Furious couple hang a 6ft sign across their £286,000 new-build house to warn off other buyers after

A furious couple who say their £286,000 new-build is like 'Fawlty Towers' have hung a giant sign from the front of their house to warn off other buyers, Daily Mail reported.

Mother-of-two Faye Douglas, 40, and husband Neil, 38, bought the four-bedroom home on the Persimmon development in Droitwich, Worcestershire, last June.

They made the purchase after the birth of their twin boys to give them a 'forever home' to grow up in.

But Mrs Douglas claims their lives have become a living nightmare after the house was allegedly left strewn with 30 faults - including wonky walls and doors, and windows that don't open properly.

The fed-up couple decided to take matters into their own hands and hang the 6ft by 2ft sign on the property.

It reads: 'Don't buy a home here until you've spoken to us. Huge snags and appalling aftercare!'

Mrs Douglas, a part-time teacher, said: 'We wanted to enjoy a family home but it's just been an absolute nightmare.'

'We've been here for nearly a year and they've done nothing. The house should never have been signed off in this state. We regret buying it, it's got so many faults.

My view: The things they're pointing out are not huge faults. Next time look at homes before you sign to ensure you get exactly what you're paying for.
