[A Ming Pao Daily News] A Taiwanese Buddhist group buys a large one-acre church site in North Burnaby but has been opposed by a local Chinese church and has therefore evolved into a legal dispute between two church owners. The local Evangelical Lutheran Church, which owns 57% of the property in the land, hopes to sell its land and brokers and discloses that a Seattle-based Buddhist group in Japan is willing to bid $ 8.8 million to buy all of the church's property at a bargain price but has 43 The Vancouver Chinese Church, which owns 100% of the property, is unwilling to agree to sell the land. In order to be able to sell the church land smoothly, the BC Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church filed with the Supreme Court of British Columbia in August last August, requesting the judge to order the land to be sold by the end of October last year. However, Contract, sympathy for the 43% owned Chinese Church Vancouver Chinese Lutheran Church (referred to as VCLC), the verdict is not accepted the sale request. The verdict was made on December 18 last year. The church is still on sale on the lawn of the churchyard at 1005 Kensington Ave. North Beaconsfield. Brokerage Leonardo Difrancesco pointed out that even after the judge ruled that the land is still going on sale, the client he represents is 57% owned by the Lutheran Church, hoping to discuss with the Chinese church the best of both worlds and does not exclude buying Home is willing to buy only 57% of the property. Difrancesco said that as the church has an acre of land and the land is already P1, it can be used as a church, temple or school for institutional use (institutional use) of the land, the current market is particularly sought-after. He added that he had only recently sold another Indian temple on Albert Street in Burnaby, taking over a Christian church. Court documents state that Kensington Ave. land is jointly owned by two different church groups and holds 57% of the ownership of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, which has 48 churches in all British Columbia. Evangelical Lords hope to sell the land, And will sell the proceeds to a 43% owned Chinese VCLC. At present, Chinese VCLC still uses the church, but Evangelical Lutheran Church does not use the church, and the Chinese VCLC is not a member of the Lutheran Church. The documents show that the earliest owner of the church land was the Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church under the Evangelical Lutheran Church, which originally used the church, while the Chinese VCLC moved to the address in 1996 and used the church facilities. Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church (hereinafter referred to as FELC) in 2005 to promote the expansion, with the Chinese VCLC signed a joint ownership and co-management contract, according to the contract, Chinese VCLC must invest 860000 yuan, and in exchange for 43% of the property rights. Later FELC Church was forced to dissolve in December 2011 due to a decrease in the number of believers. At the very beginning, FELC did not immediately transfer property rights to its own Lutheran Evangelicals organization until it formally acquired 57% of the land rights in 2014. The Evangelical Organization said it had received six bids from bidders to buy the land and said that when the two churches signed a co-ownership agreement in 2005, the organization was not one of them and so was not subject to the contractual restrictions. But Carla Forth, a judge in the Supreme Court of BC, did not agree with the Lutheran Church. In her judgment, she said that the issue of controversy on both sides should be dealt with under the terms of the 2005 contract. She also believes that if the Chinese VCLC knows that within a few years after making a large investment, it will be unlikely that the Chinese VCLC will be likely to seek the sale of the land without the consent of the Chinese VCLC by another organization that is not originally contracted Agree to the agreement. Brokers said the owners are still communicating, hoping to find a satisfactory solution for all parties so that the sale of the land can be smooth. Now buyers may be willing to buy 57% of the property rights, but not yet finalized. Brokers said they could not accept the purchase proposal from a Buddhist group in Taiwan if they could not sell it completely. Chinese VCLC was called locally but no response was received.
