The first floor agrees, and the sixth floor opposes? Starting this year, the two plans can "force" old houses to install elevators.

Installing elevators in old houses is the dream of tens of thousands of old community owners, especially high-rise building owners. This is also one of the key contents of the "old reform" in the next five years.

However, even such a policy of benefiting the people, which makes most people applaud, is extremely difficult to implement. According to the data, nearly 40% of the old communities that meet the conditions and have participated in the "old reform" are still pending due to disagreements between the neighbors upstairs and downstairs. In some places, the installation of elevators was even put on hold for a year.

Through the news, we should see that many old residential areas are noisy because of the installation of elevators. Even some old neighbors who had been friends upstairs and downstairs for decades broke up because they had different opinions about installing elevators. Some owners even put down harsh words: unless I don't live in this neighborhood, you won't want to install an elevator.

The renovation of old houses is in full swing. Why is there a lot of resistance when it comes to the second stage to increase the content of the elevator? We believe that there are two reasons for the disagreement between the neighbors upstairs and downstairs: on the one hand, different needs, and on the other hand, it is understandable that the benefits of installing elevators in old houses are not balanced.

The lower level (mainly the first level) is antagonistic throughout. The main reasons are summarized as follows: First, the elevator installation has visible drawbacks, which not only affects lighting, but also affects ventilation. The elevator operation will bring additional noise pollution; second, the elevator cannot be used on the first floor. Although the cost of installing the elevator cannot be paid by yourself, the cost of later maintenance of the elevator must be paid by yourself; third, the installation of the elevator is good for high-rise buildings. at the same time, they are worried that their floors will be further "devalued" after the installation of elevators ";

High floors (mainly the 6th floor) actively promote the installation of elevators, the fundamental reason is that there is a strong demand for the installation of elevators. In particular, many middle-aged and elderly residents have inconvenient legs and feet and need to climb many stairs. They really became "suspended old men". Not only that, many residents reported that every time they moved, moved heavy objects, received express delivery, and ordered takeout, they would be asked to raise prices. Many people can't stand living without an elevator for a long time. In addition, the owners of high-rise buildings also have their own calculation methods. After installing elevators in old residential areas, the disadvantages of high-rise buildings become advantages, which plays an important role in enhancing the market value of residential buildings. According to the agency, after the installation of elevators in many old residential areas, the market prices on the 5th and 6th floors have increased significantly, generally more than 15%.

Under the "cost-sharing by floor" scheme: the first floor agrees and the sixth floor opposes it.

At present, the most popular scheme for installing elevators in old residential areas is to allocate investment costs according to floors, that is, to set investment ratios reasonably according to the needs of different floors. In order to get the first floor to agree, the development of the plan usually does not require the first floor's contribution. Take the design of a residential district in Shanghai as an example: 4 households on the first floor, 0 contribution; 2 households on the second floor 2%; 2 households on the third floor contributed 8.4 percent; 4 households on the 4th floor accounted for 26%; 4 households on the 5th floor contributed 34.8 percent; 2 households on the 6th floor accounted for 29.6 percent. If the total cost of an elevator is 500000 yuan, each household on the 6th floor is 74000 yuan and each household on the 5th floor is 45000 yuan.

The plan was announced that the first floor basically agreed because it did not need to contribute money, and for the convenience of the neighbors upstairs, but the residents on the sixth floor objected, on the grounds that the cost of contributing money was too high and beyond their own scope of bearing, and only the installation of elevators was 700000, not the cost of later operation and maintenance. If all of them are counted, it may be at least 100000 yuan. This is acceptable for families with good economic conditions, but for many elderly people, it is a huge expense. Especially those who are bedridden all the year round and have chronic diseases and need to take medicine all the year round, they can do nothing at all.

As we said before, before 2020, elevator installations in many areas were put on hold due to disagreements between neighbors upstairs and downstairs. This is a helpless way. However, since 2021, this irreconcilable contradiction has finally been resolved. The two plans can "force" the old house to install elevators, and there is no need to quarrel upstairs and downstairs:

The first plan: abolish the "one-vote veto", and at the same time use actual cases to dispel the concerns of the lower floors about "devaluation"

In the old laws and regulations, it is clear that the installation of elevators in old residential areas requires the consensus of all residents before construction can start. This gives each resident a "one-vote veto", that is, if a resident does not agree, it is impossible to install an elevator. It is precisely because of this policy that many residents on the first floor oppose it to the end.

However, starting from the second half of 2020, many cities are exploring the "cancellation of one-vote veto": the original "100 per cent agreement is adjusted to 2/3 of the owners' agreement". Jinan: The original "100 per cent agreement" was adjusted to "100 per cent notice" and "2/3 owners' consensus"; Jiangsu: half of the owners agreed to implement it; Zhuhai: In February 2020, the "Guidance on Adding Elevators to Existing Residential Buildings" was issued, and the "one-vote veto" was also canceled. It is clear that owners who account for more than 2/3 and more than 2/3 of the dedicated part of the building will vote, and owners who account for more than 3/4 of the dedicated part will vote. With the consent of more than 3/4 of the owners, elevators can be installed in accordance with the law.

As we mentioned earlier, the lower floors, especially the first floor, do not agree to install elevators. The most worrying thing is the devaluation of the house. Therefore, if you want to persuade the lower floor to install elevators, you need to come up with real data to prove that the installation of elevators has no depreciation effect on the lower floor.

Beijing satellite TV field visits found that the first floor prices did not depreciate because of the installation of elevators. On the contrary, the market prices of the vast majority of houses are "rising steadily": a survey of the market prices on the first floor of 20 old residential areas with elevators found that 8 rose, 5 did not change much, and 2 did not decline.

After the elevator is installed in the old community, even the market price on the first floor can maintain a "steady rise". At the end of the day, the old town has a good base. It not only has location advantages, but also has relatively complete supporting facilities, especially first-class resources such as commerce, education, and medical care.

In the future, when implementing the elevator installation plan, these data can be listed, so as to truly seek truth from facts and completely eliminate the worries of house depreciation after installing the elevator on the first floor.

In this way, on the basis of abolishing the "one-vote veto" and using actual cases to dispel the concerns of low floors about "devaluation", it is possible to "force" the installation of elevators in old houses..

The second scheme: use the "shared elevator" scheme

The shared elevator is derived from the existing shared bicycle, shared power, and shared umbrella models. In short, the installation of elevators in old residential areas is funded by a third party, and then residents "pay by credit card". The owners of the community take the elevator free of charge, just like swiping a card to take a bus or subway. At the same time, the elevator car advertising right belongs to the third party elevator enterprise.

According to media reports, a community in Hebei Province in October last year began to adopt this model. Judging from the implementation of this model for more than half a year, this is a good win-win solution: free installation has helped residents save tens of thousands of yuan, and neighbors upstairs and downstairs no longer have to quarrel about investment, especially on the 5th floor and The owners on the 6th floor can easily save tens of thousands of yuan. Even for the daily maintenance of elevators, the annual cost is only about 4000 yuan, and each account is only 100 yuan; third-party elevator companies are not at a loss. The other two parts of the elevator are the cost of swiping the card: one is the cost of taking the elevator.

The introduction of the new regulations came with a series of new policies. It has to be said that the law serves the people, solves problems closely related to the people, and continuously improves people's happiness in life.
