The Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development issued a notice recently to publicly solicit opinions on the "Regulations on Housing Leasing and Sales Management (Draft for Comment)".As the first regulation in China specifically targeting housing leasing and sales, the regulations have made preliminary and detailed regulations on housing leasing, housing sales, real estate brokerage services, supervision and management, and legal responsibilities. The aim is to “establish a housing system that purchases rents and rents, and regulates housing. Leasing and selling behaviors protect the legitimate rights and interests of the parties and ensure the security of transactions."
Accelerating the construction of housing security and supply system is an important task to meet the basic housing needs of the people and achieve the goal of all people living and living. It is an inevitable requirement for promoting social fairness and justice and ensuring that the people share the fruits of reform and development.Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core has attached great importance to the housing problem of the people and has continuously taken new measures.At the eleventh meeting of the Central Financial and Economic Leading Group, General Secretary Xi called for the promotion of economic structural reforms, focusing on outstanding issues, grasping key points, resolving real estate inventories, and promoting the sustainable development of the real estate industry;At the fourteenth meeting, General Secretary Xi pointed out that “it is necessary to accurately grasp the housing property of the housing to meet the housing needs of the new citizens. The main direction is to establish a housing system with both rent and rent, and to meet the multi-level needs of the market. ";At the fifteenth meeting, General Secretary Xi emphasized that it is necessary to fully consider the characteristics of the real estate market, and firmly grasp the positioning of “the house is used for living, not for speculation”, and in-depth study of the long-term mechanism combining short-term and long-term Basic institutional arrangements.The General Secretary’s series of important instructions provide us with a deeper understanding of the reform of the housing system and the continued healthy and orderly development of the real estate market.
Implementing the purchase and lease simultaneously, cultivating and developing the housing rental market is an important part of deepening the reform of the housing system and an important way to achieve the goal of urban residents living in housing.In 2016, the General Office of the State Council issued the “Several Opinions on Accelerating the Cultivation and Development of the Housing Leasing Market”, clarifying that “by 2020, the housing leasing market system with diversified supply entities, standardized operating services and stable leasing relations will be basically formed. The public rental housing security system that promotes fairness and sustainability basically forms a housing lease regulation system with clear market rules, strong government supervision, and sufficient rights and interests to promote the goal of urban residents living and living.Promoting housing leasing and sales management from the legislative level is an embodiment of comprehensively implementing the spirit of the Party Central Committee's decision-making and the important speech of General Secretary Xi, and will provide effective legal support and support for the implementation of the requirements and the realization of the three "basic formations".
The key to deepening the reform of the housing system is to build a housing supply system that provides basic guarantees based on the government and meets multiple levels of demand based on the market.On the one hand, we must adhere to the direction of market-oriented reform, fully stimulate market vitality, encourage the development of large-scale, professional housing leasing enterprises, support housing leasing companies to raise housing through multiple channels through leasing, purchase, etc., and support individuals and units to entrust housing Long-term operation for housing leasing companies;On the other hand, governments at all levels should strengthen their safeguard functions, deal with the relationship between the government's provision of public services and marketization, the relationship between the economic functions and social functions of housing development, the need and possible relationships, housing security and the prevention of welfare traps. In the face of housing difficulties due to unsuitable labor skills, inadequate employment, and low income levels, the government must “repair the position” to provide basic housing security for the needy.
To deepen the reform of the housing system, we must highlight the guiding role of policies and form a long-term mechanism and basic institutional arrangements combining short-term and long-term.The "Draft for Comment" has clearly defined the various entities involved in the housing leasing and sales market, which is conducive to the better establishment of the lending and sales market liquidity mechanism. At the same time, we must improve the housing support policy, pay attention to the policy support, orientation, and role, comprehensively apply preferential policies such as finance, taxation, and land, mobilize the polarity and initiative of all parties, and guide enterprises and other institutions to participate in the construction of public rental housing. Operation, actively explore the establishment of non-profit institutions to participate in the construction and operation management of affordable housing, and form a situation of joint participation in all aspects; to further strengthen the government's regulatory functions, regulate housing leasing, sales and real estate brokerage services, strengthen the institutions and The legal liability of employees, effectively protect the legitimate rights and interests of the parties, and ensure the security of transactions. By improving the package of policies, guiding investment behavior, rationally guiding expectations, adjusting and optimizing the medium- and long-term supply system, and realizing the dynamic balance of the real estate market.
General Secretary Xi Jinping solemnly declared: "We must listen to the voice of the people at all times, respond to the people's expectations, ensure the equal participation of the people, equal rights to develop, safeguard social fairness and justice, learn to teach, work hard, get sick, and be old.
