Couple in their 80s battle over $20m bungalow

An elderly couple in their 80s are battling for ownership of a bungalow worth $20 million.

Mr See Fong Mun, 85, and Madam Chan Yuen Lan, 88, have been married for 55 years and bought the house at Chancery Lane in 1983.

Although the house was bought under Madam Chan's name, her husband had paid for it and was also legally authorised to manage the property on her behalf.

Last year, Madamn Chan revoked Mr See's power of attorney and appointed her younger son and daughter to manage the property instead.

Mr See retaliated with a lawsuit, saying that his wife was only holding the property in trust for him.

He also claims that his younger son had persuaded Madam Chan to revoke his rights to manage the house.

According to him, his wife has not been well for several years and could not be in a fit position to revoke his power over the property.
