Lai See | Disquiet at Pokfulam Estate with management committee

We hear of disquiet at Pokfulam Terrace with some of the owners at loggerheads with the management committee. A new management committee (MC) was elected in April last year and minority owners say that problems began to occur with minutes not reflecting what was said in meetings, owners who criticised the MC being subjected to abuse.

Lai See | Mainland corruption crackdown poses risks for foreign investors

​Every cloud, as the saying goes, has a silver lining. Xi Jinping's corruption crackdown has been bad news for those that were caught up in the 53,085 investigations by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection that occurred in 2014 alone. As a result of these investigations, the CCDI has disciplined 71,748 cadres and "severely disciplined" a further 23,646.

Lai See | Two-month wait for vehicle roadworthiness certificate

​Getting a car through its roadworthiness certificate in Hong Kong is not what it used to be. Some years ago, you could just turn up at a designated vehicle testing centre and the examination would be over in 10 minutes. Now the average waiting period is two months. How can this be in "Asia's world city"?

Lai See | Tennis court saga reflects weakness of the Building Management Ordinance

We hear of more building management related nonsense. This story concerns the tennis court at the Oscar by the Sea development at Tseung Kwan O, and is another example of how the Building Management Ordinance offers little protection to minority owners in the face of an entrenched owners' committee.
