There's a lot that can be said about what the Chinese are doing regarding renting/buying in western cities...it is changing the real estate landscape for many, including forcing some people to move.  Times are a changing and its predominantly one culture doing it.   Reason #1 I don't own/rent out property. 

 

LOL, What?  :)  How is the former related to a reason for not owning/renting out property?

 

BTW I forced people to move just 2 months ago.  (And I'm not Chinese)  It's the way of things.

This is karma coming back to visit from half way around the world.

 

In Los Angeles I know several Thai families that have bought large square foot homes to live in and also to remodel and rent rooms to others. This violates zoning laws as usually these properties are in single family areas. Since the zoning is violated there can be no issuing of a building permit. No issue of a building permit... that cuts outs out any licensed / registered building contractor. Which in turn becomes construction not in compliance with building codes.

 

You know how the electric wires are run along the wall in Thailand? Same Same in these places. 3 wires for ground? Nope. In fact one room I looked at had used bulk wire that one would use for a lamp plug. No conduit or Romex wire here!! The list could go on but you get the idea.

 

Its all about enforcement because people are going to save (or cheat) money if they can. If the state/city etc have no means of enforcing the laws how can they do so?

 

This is also karma coming back to those in the west who bitch about government overreach and intrusion into citizen's lives and work to defund these government programs that would protect the property owners.

 

(I think it is time to put on my flame retardant suit.)

Whether the Foreign Affairs Dept of the China govt or personal chinese interactions with folks unknown, the basic chinese life policy is simply 'lie and deny, lie and deny, lie and deny'.

Off topic, but I'll ask anyway:  Dude, how did you land a Chinese girlfriend? 

It was pretty much mission impossible but I somehow managed with a lot of effort and time spent going back and forth between here and China. 

 

She's wonderful. A lot of work, but it was worth it.
