Young couples seeking their first home could snap up a property in Birmingham for just £50,000… but only if they are prepared to clean it first.

The semi-detached house in Quinton comes complete with two bedrooms, a back garden, a garage and a driveway.

But photos on the property listing website Zoopla also show mounds of rubbish piled-up inside.

One of the rooms includes a pile of objects reaching several feet high

The listing adds the house “will be sold with the contents inside” and there will only be “external viewings for this lot”.

An image of one room, which appears to be of the lounge, shows items such as boxes, chairs and cuddly toys piled up several feet high.

A photo of a separate room shows a broken wardrobe behind a mound of bulging bags of rubbish.
