A recent poll commissioned by Lloyds TSB also found that a fifth of the 2,000 homebuyers sampled would only contemplate buying a house in which things went bump in the night if an exorcism or "new-age cleansing" took place.
Even knowing that a person had died of natural causes in a house put off 39 per cent of buyers, while a cemetery next door would make 47 per cent think twice.
