Red-faced estate agent as buyers spot ‘let’s go b****s’ banner in £200,000 listing

A property agent has been forced to remove photos from a listing of £200,000 properties after eagle-eyed house hunters spotted a banner with a rude slogan in one of the photos.

In an embarrassing scenario for the agency, the banner that appeared in one of the photos was adorned with the slogan “lets party b*****s”.

The property had been listed by estate agent Nicholas Humphreys and was being marketed as a rental property near a university in Sheffield.

The Rightmove description of the house reads: “We are delighted to bring to the market this four bedroom property with end terrace, ideally located in this highly sought after and popular area near London Road.

“The property has excellent transport links and is located within walking distance of local shops and amenities.

“Currently the property is fully let until June 2022 with rental income of £20,928 per annum offering a yield of up to 10%.”

Photos of the house show its four double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, kitchen and private rear garden.

But house hunters were quick to spot ‘cheeky’ footage from the Grosvenor Square ‘party house’ living room.

Footage from the room showed golden helium balloons spelling out ‘happy birthday’ placed above a widescreen TV, with a banner below reading ‘let’s party b*****s’.

Pattinson Auction, which sells the property at auction, was quick to clarify that the photos are “for general information and it cannot be inferred that any item shown is included in the sale.”

Twitter user FrankieBubs remarked, “I almost bought this house due to the brazen use of these photos on Rightmove.”

A spokesman for Nicholas Humphreys estate agents said: “Thank you for letting me know, I had no idea.

“I can see how this could potentially draw attention – good, bad or otherwise – I understand exactly where that’s coming from.

“I think we should remove that and find another photo of the living room where we ask tenants to take down the banner or take another angle.

“He needs to be replaced clearly.”
