Proposal to supplement regulations on issuance of red books for condotels and officetels
Tourist apartments (condotels), tourist villas, offices combined with accommodation (officetel)… are being proposed for a long-term red book.
At the consultation session on the draft decree amending decrees detailing the implementation of the Land Law on April 20, Ms. Hoang Thi Van Anh, Director of the Legal Department, General Department of Land said that regulations on granting Certificate of ownership (red book) for resort real estate has been added.
Accordingly, Article 32a stipulates that the owners of hotels, condotels, officetels, other works serving the purpose of accommodation and tourism, etc., who are granted a red book, must fully satisfy the conditions of the Construction Law, the Law on Construction and the Law on Construction. Real estate business.
The localities will verify the legality of the project before issuing the red book. When having a red book, the owner has the right to trade and transfer the name normally like other types of residential real estate.
According to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the addition of Article 32a aims to solve inadequacies for localities, businesses and investors. In fact, there are localities that have not yet been able to issue this red book, some have done it but it is not in accordance with the provisions of the law such as determining the type of land as residential land or land without forming residential units with a long term. long. This leads to the rights and interests of investors and recipients of ownership transfer being affected.
Assessing that the proposal to issue a red book for a condotel is a necessary solution for the market, lawyer Nguyen Duc Manh of Bizlink Law Firm suggested that there should be specific regulations to determine what a condotel project is. officetel. Vietnam currently has no specific criteria.

In case it is not suitable with the land use planning, the purpose must be changed to commercial and service land. The investor is only responsible for paying the land fee according to the commercial and service land and the buyer is granted a red book according to Article 32a.
