70 people file lawsuit for property ownership certificates
    2018-08-02  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

VIP members of Shenzhen Golf Club who reside in villas there have filed a lawsuit with a local court asking the land authority to issue them ownership certificates for the properties on the land parcel in downtown Futian District, which the city government is to reclaim.

The land contract for the Shenzhen Golf Club expired in 2015, and the city government refused to extend the contract with the club’s operating company. Covering an area of 1.4 square kilometers, the golf club is located in the upmarket Xiangmihu area. There are 70 villas inside the golf club, where the golf club’s VIP members and their families live.

According to the advertisements for the Shenzhen Golf Club in 1995 and 1997, VIP members were eligible to live in the villas, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported Tuesday. The 70 people each paid between HK$8 million (US$1.17 million) and HK$10 million to become VIP members of the golf club and live in the villas.

However, under the city government’s planning, the land parcel on which the golf club was built was not for residential use.

According to the operating company of the Shenzhen Golf Club and the city’s land authority, the villa residents paid for memberships, which only offered them the right to use the villas. Under the agreement signed between one of the VIP members and the golf club, the villas cannot be traded on the market, but the membership was tradable.

However, according to a document regarding land management released by the city government in 2001, owners of property on non-residential land that can’t be traded on the housing market must pay the land price differences before the property may be traded.

The villa residents regard the document as proof that they should be allowed to obtain property ownership certificates for the villas. Their applications in 2003 and 2006 were rejected by the government.

The liquidators of the golf club said there were different opinions on how to interpret the document. The city government has said it would pay reasonable compensation for the structures on the land the golf club now occupies and the land lot will be included into the plans for Xiangmihu area.
