Trà’s worry was real – in some recent incidents at housing projects, customers came out on the losing end. In some situations, apartment projects that were still mortgaged by banks or credit entities were sold to customers, leading to ownership disputes between the parties. Gia Phú Residential Building in HCM City’s Thủ Đức District was the scene of one such incident.
