in a fit state.
It will only handed over to the buyer after it's clear that all of the sellers possessions have been removed from the property.
If the seller refuses to take them away or pay for their removal, buyers would then be able to take them to a small claims court where they could be awarded up to £10,000 compensation.
