Liverpool City Council are selling derelict houses for just £1. This might sound fantastic on paper, but these houses haven’t been touched for the best part of 10 years. There’s also a catch – buyers must invest their own cash to renovate them, which is at least £40k and the work has to be completed within 12 months.
This series, filmed over two and a half years, captures the highs and the lows of the people who are gambling their savings to step onto the property ladder and trying to achieve ordinary dreams in extraordinary circumstances.
