Q: How can my partner get her House` Book after 7yrs?

Before I met my partner 5yrs ago, she lost her job because of closures so she bought a house with her severance pay and paid the full amount, no mortgage.  She has been promised the House Book (deeds) all this time and is still waiting. I bought an apartment and have since given her half, we have a House Book each.  Now the government (Guanxi) says that no one can own more than one house and we could be up for around 100,000 Rmb.   The House Company who is instrumental in all these delaying tactics say that we can have the house but will need to pay the difference between the purchase price and it's now present value; could be as much as 300,000 Rmb. Because she is women, the H.C. office workers have given her such a hard time and suggest, no, insist that she walk away from the property so this corrupt company can  re sell it at an immense profit. Her son is living there and my partner has told him not to vacate for any length of time as she is afraid the H.C. men will move in and shift everything out.  There is obviously collusion between the H.C. and Government and no sympathy for my partner.  I am no help as I do not speak the language. She won't go to the police for help as she thinks that they are as corrupt as the rest and will offer them assistance  to get her out. We need help, so, where do we stand?

sounds like a scam either she scammed / scamming you or they scammed her.

it is nothing for a woman to invest 5 years in a relationship to scam the bf out of a huge sum of money. it is common throughout asia actually.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
