Henderson sends fourth reply letter over Mid-Levels flat sales Henderson Land Development has sent a seven-page reply letter, with an appendix of more than 20 pages, to the Lands Department regarding the delayed completion of sales of 24 luxury flats at 39 Conduit Road, a company spokesman said. This was the developer's fourth response to the government. In October, the company said 25 flats had been sold at the Mid-Levels project. Last month, the Land Registry said only one sale Henderson had registered had been completed. In the firm's third response letter it listed the names of the buyers, how much they paid for a deposit, the original deadline for them to conclude the deal and the extended deadline, which is June 16.
