Woman details horrific discovery about rental home on TikTok

A woman looking to rent a house in Sydney has made a disturbing discovery about the property.

The potential tenant, who uses the TikTok handle emdeebs, posted a video about the listing for the three-bedroom home in Surry Hills, in Sydney's inner city, for $900 a week.

“Super renovated. All the bedrooms were a good size,” she says in the video.

“Living and kitchen were good as well.”

She thought it seemed like a “sweet” deal. So, she decided to Google the house and accidentally clicked on the News tab, which revealed stories about the property's history.

“I found out that a woman died in the house and I was like, ‘Okay, maybe this isn’t the one for me’,” she says.

The TikTok user mentions the woman was dead in the house for eight years.

“I think I’m going to remove my application,” she says.
