Vietnam mulls opening ailing real estate market to foreign buyers
Vietnam’s Ministry of Construction has proposed that foreigners residing in the country are given more chances to buy homes in Vietnam as part of efforts to reduce inventories in real estate sector.
In a report sent to Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung late last month, the ministry proposed that organizations like foreign investment funds, banks, Vietnamese branches and representative offices of overseas companies as well as all foreigners who have a visa to the country that is valid for at least three months, are allowed to buy homes – apartments and independent houses – in Vietnam.
Diplomatic institutions, NGOs and their employees will not be allowed to purchase homes in the country, the ministry said.
It also proposed that those foreign organizations and individuals eligible for home purchase in Vietnam are allowed to buy different types of properties, including townhouses and villas with less than 500 square meters of land to apartments. These properties can be leased if their foreign owners are not living in them.
The houses can only be sold or given to 12 months after the ownership certification is granted to the foreigners.
The ministry put forth two options for individual purchasers. Under one, foreigners can buy any number of housing properties, and under the other, the number will be limited to one or two. The number of houses an organization can buy will depend on the number of foreign employees it has.
The proposal also contains two options for the duration of ownership of housing properties by foreigners. The first option will allow ownership for 50 years with the possibility of a 50-year extension, or 70 years with no extension.
It, however, mentioned no proposed change in ownership duration for foreign organizations. Under current regulations, organizations' ownership of their properties will last until their investment registration expires.
