Online estate agency House Network has teamed up with the Ghostfinder Paranormal Society to offer a special spooky service until Halloween.

The brand will offer its vendors the chance to prove their property is not inhabited by ghosts, following research that shows a ‘haunted’ house can retail for less than their market value. 

The Ghostfinder Paranormal Society has been brought on board for the stunt, and will carry out House Network’s Ghost-Free Certification service. The estate agent stated it aims to provide ‘complete visibility’ on both sides of a housing sale.

The investigations take several hours depending on the size of the house, and involve the setting up of a temporary camera and static-recording equipment.

Mark Readings, chief executive at House Network said: "We’re always looking for ways to go that extra step for our customers so we’re extremely proud to be the first estate agent in the world to launch a service like this.

"Although this service is designed to help our vendors show that worries about the paranormal are not a reason to be put off making an offer - and we’ll not be certifying homes as haunted - if something supernatural was found on an investigation, sellers do have a moral obligation and duty of disclosure to inform prospective buyers of events that may affect the value of their property."
