People talk about 過戶, which is signing a house (and the registration) from one person's name to another. For example, in my husband's family they own three houses - the head of house of one is their dad, another is his older brother, and another is his younger sister (we're signed onto his dad's registration). The way they talk about it the ownership of the houses are technically residing with the person signed onto the head of house (I.e. if they want to do anything with the house signed under the sister they need the sister's documents and stamp).
I've just pulled out our registration (I am the keeper ) and there's nothing about the owner of the house but only the owner of the registration. But the brother's apparently on our registration, which either means that the other house is in their aunt's name or that you can be registered in two places or that title is not connected to HR at all. So I'm completely and utterly confused, and advise you to go to the HR office and double check everything.

If you were registered on her family's household registration and it was in another city altogether, you would find yourself ineligible for local benefits such as sports center usage, legal aid, aid with domestic abuse etc., while also being unable to use those found at your place of household registration. Plus your wife would actually be able to vote for someone who will represent her and the place where she lives (how's that for a radical concept?).
