A three-bedroom house has had its rental price reduced thanks to the presence of a disruptive ghost.
The building, which is situated on Pickwick Street in Liverpool, has gained a reputation for being haunted following stories of strange occurrences experienced by previous tenants.
The alleged ghost, which has become known as the Pickwick poltergeist, is said to have been responsible for the haunting of several different properties on the street over the last 100 years.
"There have been stories about a very unusual poltergeist on Pickwick Street that date back to the 1880s," said paranormal expert Tom Slemen. "It's unusual in the fact that it seems to get around – most ghosts stick to haunting one property, but there a rare few who flit from house to house."
In one instance a landlady, Mrs Euphemia Nimlock, had reportedly been lifted out of her bed by an unseen force while the house of her neighbor, Ismael Jones, was shaken by violent vibrations.
Social housing group Plus Dane has confirmed reports of paranormal disturbances at the property and its owners have warned potential tenants about it in its listings online.
"Plus Dane received reports of unusual activity at this property in 2008 and worked with the tenant involved to look at ways in which we could help," they wrote. "As part of our approach of being open and honest, we wanted to make anyone interested in this property aware of these past reports."
Whether anyone will be brave enough to move in to the building however remains to be seen.
