Mr. Vo Cong Luc speaks at the press conference.

In the afternoon of February 29, at a press conference on the economic and social situation in Ho Chi Minh City, organized by the City Party Committee’s Propaganda Department in coordination with the Department of Information and Communications, Mr. Vo Cong Luc, Head of the Land Management Division, Department of Natural Resources and Environment spoke about the solution for granting ownership certificates (“red books”) for apartment buildings.

About the nearly 59,000 houses that have not been granted “red books,” Mr. Vo Cong Luc said that this number is part of the list of 81,000 units in commercial housing projects in the city that have been appraised and meet the conditions for granting ownership certificates, but there are obstacles that prevent the completion of the granting process.

In principle, the procedures for granting ownership certificates to buyers in apartment projects will still be handled by the Department of Natural Resources and Environment and the Land Registration Office of Ho Chi Minh City based on the documents submitted by the project owners in accordance with their authority.

In the first two months of 2024, the Land Registration Office has granted ownership certificates for 1,486 cases and received 1,189 new cases (including the issuance of tax transfer vouchers for 825 cases, with the remaining cases being resolved).

However, during the process of handling the procedures for granting ownership certificates to project owners and subsequently to buyers in these projects, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment and other specialized departments in the city have identified and classified 10 main difficulties and obstacles.

These include the group awaiting tax payment, the group of projects that have been slow in submitting ownership certificate documents, the group of new real estate projects, the group of projects that need additional financial obligations, the group of projects with other obstacles, the group of projects under inspection, investigation, or court judgments, the group of projects with mortgages at financial institutions, the group of projects violating construction regulations, the group of projects with difficulties related to social housing obligations and resettlement housing, and the group of projects allowed to sell houses to foreigners.

To address these 10 difficulties and obstacles, the Department has proposed and received approval from the City People’s Committee to develop a plan to resolve these 10 groups of obstacles based on the categorized projects by implementing specific solutions corresponding to the issues of each group.

The City People’s Committee has established a working group, led by the Standing Committee of the City People’s Committee, with representatives from the Department of Natural Resources and Environment, the Department of Construction, relevant departments, the City Police, and the City Tax Department, to address difficulties in granting ownership certificates for commercial housing projects in the city.

The Binh Chanh District People’s Committee continues to grant “red books” for some cases within the reserved agricultural land planning

Regarding the situation where many households in Binh Chanh District have not been able to obtain property documents due to the planning of reserved agricultural land, Ms. Nguyen Thi Thao, Head of the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Binh Chanh District, said that large-scale agricultural land planning will affect the process of converting land purposes to serve individual housing construction for households and individuals in the planning area.

However, regarding the issuance of land use rights certificates, home ownership certificates, and other property rights associated with land, the Binh Chanh District People’s Committee continues to grant certificates for some cases.

Specifically, the use of land at the time of the certificate application must comply with the planning. If it does not comply, the households must have been using the land before the planning approval and the use must not violate land laws.

A representative of the Binh Chanh District People’s Committee speaks at the press conference.

Currently, the Binh Chanh District People’s Committee is implementing the land use planning for the period of 2021-2030. During the implementation process, the district directs specialized departments to cooperate with other units to review the results of the previous planning period, compile a list of projects for the 2021-2030 phase, analyze the land use needs of sectors and fields, the land use needs of the People’s Committee of communes and towns, and the development orientation of Binh Chanh District.

Based on that, proposing appropriate land use targets while ensuring compliance with the allocation criteria of Ho Chi Minh City. During this process, the Binh Chanh District People’s Committee will recommend allocation targets to ensure the needs and suitability with the current densely populated areas.
