In the mid-1990s, Australian villa set off a wave of sales boom. Guangzhou Aomei Real Estate Development Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Aomei company) has attracted a large number of senior intellectuals, retired employees, medical staff, engineers, businessmen, etc. with the advertisement of down payment of 38000 yuan, interest free installment payment, etc., to subscribe for the beautiful environment and the Australian mountain villa adjacent to the forest.
In 2000, Australia and the United States company due to capital chain break, resulting in the Australian villa. The ensuing dispute over creditors rights has forced the owners into it. There are more than 2000 owners in the villa. Only about 60 of them have completed the delivery of their houses, and only 20 of them often live here.
Every family has too many stories, but most of them are not good, said Mr. Joe, the representative of the Australian villa owners.

Life put into it
Zhang Feng was not in Australia when he was 30 years old.
Zhang Lingfeng grew up in a house of more than 10 square meters. His room was narrow and crowded. He had to go to the public bathroom and bathroom when he was sleeping in bed and sundries under the bed. For our generation, having a house is very important and we must fight for it.
Zhang Lingfeng left the state-owned enterprises and began to do business on her own. The house she wanted was very much at that time. At the same time, Australian villa began to advertise everywhere, down payment of 38000 yuan, interest free installment payment.
Australia villa is located in Jinkeng village, Huangpu District, Guangzhou city. Although it is far away from the urban area and the traffic is not convenient, it is close to the mountain and near the water and is suitable for living. Zhang Lingfeng likes houses built on the mountains. When she first went to see the house in Australias villa, she found that her vision was very wide and she was moved. She bought a 58.35 square meter house in accordance with the requirements of the real estate developers mortgage loan.
In August 2003, Zhang Lingfeng heard that the house in Australias mountain villa had begun to rot. It was the first time Zhang Lingfeng heard the word unfinished, and she did not know the exact meaning of the word.
Zhang Lingfeng decided to go and have a look around the villa. She saw that the villa, which had been very lively two years earlier, was silent. Twenty or thirty families scattered in the villa disappeared. She found that her house had been pried, the contents of which had been stolen, and there was no water or electricity in the house, and the walls were still moldy

Zhang Lingfeng asked the local housing management department, what is the unfinished business in the end?
The housing management department staff told her, in short, the house can not live, there is no way to apply for a certificate. Zhang Lingfeng understood that this house could not be lived or sold, because it was a mortgage loan, and the owner had to pay back to the bank, this is over, and Ive put my life into it..
All kinds of blows came one after another. As early as 1999, when Zhang Lingfeng lost his business, his depression became more serious. He was sued by the bank. According to the contract, the owner paid the principal of the loan to the bank, and the developer, Aomei company, paid the interest to the bank. However, the company stopped paying since September 2000.
Zhang Lingfeng remembers very clearly that on January 20, 2011, it was the great cold in the 24 solar terms. On the 17th of the twelfth lunar month, all her savings totaled only 19000 yuan. She was desperate and sad. She had to borrow money for the new year when she was 40 years old.

In 2011, Zhang Lingfeng searched the Internet for QQ groups related to Australian hills. QQ group is full of Australian villa owners, there are people who send information about the villa every day. The owners try to understand the reason for the unfinished business, so as to protect their rights together.
In 2002, the construction of the Australian villa stopped. The next year, the scaffolding in the villa had been corroded and collapsed.
The owners took the company to court, demanding damages for delayed delivery. The owners found that despite winning the lawsuit, Australia and the United States could not pay liquidated damages. Mr. Qiao said that the owners told developers one after another, still can not solve the problem, the house rotten again and again.

The owners tried to find the bank, the government, the media According to the Guangzhou urban and Rural Development Commission, the long-term rights protection activities of the owners of Australias mountain villa have been listed as a major potential risk of instability in Guangdong Province, city and district.
It has become the work plan of Guangzhou urban and Rural Construction Committee to promote the revitalization and reconstruction of Australian villa. In 2013, the second plenary meeting of the Guangzhou task force on dealing with uncompleted residential buildings deliberated and approved the work plan for revitalization and reconstruction of Australian villa. It shows that ausco introduced Guangzhou Fangxing Real Estate Construction Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Fangxing company) and its subsidiaries for cooperative development.
Mr. Qiao said that in 2013, the government departments intervened to solve the problem of uncompleted villa houses, which gave the owners only one hope. As a result, the problem is intertwined and snowballed.
The owners have been waiting for three years, but the house is still vacant. On June 23, 2016, Zhang Lingfeng reflected the written opinions on the reconstruction of the villa to the Guangzhou Municipal Land and resources and Planning Commission. According to the reply from Guangzhou Municipal Land and resources and Planning Commission, the project has a long history, complicated situation, many problems left over from history and great difficulty in reconstruction. The government departments at all levels adhere to the established guidelines of the work conference on the reconstruction of the villa and spare no effort to actively promote the start-up construction.

I dont want to be a portrait hanging on the wall
Over the years, the representatives of the owners of the Australian villa have not been idle.
According to Mr. Qiao, the owners representative has turned over a series of problems, such as the unfinished villa and land transfer, into the latest detailed materials.
The staff of relevant departments of Huangpu District Government of Guangzhou also investigated the unfinished problems of Australia villa, maintained communication with the owners representative, and submitted various solutions to the superior departments. The owners are not sure whether the plan has been approved by the superior departments and when it will be implemented.
The next is still waiting.
In the past 20 years, there are too many stories about more than 2000 families in the villa, but most of them are not good. Some people buy houses according to the requirements of the developers and get into debt; some people go crazy and jump into the Huangpu River; some people dont live in the villa until they die; some people worry that they will become portraits when they collect their houses
On the Mid Autumn Festival in 2020, the representatives organized a gathering of owners. Mr. Qiao made statistics and more than 300 owners were present. At a glance, everyones hair is white, and some old people are supported by their families. The oldest is Ms. Zhou, 90, a senior engineer.
Mr. Qiao said that it is a kind of predestination for us to become neighbors of Australias mountain villa. Now we are still fighting for rights together, which is even more important. We always hope that one day we can live in the villa, although its really difficult.
He sighed and said, some people look at the body is good, but after all, they are old, fate is changeable, if you want to say no, it will be gone. You see, Maradona is the king of the ball.

Pyrotechnics in temporary transition
On November 29, a sunny day came to Australias villa.
Inside the door of the villa stands a big notice board, which shows the whole story of the Australian villa.

There will be no remedy for the failure of the villa. Zhang Lingfeng looked at it and regretted, the pool in front of the door and the large glass window in the living room are all carefully designed. Its a pity that they didnt work.

The old owner planted a large area of vegetables, flowers, fruit trees in the open space at the gate The soil of the villa is fertile, and the carambola trees are rich in fruits. Zhang Lingfeng picked the carambola, washed the mouth, sweet into the heart. This time, Zhang Lingfeng found that the popularity of Australias mountain resort has become more and more popular.
