Answer

(Fatwa: 931/518/D=1432)

You should change your house if you can easily get another house. But, if it is difficult you should sit in the toilet diverting your direction from Qiblah, because turning one’s back or face towards qiblah while answering nature’s call is makrooh. But it is far better if the owner of house changes the direction of the seat.
