In Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, three years after the death of widowed old lady Su Meiyun, suddenly a million Yuan worth of inheritance emerged, more surprisingly, half of the estate is given to the neighbor Xu Huiming, what is going on?

 

Xu Huiming and Su Meiyun have been neighbors in a village for decades. Su widowed early and childlessly, her nephew was far away in another city, and she was not willing to leave her hometown with her old age, so she had been living alone. Because Xu was living next door, he often helped the old lady with what he could.

 

In the early 1990s, Xu Huiming's family repaired their house, seeing the Su's house had partially collapsed in disrepair, Xu’s family offered Su a room in their own home, until the demolition of Xu’s family house in 2008. Then he paid for Su’s house rental in the village and visited her quite often. 

 

Xu Huiming said: "We all see Aunt Su as a member of the family." So Su and the Xu family got along like relatives, decades as a day.

 

During this period, the government organized a land registration, because Su's house has already collapsed, and the village has been demolishing and rebuilding, so for various reasons, Su became a houseless household. As she gets older, her movements become more and more inconvenient, and in 2012 she became increasingly infirm and ill and required special care. After discussion, Xu Huiming and the village party branch secretary Hong Qiuguo sent Su to the nursing home to live in her old age, the cost of the nursing home was also paid by Xu Huiming out of his own pocket.


Hong Qiuguo said: "In accordance with the provisions of the nursing home, the elderly should be sent by immediate family members, but since Su did not have relatives, she was sent by the Xu." Su also had a lot of trust in Xu, and all her errands were run by him. If there was something in the nursing home that needed him to come, Xu was also on call 24/7, his attitude towards the old lady was always impeccable."

 

In 2016, the 92-year-old Su died. Xu Huiming prepared the ceremony and bought a cemetery in accordance with local customs. As a lonely elderly without a house in the village, Su applied for 80 square meters of the homestead for housing construction. Surprisingly, the homestead was approved in 2017, a year after Su's death. Because Su had been supported by Xu Huiming before her death, the village did not know how to deal with this home base for a while. Things were laid aside.

 

At the beginning of this year, the area of the homestead Su applied for faced demolition, owners can get millions of Yuan of demolition compensation. Now, what to do with Su’s million-Yuan demolition?

 

Hong Qiuguo said, "Su and Xu had an agreement while she was still alive, they agreed that Su i's life support are all responsibility of Xu, all the costs were also borne by Xu. All her property after her death would be inherited by Xu." But at that time, to Su's name there was only land-lost farmer’s old-age insurance, plus, neither of the two sides nad a strong legal awareness: Xu did not take this agreement seriously and Su only arranged the relevant matters but didn’t actually sign the arrangement.

"We all think the money should be given to Xu, after all, he had been taking care of Su for 30 years. However, because Xu is not a legal heir, and there is no legal document, he cannot inherit directly. Therefore, with the suggestion of Hong Qiuguo, after consulting the relevant departments, Xu Huiming decided to file an inheritance lawsuit with the Jiangbei Court, which shall be dealt with in accordance with the law.

 

The Ningbo Jiangbei Court accepted the case and mediated it on-site in the Shandong village of Cicheng. Upon inquiry and investigation, the judge finally confirmed the conciliation agreement reached by the parties.

 

Zhang Haixuan, a judge at the Jiangbei District People's Court in Ningbo, said, "Su's homestead belongs to an uninitiated and unaccompanied heritage, which, in accordance with the provisions, should be owned collectively. At the same time, however, the law also provides that the person other than the heirs who supported the ancestor or ancestress may have their share of appropriate inheritances".

 

Zhang Haixuan explained: "Xu took care of Su for more than 30 years, the time span is rather long, it is not easy, and such behavior should be praised. It is in accordance with the provisions of the major support circumstances in the law so that Xu inherited half of the estate. "

 

Su Meiyun's nephew, Su Weiju, agrees with the verdict. On the morning of 22 October, in the court's testimony, the village committee distributed the property of the elderly Su Meiyun; Xu Huiming is now working in a corporate as a doorman. When talking about his care for the elderly neighbor, he said, the old lady had nothing, as a neighbor if he hadn’t taken care of her, then who would? As for the old lady later would accidentally own this home base demolition money, he did not see that coming, also did not think about it.

 

The sentimental deeds of Xu Huiming taking care of Su touched many netizens, who lined up to praise: "well-deserved, distant relatives are not as admirable as near neighbors" "China's good neighbors, there are genuine virtues in the world" ...
