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
How come it takes 6-7years? Can someone breakdown the different stages?
Also, what tax do I have to pay for building a village house
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.
