A house is due to go under the hammer on Monday - and could be snapped up for just £1.
The end terrace in Tunstall Terrace West, in the Ashbrooke area of Sunderland, has three bedrooms and a bathroom and is being marketed as an "ideal investment".
But the property's bargain guide price is due to "hazards of a serious nature" being found in the building.
Anyone wishing to enter the property has to sign a disclaimer and go in at their own risk, auctioneers Andrew Craig said.
The listing said: "Attention Buyers! No Buyers Premium To Pay! Guide price £1. Yes you have read this correctly £1 with no reserve."
Images of the property, which is close to the city's university, show a stripped back house with a kitchen that would appear to need a lot of work.
The auction will take place at Newcastle Marriott Hotel, Gosforth Park, at 7pm.
