The Akthars

Series 1 · Episode 11

The 14 members (and three generations) of the Akthar family need to live apart but are trapped by the current property market in an unsellable Victorian terrace in Bradford, West Yorkshire. Desperate for an offer, they have cut the price and sacked their agent. And now 20-year-old Shumi is marketing the home herself. The structurally impressive, six-bedroom property features two spacious reception rooms, and an ideal location close to the city centre… But with its garbled décor, dodgy DIY, Spartan kitchen, and graffiti-enhanced bedroom, the home is completely unsellable. Enter property experts John Rennie and Sofie Allsopp. They vow to free the Akthars from their ball-and-chain home. And while John helps Shumi decide whether she should really be selling the house herself, Sofie clears out the family and furnishings, revamps the dining room and kitchen, and freshens up the bedrooms with a tasteful colour scheme. Will their hard work pay off?
