tlc needed

Poor abandoned house... Probably as a result of an inheritance dispute. In France you don't get to decide much about what you do with your estate. You have to leave the bulk of it to all your children equally. If they can't agree unanimously about what to do with it - keep or sell -  this can happen.


  1. What a waste! I feel sorry not only for the building but for its neighbours.

  2. You're right. An added problem is that the banks are very reluctant to lend money to buy old houses, even if they're not in a state like this one. They'll give you the money to build but not to restore.
