According to frighteningly good research from Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks, the idea of sharing a home with a ghost wouldn't put the majority of people off their dream property.

The Halloween survey from the Banks revealed that 67% of those surveyed would not be put off from buying a haunted house, with 6% actually more inclined to view a property with supernatural occurrences.

The number of people who would go as far as backing out of a purchase if they discovered the house came complete with an ethereal lodger was just under 20%, with just 12% stating they would move if they were found out they were sharing a home with ghosts.

Those in the North East and Wales were the most likely to be put off buying a haunted house with 36% opting not to buy a property where things go bump in the night in comparison to just 29% in Yorkshire and the South West.
