1.        an act or instance of holding out.
2.        a person who delays signing a contract in hopes of gaining more favorable terms: The basketball star was a holdout until they offered more money.
3.        a person who declines to participate, cooperate, agree, etc.: Aside from one or two holdouts, everyone contributed.



"Holdout" might be THE BEST CHOICE, as least till now, which is fundamentally  compliance with the meaning of "ding zi hu" .

But " holdout " dosen't contain the connotation for " the reluctant HOUSE-moving owner" , does it?
