SC Home Comes With Tenant Who Doesn't Pay

'It does not make sense, please don't bother asking'

(Newser) – Your dream home could await in Cayce, SC—if you don't mind living in the same home as a mysterious stranger who is rarely seen and doesn't pay rent. There's no truth-bending to a real estate ad for the $130,000 property on Zillow: It warns that buyers will have to assume responsibility for a tenant who lives rent-free in an apartment on the upper floor of the four-bedroom home, per WJBK. "Upstairs apartment cannot be shown under any circumstances," the listing states. "Occupant has never paid, and no security deposit is being held, but there is a lease in place. (Yes, it does not make sense, please don't bother asking.)"

The home has quite a few other peculiarities, including a large hole in the roof, a weird statue in the backyard, and a door covered in splatters of what one can only hope is red paint, reports AOL. The ad gained traction online after a Twitter user described the home as a "nightmare." Others are now imagining bleeding walls or a resident ghost, per WIS. But though the owners of the property say they've never seen the upstairs tenant, per WJBK, a recently expired ad seeking renters for the home identified the individual as a "professional artist." The home, complete with a separate cottage, is being sold as-is. (This home has a champagne vault and car museum.)
