Limit scope of sale of leased national non-public use real estate in order to preserve large tracts of national land
- “The Regulations for Leased National Non-public Use Real Estate Which Shall Be Sold” was amended and announced on February 3, 2010. Starting from July 1, 2010, the scope of sale of leased sites and real estate was tightened and limited to only three conditions: construction sites or houses leased for tax deduction, construction sites with an area of under 330m2 in a municipality or under 500m2 in other administration districts, and state-owned houses on privately-owned land.
- “The Regulations for Leased National Non-public Use Real Estate Which Shall Be Sold” was again amended on September 26, 2011. Starting from the day of announcement, the scope of sale of leased sites and real estate was further limited to those located outside municipalities. Furthermore, only construction sites with a combined area with neighboring national land of under 330m2 are eligible for sale. An article excluding public construction works which remove homes and lands from the aforementioned limitations of area was added.
It avoids the suspicion of specific parties obtaining national land by leasing before purchasing, thereby circumventing the process of tendering for sale.
