No House Giveaway!
Terrible scripted presenter on the Cramlington episode. £6k overspend but look at the legal costs before you criticise the converters £14k. At least they made a small profit £9k divided by two for 6 months work! After first sale fell through it sold for a further £18k I hope they got there money an extra £9k each!!!

Poor Show rips off Contestants
The whole basis of the show seems to be to build up and then smash down the contestants and the fees etc are not reasonable as from buying and selling over 40 houses the fee scale are extremely large Big Richard

Ripped off by the BBC
I agree with the slave labour comments it’s simply not worth putting ask that effort in for nothing. The fees are a convenient method of ensuring no profit and it should be taken off air as a big fat con! Also those doing the work should be able to negotiate the sale price but the programme presenters …. Shameful ??

What Total Crap!
These poor people, working like dogs for months on end with no chance of any profit. Please explain the fees and budgets? The only people who profit from this are the awful presenters!

Stupid...
The chapel episode is on,now,I didn’t see it,first time round.How absolutely unbelievable,expecting 2 rank amateurs to tackle that kind of job,and to complete it and have it sold,at a profit,in 6 months.Of course they then bring in Brookside Simon,and his band of Merry men,to throw up the walls.In the real world that would cost a packet.The whole thing is stupid,stupid,stupid.Oh,and stupid,too.

Complete rip off
Most of the episodes make him look like a scouse con man Agree with all of the above comments Fees are fictitious

Fees
They must be auction fees,plus 6 months of council tax on top.The whole show is wrong.Everyone has their full-time job to maintain.No say in how much budget they will need(real developers do their research).The whole thing is badly thought out.

GreatHouse Takeaway
Yep That’s the correct title for this SCAM of a programme,Two strangers giving up 6 months of their time to renovate a house for nothing to show financially at the end,The people that walk away mid term are the real stars of this pathetic rip off format to line the pockets of others...modern day slavery
