HÀ NỘI — Permanent Vice Chairman of Hà Nội People’s Council Nguyễn Ngọc Tuấn asked Hà Nội authorities to accelerate the issuance of “red books”, saying that the process must be free from mistakes and lawsuits that affect public rights.
Tuấn said that municipal authorities in all sectors and levels produced positive results in issuing red books, which are certificates of land-use rights and ownership of housing and associated assets.
According to Tuấn, land use right certificates so far have been granted to 96.63 per cent of qualified households and individuals.
As of March 10 this year, more than 1.3 million certificates were granted to households and individuals in residential quarters. There remain more than 252,000 land plots to deal with.
About 146,884 apartments of housing projects have received house purchase certificates, making up 82.39 per cent of total apartments sold and transferred to residents.
The city aims to complete red book issuance by the end of June this year.
However, inspections also revealed shortcomings and obstacles. Tuan urged relevant agencies to overcome obstacles to hit the target.
He asked the agencies to list cases that have not been granted certificates, especially those facing obstacles.
To accelerate the process, Hà Nội’s Department of Natural Resources and Environment proposed the municipal People’s Committee issue documents to cut down administrative procedures from 30 days to 14 days.
The department also asked the committee’s permission to continue establishing land survey documents and land management data serving modern and quick certificate application and issuance.
The committee assigned the city’s Construction Department and people’s committees at district and town levels to review old apartment buildings that have not been handed over to localities.
District and town level authorities are in charge of solving land disputes to consider the issuance of land use right certificate while imposing punishments on those who refuse to apply for land registration.
Lê Thanh Nam, director of the land registration office under Hà Nội’s Department of Natural Resources and Environment said that cases with written house purchase notes will be considered for red book issuance in the second quarter of this year.
“Red book issuance of Hà Nội is basically transparent with procedures and time being reduced to facilitate the public,” he said.
The amount of documents for the process is huge and Hà Nội had been preparing infrastructure and conditions to receive online red book applications, he said. — VNS
