Consolidation of a land plot is a case where the use rights to adjacent land parcels of one owner are combined into a common land use right. Understandably, plot consolidation is the registration of a new land use right corresponding to the new land plot made up of adjacent land plots with the original owner.
Accordingly, Circular 25/2014/TT-BTNMT, Circular 24/2014/TT-BTNMT and the Land Law 2013 of Vietnam stipulate the conditions for land parcel consolidation as follows:
- Having a LURC or being eligible to be granted a LURC as prescribed in Articles 100 and 101 of the 2013 Land Law;
- land parcels must have the same use purpose;
According to the provisions of Article 8 of Circular 25/2014/TT-BTNMT, "The land parcel is determined according to the scope of management and use of a land user or of a group of people jointly using the land or a person assigned by the state to manage land; and has the same use purpose as prescribed in Land Law. "
Therefore, the land parcel formed from the consolidation must also have the same purpose of entire area of the land parcel. If the adjacent land plots do not have the same use purpose, they must change the land use purpose and then carry out the procedures for consolidating the land parcel as prescribed.
- The land parcels must be adjacent to each other;
Article 3 of the 2013 Land Law stipulates that "Land parcel means a land area delimited by boundaries determined in the field or described in records."
Therefore, in order for the land area after the consolidation to be limited by the boundary determined in the field or described in the dossier, the land parcels that want to be consolidated must be adjacent to each other.
- The area of the land plot after consolidation must not exceed the land use limit as prescribed by law.
In addition, the use of residential land by households and individuals must be consistent with the master plan on land use, construction planning of rural residential quarters, and urban construction planning approved by state authorities as prescribed in Articles 143 and 144 of the Land Law 2013.
