Clampdown on house viewing dishonesty


People who view a house will have to promise to be honest, or face being blindfolded when they visit properties that are For Sale.

A blindfold and a possible helmet to thwart peripheral vision, may have to worn by prospective buyers who fail to express a true opinion of any gaudy wallpaper or dated bathrooms.

The Ministry of Honesty (MOH) is responding to complaints from sellers who have to endure over-enthusiastic buyers gasping about how wonderful everything is, when they have no intention of buying the house.

‘If you think the place looks awful, tell them. You’d be doing them a favour,’ said MOH spokesman, Peter Thape.

‘Nobody likes a liar. That’s how the Nazi party started,’ added Thape.
