Furor as fleeing foreigners leave Hungarian homes to the rats
Houses abandoned by their foreign owners in South-Eastern Hungary are being invaded by rats, blighting the surrounding villages, writes penzcentrum.hu.
According to the portal, around the middle of the last decade numerous houses and lots in Somogy County's picturesque Koppányvölgy valley were purchased by Austrian, German, Dutch and Swiss nationals. While some of these foreigners stayed and even assimilated, many have since cut and run, allowing vermin to take their place.
Residents are said to be waiting for the local authorities to do something about the problem, but the latter say that trying to find foreign owners who bought and then moved away would be a waste of time.
No word yet if there is any similar trend in other foreigner-invested parts of the Hungarian property market.
