ABERDEEN squatter Lee Chau-ying's gamble paid off yesterday when the Government announced plans to demolish his squalid home on a dangerous slope. He paid $40,000 for the tin hut only six months ago and will now be guaranteed a place on a public housing estate, by-passing the normally lengthy queue. Mr Lee, 49, a Hospital Authority handyman, admitted intentionally buying his near-derelict home at 20-year-old Sun Wai village on a slope next to Grantham Hospital in the hope of getting rehoused. 'Certainly, I could not have known the Government would tear it down so soon, but it made a good investment,' he said. Government policy is to allocate public housing to squatters, who may be exempt from income limit screening. Some get priority to buy home ownership scheme flats. Anyone moving to a squatter area before its residents are registered stands a chance of being offered free rehousing in a public flat - a loophole which critics have warned may encourage people to become squatters. Closure orders, which reached the 20 families in Sun Wai yesterday, said the slope where the huts were built was dangerous. They were told to move before December 19. Buildings Department's Chief Building Surveyor (dangerous building) Kwok Yui-chung warned the slope could become dangerous after heavy rain. 'Besides, the squatter structures are so dilapidated they are no longer suitable for living in.'
