Hi, I am a male indigenous villager but with NO PR status in HK. I am currently in HK with my British passport on the Second Generation Visa Scheme. After contacting the Land Department it seems that as long as I can prove my "Indigenous Status" I can build a village house (3 story, 700sq ft) from my village on private land. (FYI, is in Yuen Long)
Before that, I am a newbie and want to clarify some things:
1. I am wondering how long the process will take from the start of submitting my application to when I can move in and live in the house?
2. What are my finance options? which banks are willing to lend me money to build the village house? and if so, how much? and when do I need the money to be available? before the construction? during? before the paper work begins?
3. How much does it cost on average? I understand that depending on my taste it would vary, for simplicity, how much would just a standard 3 story, 3 flats house cost to build?
4. Can anyone recommend any contractors? it seems that only pre-approved contractors can build village houses.
