Residents of a deteriorating apartment building are refusing to leave their homes and move to a new building as they do not know how much they will be compensated for their loss.


The three-floor building, located at 440 Tran Hung Dao Street in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 5, which was built before 1975, is home to 20 households. The HCMC Construction Department in 2017 said that the building was at risk of collapsing and urgently needed to be demolished.


District 5 authorities offered to move each household to 80-square-meter apartments in An Phu Building in District 6, where they would be allowed to live rent-free for at least two years.
