Three-Bedroom House For Sale With Body Of Previous Owner In Garden
A three-bedroom home has gone up for sale - with the listing highlighting that the body of its previous owner is buried in the garden.
The end terraced property in Middleton near Leeds, West Yorkshire, is being sold for £125,000 ($170,000), provided the new occupant is OK sharing their outdoor space.
As part of his dying wishes, the former owner has been buried in the garden of the dwelling where he lived his entire life.
Photos on property website Zoopla from seller Manning Stainton show the spacious family home, complete with a large, kitchen, bathroom and living room.
The house also comes complete with its own driveway, solar panels, double glazing and a wood burning stove.
To the rear of the house is a garden, containing a bird bath, outhouse buildings - oh, and the former occupant's remains.
However, anyone looking to do any landscaping might need to contact Leeds City Council, who rent out part of the garden.
While removing the remains would also require an exhumation license granted by the Ministry of Justice.

A description of the property informs potential buyers: "Please be aware this property is being sold by family members as part of a relatives estate.
"It was the deceased's wishes to be buried in the garden as he was born and died in the house. This wish has been carried out and the property will be sold as is."
According to data from Zoopla, the average price for a three-bedroom in Leeds is £227,274, so the potential buyer could scoop up a bargain.
However, some people have understandably been put off by the listing since it was shared on Twitter yesterday (18 January).
One wrote: "F****** hell that is mental," while another added: "What on earth."
Someone else joked: "All in all, I'd be more inclined to grow roses than potatoes."
Not everyone was as disturbed however. Defending the house, one person wrote: "This is weird, but also people have died in every house at some point."
Potential buyers may also feel the same, in the last 30 days the property has had more than 63,000 views on Zoopla's website.
Manning Stainton declined to comment when contacted by LADbible.
