Method 1:  Contact the People's Committee of the ward or commune where the land is located or the cadastral official of the ward and township where the land is located to find out who is submitting a dispute resolution application or the actual land dispute (dispute but not yet submitted).

Method 2:  Find out information through the people around or the owner, the land user of the adjacent land.

Method 3:  Contact the civil judgment enforcement agency to find out if the land parcel is related to the enforcement of the judgment to settle land disputes.

Method 4:  Apply for land information at the Office/Branch of the land registration office where the land parcel is located.

Step 1 Submit a request form according to form 01/PYC issued together with  Circular 34/2014/TT-BTNMT  at the district-level Single Window or the land registration office/branch where the land parcel is located.

Form No. 01/PYC

When receiving a valid request form, the receiving agency is obliged to:
