BEIJING: A woman was shocked to discover the first floor flat that she purchased in central China was half a meter below ground level.

Local newspaper Huashang Daily reported that the woman from Xian, Shaanxi province was “speechless” to find that her window sill was at street level despite the sales contract stipulating clearly that it was on the first floor.

It was only until the entire project was completed and the woman had received the keys from the developer that the woman realized the problem. All this happened with the payment already made in full before and the contract already signed, a common practice in buying flats in mainland Chinese cities.

“The road surface is just outside my window. It’s half a meter higher than the floor,” she complained to the newspaper. “I can see the feet of pedestrians passing by the window.”

The building was located in the front of the multi-tower complex and adjacent to a street, a visit by the newspaper confirmed.

The complex is built on a slope, and observed from the street on the downhill side of the building, the floor on which the woman’s flat is located above a row of shops. But on the uphill side, the ground rises to a height above first-floor level.

The contract never mentioned any anomaly nor was the woman notified of any.

The developer says that he was negotiating the matter with the buyer and refused to comment further.
