[Vietnam Investment Review] Time is now to clear up property ownership overlap

 

On April 24th, Vietnam Investment Review (VIR) published an article titled “Time is now to clear up property overlap“. In the article, the media explains that The Ministry of Construction wants “gaps between the housing and land laws closed in order to boost the chances of foreigners purchasing private homes in Vietnam“.

 

VIR explains that the issue was raised during the regular Vietnam Business Forum (VBF) 2023 in the presence of Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh in March:

“European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam chairman Gabor Fluit emphasized that the delay in granting land use right certificates to foreigners has significantly affected various stakeholder

“The holder of such a certificate may have to bear the consequences if a dispute arises with the seller of the land use right certificate,” he said. “Moreover, the delay in granting certificates may also make foreign investors hesitant to invest more in the real estate market.” […]

“If there is no list of projects that prohibit foreign ownership, the competent authorities may be confused in granting or delaying the issuance of land use right certificates to foreigners,” added Fluit”
