HCM CITY — At a recent seminar to discuss the draft revised Land Law in HCM City, Ngô Thái Bình, a legal expert from the city's Law newspaper, spoke out against the current practice of requiring the names of all household members to be included in the Certificate of land use right, house ownership, and other properties.

Bình argued that this practice creates unnecessary difficulties in identifying all household members and can negatively impact determining land use rights.

Besides, current laws do not stipulate any basis to identify all household members.

He said identifying all household members is usually based on information from the household registration book.

However, the household registration book has been abandoned. Along with residents' freedom of movement and residence, he said there are still many shortcomings in identifying all household members to write their names on the certificate.

He said it should write only the name of the representative of a household on the certificate as per previous regulations.

"If the household members want to decide the land use rights, they will agree or ask the court to arbitrate," he said.

Suppose it is mandatory to write the names of all household members on the certificate, the draft law should provide a basis for identifying all household members for convenience in exercising the rights and obligations of land users, he said.

Also at the seminar, the director of the Voice of HCM City, Lê Công Đồng, said that compared with the 2013 Land Law, the authority to settle land disputes in the draft law is different.

In the 2013 land law, the settlement of land disputes was being assigned to two agencies, consisting of the People's Court and the People's Committee, he said.

However, the land disputes of households, individuals, and organisations were often very complicated, and he said the evidence to prove the land use rights was often unclear.

According to the draft law's provisions, the People's Committees of districts and provinces do not have the authority to settle land disputes. He said the authority will belong to the People’s Court of districts and provinces.

He said it would narrow the choice of the involved parties in settling land disputes and increase pressure on the court system at all levels in settling land disputes.

Therefore, he suggested that the draft law restore the settlement authority of the People's Committees of districts and provinces to reduce the pressure on the number of land dispute cases for the People’s Court.

Nguyễn Thị Tuyết Dân, from Phụ nữ thành phố Hồ Chí Minh(HCM City's Women) newspaper, suggested that the draft law should strictly implement the publication of master plans on land use and land recovery.

At the same time, it was advised to have a mechanism to strictly handle individuals, organisations and State-owned agencies that do not comply with the provisions of the law, she said.

Also on Tuesday morning, the Ninh Bình Province’s Fatherland Front Committee held a conference to collect comments on the draft law.

Lê Chí Vịnh, Chairman of the committee’s Legal Democracy Advisory Council, said the provisions of the draft needed to show that the State’s right to own land is not bound by too many administrative procedures that might hinder the State's right to own land, especially in the recovery of land.

Under the draft law, he said that for the land allocated to residential communities, the representative of a residential community would be assigned to manage the land.

“It is not enough,” he said.

Because the representative of residential communities is usually the head of the village or the head of the town. It is unstable and unprofessional, he said.

Therefore, he said it needed to assign the Chairman of the People's Committee at the grassroots level to co-manage the land.

Đỗ Việt Anh, chairman of the committee, said that the amendment of the 2013 Land Law was very necessary to meet the needs of effective management and use of natural resources and land resources for socio-economic development; overcome disputes; ensure national defence and security; ensure the lawful and legitimate rights and interests of the people; create conditions for equal and transparent access to land, and make the most of land resources.

The draft law consists of 16 chapters and 236 articles, of which 28 remain unchanged; 184 are amended and supplemented. It added 41 new articles and abolished eight.

The law compiling aims to perfect policies on land in line with developing a socialist-oriented market economy, resolving the overlapping and inconsistencies in policies and laws related to land, and solving problems arising from land use and management.

The other purpose is to strengthen land management, ensure harmonisation of rights and interests of the State, land users, and investors, as well as develop a transparent and pure real estate market.

The draft law collects comments from experts and people until the end of March 15. — VNS
