Croatia real estate


Lean Time

Pisa-ed off Jiang Zuozhu is suing planning officials in eastern China after a building cock-up caused his home to fall over like Italy's famous leaning tower.

Planners allowed developers to build right next to Jiang's three-storey detached house - in Shiqiaotou, Zhejiang province - damaging is its foundations.

"My house now leans so badly that if it wasn't for the other house for it to rest on it would topple right over," said Jiang.

"I've asked the council to help and they just talk. Now we're taking them to court to make them do something," he added.

Wife Yang Xiuying - who hung up a banner saying 'Who Dares Live Here' - added: "This is our home. We have nowhere else to go."
