The Hanoi administration is planning to build a specialized website on which its urban residents can buy social housing.
Nguyen Duc Chung, chairman of the municipal People’s Committee, aired the intention at a local meeting on Tuesday.
In Vietnam, social housing is a type of accommodation constructed by the government, organizations or individuals, intended for purchase or rent by residents, especially for low-income ones.
On the portal to be created, would-be buyers can register to choose the accommodation area, consider housing information, and be held responsible for the registered purchase.
The task of supervising the properness of housing purchase lies with relevant agencies.
A chief content during the meeting was the decision which was introduced on managing the sale and rent of social housing in the capital.
Chairman Chung said the management of such activities has been lax, with the type of house buyers yet to be determined with clarity.
The spouses from one family would not be allowed to possess two social houses, he underlined.
He proposed confiscating a social building of a resident who fails to dwell in it after three months since it is transferred, except in special situations with persuasive reasons.
