The regeneration scheme is being funded by the city council and government and the council say it will give the area a new lease of life.
The programme will revamp empty council-owned properties which have fallen into disrepair.
The city council will initially cover the cost of refurbishing the homes and will sell them for just £1. However, the new owners will have to pay back the cost of the refurbishment over a set period of time.
It is the first phase in a £3 million project which will see 124 long term empty homes in Portland Street and Bond Street areas brought back into use.
Councillor Janine Bridges, cabinet member for housing, neighbourhoods and community safety, said:
The £1 house scheme has received worldwide media attention and has really put Stoke-on-Trent on the map as an innovative city that isn’t afraid to take on a challenge.
However, this exciting opportunity is exclusively available to residents of Stoke-on-Trent and I would urge people who meet the eligibility criteria and want to get a foot on the property ladder to apply before the deadline on Monday.
“This major regeneration scheme will not only transform the appearance of the Portland Street area, it will also transform the lives both of new and existing residents. It is a once in a lifetime chance and I would encourage house hunters to make the most of it.”
House hunters in Stoke-on-Trent are being asked to submit their applications for a £1 home before the deadline this Monday.
The project will see 35 rundown properties in the Portland Street area transformed.
Applications must be submitted by midday on Monday May 13th. Although the council has received applications for houses from around the world, the only people who meet the eligibility criteria are people who live in Stoke-on-Trent.
