Stoke-on-Trent £1 houses

16 posts in this topic

More than 600 people are interested in buying rundown homes in Stoke-on-Trent for £1 each, the city council has said.

Thirty-five derelict homes, mainly two-bedroom terraced properties, will initially be sold off in the Cobridge area, with a further 89 to follow.

Under the £3m project, the local authority is offering loans of up to £30,000 to help complete essential repairs on the houses.

Potential buyers have until 12 May to apply for one.

I would not buy the whole of Stoke on Trent if it was on offer for a quid!

I think it's a great idea. I guess they are just currently sat there looking ugly. It's something I would certainly consider if it happened where I live.

Haha, well no, I live in Leeds. But, it says the people must have lived in the area for a number of years, so it's people already living there that will be buying. So they already live in that kind of area so it probably seems like a wonderful idea.

I'm absolutely certainly that Leeds City Council would not do the same kind of thing here I'm sorry to say.
