The day Kay was offered the apartment, he had no idea of its condition. But since the price was attractive, he agreed to buy it.

"When I agreed to buy it, I drove round and had a little look but you couldn't look through the windows because they were covered up."

Taylor filmed his first entry into the apartment as he fought his way inside, saying he was immediately greeted by "the worst smell I've ever smelled."
