    Flat buyers smell scam in UK projects


    As more Hong Kong people are investing in overseas properties, there could be risks involved - even if the projects are located in developed countries like Britain.

    A group of 60 buyers protested at Wan Chai police headquarters at the weekend to demand cooperation with British police to investigate a potential scam involving unfinished presale overseas properties in Bradford and Manchester.

    An estimated 200 locals had bought presale flats at five projects in Bradford and Manchester, being built by a British developer - Absolute Living Development - in 2014. One of the projects was called Olicana House. The purchases were made through a local agency known as Hong Kong Homes.

    Some projects were supposed to be completed in the second half of 2015. However, Absolute Living Development was wound up in February, and representatives of the projects disappeared. Some buyers visited a construction site and discovered there was no building there.

    After the developer folded, the real estate agency suggested buyers make the remaining payments to "save" the project. The buyers then found out the developer transferred 85 percent of the proceeds to a creditor, and some people were board members of both companies. The buyers suspected a scam.

    Lawmaker James To Kun-sun said about 200 to 500 buyers were involved and had either paid in full or a 50 percent deposit.
    To estimated each buyer stood to lose around HK$500,000, with the total sum possibly reaching HK$150 million.

    One of the buyers said agents told them in 2014 the rental return was guaranteed to be 8 percent for the first four to five years after completion.

    The buyer further alleged the developer arranged for lawyers from Britain to explain property deeds, and he believed in Britain¡¦s legal system. However, To said there are no laws to supervise the sale of overseas properties in Hong Kong.

    David Hui, sales director of Centaline Property project department (China & Overseas), said buyers need to be wary of developers launching presale projects for the first time.

    Police said 24 complaints were received involving HK$8.38 million on Saturday. The case will be followed up by the Commercial Crime Bureau.

    Hong Kong Police confirm Runcorn flats conversion company probe

    Matter passed to commercial crime bureau after 118 people claim they were 'deceived', following protests outside police HQ and UK consulate.

    Hong Kong Police (HKP) has confirmed it is examining allegations made in connection with a company behind a controversial flats project in Runcorn.

    In a reply to the question whether it was investigating Absolute Living Developments (ALD), an HKP spokesman said it had received reports from 118 individuals who ‘suspected they were deceived while investing in properties involving HK$74.17m’ and the matter was being ‘followed up by the commercial crime bureau’.

    ALD was the company that launched the controversial bid to convert the asbestos-contaminated East Lane House in Runcorn into 448 one-bedroom flats, 394 of them in the ‘studio’ style.

    Winding-up proceedings are now under way at ALD.

    Last week it was reported that angry investors had protested outside Hong Kong Police headquarters and the British Consulate General in Hong Kong over ALD.

    Chinese and trade press articles from publications including The South China Morning Post, RTHK, The Standard and Property Industry Eye had covered the demonstrations.

    The investors are being represented by Hong Kong lawmaker and trained solicitor James To Kun-sun, whose office has said one of the complaints relates to one flat at East Lane House.

    A spokeswoman for Mr To said the protests were in connection with ‘suspected fraud’ and ‘about five projects in the UK’.

    They have claimed the matter could damage the UK’s business reputation.

    Mr To has written to the Consulate General Caroline Wilson and City Of London police commissioner Ian Dyson.

    Companies House documents showed that ALD was first registered to an address in London and later Liverpool and prior to December its directors were based in Malaysia.

    Management of the East Lane House flats scheme has passed to another company, Singapore-based Daniel Mark Harrison & Co.

    The UK Foreign And Commonwealth Office and City Of London
    police commissioner Ian Dyson were approached for comment.

    Sotheby’s International Realty terminates franchise agreement with Sino Gateway

    Statement says firm is ‘disappointed to learn of the legal matters involving [Gateway offshoot] Hong Kong Homes’


    Sotheby’s International Realty, the New Jersey headquartered estate agency franchise, has terminated its agreement with Hong Kong partner Sino Gateway, after claiming the latter was involved in “legal matters” over its ability to sell properties overseas.

    “Effective August 26, 2016, we terminated our franchise agreement with Sino Gateway that previously did business as Hong Kong Sotheby’s International Realty,” Sotheby’s said in a written email to the South China Morning Post on Tuesday.

    Sotheby’s said it had terminated the agreement as it was “disappointed to learn of the legal matters involving Hong Kong Homes.” It did not elaborate.

    Sino Gateway is owned by veteran property agent Samson Law, who also owns another agency called Hong Kong Homes, which specialises in selling overseas properties to Hong Kong buyers.

    Hong Kong Homes was the marketing agent promoting a number of uncompleted properties in Manchester to Hong Kong buyers two years ago.

    But some of the projects failed to be completed according to schedule, triggering angry buyers to report the case to the Hong Kong police.

    In June, a group of 60 buyers protested outside Wan Chai police headquarters, calling for an investigation involving the unfinished presale properties Manchester and Bradford.



    As more Hong Kong people invest in overseas properties, there could be risks involved. The government should consider how to protect buyers and how to regulate the industry

    KOH KENG-SHING, LANDSCOPE CHRISTIE’S INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE CHIEF EXECUTIVE AND FOUNDER

    Hong Kong media reported that hundreds of local buyers bought units in 2014 to be built by British homebuilder Absolute Living Department. But the developer was wound up in February this year. Hong Kong Homes was the marketing agent for some of the projects.

    Hong Kong Homes also marketed another project called Angelgate in Manchester, which was developed by PinnacleMCGlobal, slated to be completed in February 2016. Construction work was delayed after their building contractor went into administration.

    Asked why the agreement was terminated, Law of Hong Kong Homes, said: “Let me think about how to answer you.”

    Sotheby’s started the franchise agreement with Sino Gateway in 2010. Law told the Post in a 2010 interview that it was a 25-year franchise agreement.

    Sotheby’s International Realty is a subsidiary of Realogy Holdings Corp, a New York-listed company in real estate franchising and provider of real estate brokerage, relocation and settlement services.

    In February 2004, Realogy entered a long-term strategic alliance with Sotheby’s, the operator of the auction house. The agreement provided for the licensing of the Sotheby’s International Realty name and the development of a full franchise.

    “As more Hong Kong people invest in overseas properties, there could be risks involved. The government should consider how to protect buyers and how to regulate the industry,” said Landscope Christie’s International Real Estate chief executive and founder Koh Keng-shing.

    The sale and purchase of overseas properties are not subject to the regulation of the Estate Agents Ordinance.

    Ameer Abas was a former director of Absolute Living Developments (ALD), whose collapse this year is being investigated by police in Hong Kong. He is listed at Companies House under the name Ameerali BIN ABAS.

    The liquidation of ALD has left three projects in Bradford unfinished and has sparked protests in Hong Kong, where hundreds of buy-to-let investors fear they have lost millions of pounds.

    Abas is now a director of Golden Sands Developments Limited, another company which builds apartments and sells them to overseas buy-to-let investors.
