This house, in Clydach Vale, is an average two up two down property - but at £4,000, it could be the cheapest property in the UK.

It's listed as a traditional house, with two reception rooms, two bedrooms and an enclosed garden, but auctioneer Paul Fosh says the terraced home is in need of total renovation, including urgent attention to the roof.

And despite its tattered appearance, Mr Fosh anticipates the house will get a lot of attention.

The house will go to auction on August 2 at the Park Inn Hotel in Cardiff.
