 More foreigners are interested in owning houses in Vietnam

Under Vietnam’s revised Law on Housing that took effect from July 2015, all foreigners who are granted a visa to the country and not entitled to privileges and diplomatic immunity are eligible to buy not only apartments but also landed property (villas and townhouses), and their home ownership rights have been significantly relaxed.

The tenure is 50-year leasehold with renewal possibility. Foreign individuals married to Vietnamese citizens are entitled to freehold tenure.

The total number of units owned by foreigners must not exceed 30% of the total units in one condominium complex, or 250 landed property units in one particular administrative ward or its equivalent.

Foreigners can buy houses from developers of residential projects on the primary market and only from foreign individual/entity owners (not from local owners) with the remaining ownership tenure (renewal possibility available upon expiry) on the secondary market, according to CBRE. Hanoitimes
