Resettlement housing program ineffective in Hanoi

The resettlement housing program in Hanoi has been ineffective with hundreds of unused apartments, according to the capital city People’s Committee. 

A total of 1,583 apartments have been handed over to dwellers but they have not signed sale contracts and made payment. The city has also made decisions to resettle another 1,303 households but they have neither made payment nor received apartments.

Notably, 625 apartments have been left empty. Some apartment buildings have even been put into operation for more than 10 years but legal procedures have not been completed.

Citizens have moved to dwell in a total of 4,493 apartments, accounting for 36.7 percent of the total apartments that have been handed over, however, they have not been granted with home ownership certificates so far.
