    I am born before 1997 and before anyone asks -no I am not eligible for the direct ROA for personal reasons. Thus I have to live here for 7 years

    so how come you don't have right to land status esp considering your offspring of indigenous hk person?

    Thanks! Your comment seems to align with what I have heard in my village.

    has your father already used his ding kuen/right to build or sold his one? if no, why do you ask to him to build on his land ? that will save you a year as you don't have to transfer the name on the land deeds, he can started applying now and hopefully within 6-9 years, you and your dad can move into this newly built rural house, but if you do it under your name, first you have to wait until you eligible for pernament residence within hk, that's 7 years before you even started the process of planning application and building

    Also, what tax do I have to pay for building a village house

    Yes he has already used his. So I can only utilise mine.

    The application process takes a lot of time and can be delayed for any reason.

    I also have an application in for 8 years already, my uncle's application has been outstanding for 15 years. I knew an old guy in my village who literally died whilst waiting for approval.

    It takes a long time because its not a very popular policy, many villages are too densely built up, too many villagers are abusing the policy, and also because of normal government admin and bureaucracy.

    Spare a thought for all the women who have died while waiting...
