Jax and David Ayton have offered a three bedroom-terrace house rent-free to any willing tenant in Darlington.

The property would normally fetch £475 a month, but if your DIY is up to the task, you could live in the property for nothing. The catch is that you'll have to work on the property while you are there - and it is currently in a desperate state.
