According to the newspaper’s investigation YouthIn just 3 years, Alibaba Real Estate Joint Stock Company has nearly 50 projects, most concentrated in the provinces of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Dong Nai with 20,000 land products for sale, but not enough legal documents. Similarly, in another newspaper, citing sources from districts: Binh Tan, 12, Hoc Mon in Ho Chi Minh City, there are 19 public lands or land in the planning of public projects and community welfare, being blatantly sold by “land ghosts”. Leaders of District 12 also said that now in the area, there are a number of subjects who set up projects to subdivide plots to sell plots illegally! In the communes: Dong Thanh, Xuan Thoi Thuong, Nhi Binh of H.Hoc Mon, there are also many land storks who lead land buyers to land where they have absolutely no legal guarantee to sell!
Why are “earth ghosts” so rampant? First of all, let’s be frank, it’s because the authorities of the local governments are not strict. Because, no one can lay a brick, pour a sand truck or launch a road, even if it is concrete to divide the lot, that can bypass the agencies of the local government. No one can set up a tent on an open ground without being “touched” or watched by local officials. All the signs for sale of land plots in Ho Chi Minh City as well as many other provinces and cities are places that must be allowed by the government, according to the Real Estate Business Law and many other laws such as the Land Law, the Construction Law to act. No one, no citizen can blatantly sell a “bird-fighting ground”, without the consent of the government. If there are many reasons to say that they do not know or do not see, they must definitely review the effectiveness of the management of the whole local government system.
I still vividly remember the image of the eyes of two children, the children of a working couple, when the bulldozer came to try to tear down the house built with bricks and corrugated iron, they burst into tears. Only to find out, their parents knew that the house would be demolished, so they ran away, disobeying the coercive decision, locking their two young children in the house so that people would not demolish it, so that the house would exist! The bulldozer had to stop, and the people in the force had to manually demolish the house.
Also in many districts in Ho Chi Minh City, there are a series of illegal housing projects that are still “inert and old”. People buy single-storey houses with an area of 4×12 m or 4×10 m with prices ranging from VND 800 million to VND 1 billion, 4-5 years ago, but now they have not received separate ownership papers for their houses. Because, real estate traders here buy “red book” land with an area of 200-300 m2, but only get a construction permit (due to the restriction on the limit of plot separation), and then divide to build 5-6 houses for sale. So, now the land is still in the same “red book”, many houses have the same construction permit, cannot be separated to carry out the procedures for granting … “pink paper”! So, people spend their sweat and tears to buy a house, but the papers are still somewhere! Where did that problem arise? Is there any collusion between the magnates and officials at the ward, district and district levels?
Land and construction is an extremely complex and “sensitive” field, but it cannot be without strict management. And if the government still loosens up, or deliberately loosens it, one thing is for sure: never ending “ghosts”!
