Event Review [2] with the legal analysis of talking about this, let's look at these incidents behind shady.
For Shanghai Building crunchy "event, the flourishing of a variety of claims." Cut corners, "said the foundation is not strong", "riverside high-rise buildings should not say" the flood wall impact that numerous people, but called it a kinds of wonders, and made its mysterious Xuanhu. from the site you can see the whole of the building toward the south side of the fallen, the overall framework of the building is actually no significant deformation, even window glass broken, lying quietly on the site is like a lying unconscious giant on a 13-storey building, the most unlikely man to see is one side of the foundation, but the building down cover, he just completely expose the foundations of the building to the people of the world extraordinary things there must be very due miracle show precisely might be the ugliest of things.

"Tofu buildings" collapsed, along with it with fallen Professional Responsibility of the Chinese property market, security, quality and moral conscience. Really hoping to hear a cry of the real estate sector, in tonight if people of conscience, you supposed to cry, if you have a little love of their occupation, you should cry, if you can fully understand the the housing feelings of the common people, you're supposed to cry ...

Let's take a look at this piece of land on our own growth, is the scene of how the scene. The Xiuzhou "floor YY" event has been filling the ugly. Zhejiang Province Quality Inspection Station of Construction Engineering Limited test results: 17 Building north side of the pile compressive strength significantly higher than the south side, eventually leading to the southward tilt of the building, this phenomenon is due to the pile foundation cut corners caused by design standards, pile 8.0 m deep, and sampling to staff Building 17, the north side of the pile length between 3.6 to 7.9 meters, the south side of the pile in between 5.7 to 7.7 meters long.

Practical problems specific analysis of the building quality problems not only simple, it comes to the legal aspects of tort liability, breach of contract, housing quality, citizens residency return to their roots traceable have to start from the Construction Law, Construction Law and social point of According to the survey, 83% of people believe that the construction quality because housing construction and renovation, while 17% of people believe that government oversight. study the fundamental reason for building quality and safety problems not just more than two points, analyze the reasons summarized as follows:
1, the buildings are poorly designed. Housing construction quality and safety problems exist with the design of the house has a great relationship, the design of the building for a house as strong stability can not be ignored. Give you an example, the design of the roof waterproofing will find local flashings eaves height is not enough; free drainage on the roof, eaves Ministry for Tin Pan water eaves, and coil popped cornice edge addition selection of hollow floor kitchen and bathroom design, and is not waterproof layer, through the floor and down the water pipe without casing above these leaks are hidden.

2, building materials and improper selection of building materials constitute the houses of the most important things, such as the choice of waterproofing works asphalt varieties, chosen for the quality and variety of the linoleum, precast floor pouring gravel particle size, plastering sand containing control of the amount of mud, wood windows and doors the choice of wood species, are decisive influence on the quality of the project.

3 construction site supervision is not enough construction site supervision behavior is not in place is another reason that caused quality problems. Beyond qualified to undertake the supervision of the business the individual supervision units in order to seek economic benefits, the project supervision agency personnel qualifications, equipped not meet the requirements, there are supervisory personnel undocumented phenomenon of induction, site supervision and quality control system is not perfect.

The above three small dots are starting from home builders to analyze the reasons for quality problems, this is also the main reason housing quality problems from other aspects we think there are the following two points:
1, the supervision of the relevant government departments are not in place, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Guo Yunchong, Vice Minister pointed out that some places government regulation is not in place, because the final checks necessary to the government to guard the pass, government supervision and management, enterprise management, personnel the quality management, project management, government final checks. "we view (CCTV12 << >> two sessions, special programs" I suggest >> [5] seen one of the reasons for the government's ineffective supervision of housing quality problems.

2, the supervision of the people, the awareness of the law is not strong on the surface, housing quality problems and the emergence of security risks and there is no causal relationship between the citizens, they are often victims and how to cause the housing quality problems? Careful analysis can be drawn: a considerable number of people neglect this issue also contributed to the arrogance of the illegal construction of unscrupulous developers.

, Strategy and outlook

1, and enhance awareness of the rights of citizens. << Real estate sales management approach >> Article 35: commercial housing delivery, the buyer that the main structure of substandard quality, commissioned works in accordance with the relevant provisions of the quality inspection agencies to re-verification. verification, indeed the main structure of substandard quality, the buyer is entitled to check-out, resulting in losses to the buyer, the real estate development enterprises shall be liable for compensation. departure of the terms from the buyer's point of view, to the buyer interest-based to protect their interests from a legal point of view, the law gives some support of the broad masses of the people and provide a legal basis for them defenders.

Improve legislation to further regulate the construction unit, construction unit behavior and strengthen their awareness of the law. From the point of view of each case, the responsibility of the construction unit is not shirk, it is their improper behavior that makes the existence of hidden dangers, and even accidents. << Architectural Quality Management Ordinance Chapter, the provisions of sections 25-33 the responsibilities and obligations of the quality of the construction unit and relevant administrative departments they regulatory, quality of housing problem persists. fulfill its obligations as they did not in strict accordance with the law, it is necessary to enhance their awareness of the law.

3, to strengthen the regulatory role of the government departments. Residential construction quality, relationship to the vital interests of the masses of the people and life and property safety, relationship to live in the home, live in peace and the effective implementation of the policy. "National People's Congress and Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference "livelihood issues have repeatedly mentioned, is also the focus of community discussion. Therefore, the Government should step up publicity efforts, the introduction of specific policies to improve the quality of housing safety vigilance.

Strengthen the supervisory role of the community. Sunshine is the best preservative that some people do not believe that the law, which will put any of some people know to pick up the legal weapons to protect their own interests, but did not stick down, so we must have not only the awareness of the law to protect their own interests but also the courage to insist on the fight against the violations.

V. Conclusion Throughout Right now, the quality of housing safety problem is clearly widespread, also a lot of the provisions of the law on this issue, the relevant departments of the party and the government are quite concerned about this issue, we believe that the continuous efforts by all parties, this will be able to solve the problem. every one of us to live in a society, we all should be a force to solve, in particular, is a hot issue for social problems, especially close to the problems of their own lives, the vital interests of the issues behind problem, we must never go uncovered to explore as a legal professional students is this general obligation, legal expertise to solve the problem for the community to offer a little of their own force.
