Editor's Note: The recent collapse of a 20-year-old residential building that claimed one life and injured six others in Fenghua, East China's Zhejiang province, has sent a signal warning for government overhaul of many other buildings in China that could potentially fall.

The hidden dangers in these buildings are caused partly due to compensation disputes between demolition companies and occupants. Other reasons include sinking ground under the building, poor construction and a shortage of money for reconstruction. The following is a collection of some unsafe houses.
