A North Carolina woman says the home next door to hers is so dilapidated she is having problems trying to sell her own.

With boarded up windows, a porch that is falling apart and debris everywhere, this is one neighbour we would not like to have.

In addition to the home's appearance there are also hundreds of domesticated bees on the property in the historic town of Riedsville.

Mary Lee has been living with the problem for over a decade and says "it is preventing me from selling my home and moving on with my life."

A local estate agent has told Mary that it will be next to impossible to sell her house if the property next door stays the way it is.

The mayor of Riedsville says he feels sorry for the residents but that there is nothing he can do.
