1. Yes we can actually make a claim for it, however our distant relatives now technically “own” it because they were the last people to inhabit them. They aren’t doing so well so were not going to try and take away one of the few things they have stake to. If I wanted to live there for a while I doubt they would care.
2. Some of the units are somewhat livable however barely. If you take a look most of the larger units have a open ceiling for “feng shui” and also for catching water. The summers are pretty hot and there are insects everywhere and the winters can get cold enough for snow. Some of the homes have been retrofitted with electricity however its still pretty much like living in a cave.
3. The whole village is built from stone so restoration is a possibility. Although many of the buildings are considered condemned the local government is going to start and to restore some of the units and try and make it a tourist attraction in the future.
