(Telegraph) A young couple have bought what is believed to be Britain’s cheapest house – for just £1. For less than the price of two first class stamps, Rebecca Dennis and Chris Benn purchased their first home together and have spent the last four months doing it up. It is now believed to be worth £60,000 and the pair are on the property ladder eight years earlier than the average Briton. Miss Dennis, 21, from Stoke-on-Trent, said: “It’s a dream come true to have a house of our own. The £1 price tag is a special bonus!” She and Mr Benn, 22, were thrilled when they landed a place on Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s home ownership scheme offering residents the chance to buy a house for £1.
