China Building Evacuation Update

Homeowners Wu Ping and her husband refused to move or sell their home in Chongqing, China, despite governmental pressures. The recent eyewitness report from SNTC showed the shark infested moat created to coerce the Ping family to abandon their property.

Local authorities have since drained the moat, and have adopted new tactics. Ms. Wu is now being fined the equivalent of $500 per day for neglecting her front yard and violating the local “beautiful, natural, always” landscaping ordinance.

Last House on the Block Owner

Ms. Wu responds that although she attempted three times to reseed her front lawn with a St. Augustine and Kentucky Bluegrass seed mix, it all washes away when she puts the sprinklers out. “And the weeds are out of control too,” she adds “because I can’t reach them!”

    I was a real estate litigator for a financing firm and in my several years of experience I’ve never seen nor heard such a case as outrageous as the Wu’s. Must be their law on land ownership. Does China have the “power of Imminent Domain”? China is a communist country.

    yang–

    The “story” on this website was posted as sarcastic humor, but it was also posted with respect, as it appeared to be a very unusual story to come out of China.

    The Wu Ping family deserves accolades just for attempting to stand up to governmental pressure, even though they lost their home.

    We are fighting the same battles with “eminent domain” here in the U.S. as well.

    julius– It’s “Eminent Domain,” not “Imminent.”
