Potential tenants may have to share the house in Liverpool, with an unwanted guest after ‘significant paranormal activity’ was claimed by previous inhabitants - with one expert saying it is haunted by a poltergeist from the 1800s.
Situated in Pickwick Street, in Toxteth, potential tenants will need nerves of steel to arrange a viewing of the three-bedroom terraced property, the Liverpool Echo reports.
Social housing group, Plus Dane, who own the property, have confirmed reports of paranormal activity were first made in 2008 by the then residents.
On the market for £91 per week, anyone moving into the property will need to be aware of their potentially paranormal new roommates that they’ll share the house with - which an expert has described as a ‘violent spirit’ that previously lifted a former tenant out of her bed, and shook another house so much that the owner thought it was going to collapse.
Local paranormal expert Tom Slemen says that the ghost, known as the Pickwick Poltergeist, was first reported over 130 years ago.

He said: “There have been stories about a very unusual poltergeist on Pickwick Street that date back to the 1880s at least’ unusual in the fact that it seems to get around - most ghosts stick to haunting one property, but there are a rare few who flit from house to house, often in the same street, and the Pickwick Street Poltergeist is one of those.
“A landlady connected to the letting of Number 69, a Mrs Euphemia Nimlock, was also lifted out of her bed by the same violent spirit and, and another neighbour Ismael Jones (Number 70) was under the impression the house was going to collapse because of the vibrations.”
The listing describes the abode as: “3-bedroom terraced house in a popular location off Park Road, close to the Tesco Superstore. It has two singles and one double bedroom, rear yard, upstairs bathroom and two living rooms.”
But it then adds: “Please note previous tenants have advised us that they have experienced paranormal activity at the property.”
A spokesman for Plus Dane said: “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.
“We don’t get involved directly in instances such as this but we work to help, advise and support tenants if they are experiencing these issues and we take them very seriously. “As part of our approach of being open and honest, we wanted to make anyone interested in this property aware of these past reports.”
