This is a common situation in China right now.|
My girlfriend's sister lives in their hometown in Hubei province, which is being "eaten" by the nearby city. The government sent her a letter with an "offer" to buy her house and land. She doesn't feel the price is fair.
Has anyone here faced that issue successfully, that is, gotten the government to pay a fair price instead of their first offer?
My girlfriend tells me that in China, since this is the all-powerful government, one needs to know the right person to come up with a solution. One cannot use logic or the law. (I suggested asking a lawyer, but she is convinced that is not going to help)
If you know someone who might be able to help or someone who has successfully negotiated, would you please let me know by Personal Message so I can put my girlfriend's sister in touch with him/her?
Alternately, maybe something else can be helpful; something that would help but is maybe not along the line of what I'm thinking?
My girlfriend told her sister: "we will try, but you should be ready to accept the government's offer if we can't find the right person."
I often read articles here of Chinese farmers taking drastic measures, often ending in their own death, to try to physically protect their livelihoods from the government. I wonder if there are some cases that end up more happily...
