HOMES Under the Hammer's Martin Roberts noticed something problematic with a property's flooring in South Wales.
Martin visited a questionable property in Tonypandy in South Wales in a recent episode of the BBC renovation show.
A building with six flats that was up for auction at a guide price of £108,000.
But Martin saw something suspicious about the property's flooring.
Taking viewers on a tour of the flat, Martin said: "Straight into this room which is the kitchen. It is very tired and dated and run down.
“Obviously a very old boiler. I think the electrics are definitely going to need sorting out."
He noted he wasn't a fan of the layout or the bathroom as it needed some work.
He continued: “This is your lounge and actually this is where the flat starts to go horribly wrong for me.
“You’ve got some space under the stairs here and then you’ve got this room which is the bedroom.
“I think in this instance I’d turn it into a studio flat. As in, let's just take all the walls down and have a bed that either sits permanently in the corner and we have other things around it or a fold down bed perhaps.
“Get rid of this wall, get rid of that wall."
The presenter then proceeded to the the second flat upstairs and commented: "Floors look a bit wibbly wobbly in there I have to say."
He added: “Bathroom there, again, you could do nice things with that because at the moment it’s not particularly pleasant.
“But, lots of light coming into this one, so we like that. Then through to the living area and your two bedrooms."
Martin pointed out many problems with the property.
He said: "Two things I notice, one is the ceiling. More significant though is the floor because what you probably can’t see is the fact that this floor is all over the place.
“It’s always a bit of a suspicion when you have a really, really overly padded carpet. What is that trying to cover up?
“My guess is the flooring is all over the place."
Despite needing a lot of work, Martin said the property had potential.
Later, viewers find out the building was sold at auction for £158,000.
