Inside one of the cheapest homes in the UK that could be yours for just £15k – but there's a catch | The Sun

THIS terraced house looks to be a sure-fire bargain with a price tag of just £15,000 but there more to it than meets the eye.

Everyone is looking for value for money as the cost of living crisis continues and this property in Greater Manchester which has come onto the market with Rightmove looks to fit the bill.


The two-bed home in Tonge, on the outskirts of Bolton, is currently the cheapest property on the market in the region, where house prices averaged £141,578 over the last year.

However, any potential buyer may have to fork out a lot more on top of the asking price to do it up.

Photos inside the home show its current state and its clear it would need some modernising before any new owner could move in.

However, the property does have a lot going for it with a large amount of living space and it is in a fairly clean state.
