A Practical China Guide For Foreign Invested Enterprises Master Class
China has undergone the greatest economic transformation in the history of the world. Real Estate values are in some parts of mainland China increasing for than 30 percent in value over the course for the last 12 months. Real estate regulations vary widely across different jurisdictions and many foreigner real estate investors do not have a complete grasp of the mainland China Real Estate market . China Real estate has its own particularities, which are of utmost importance to understand to foreign Real Estate investors and in practice and for foreign invested enterprises in China who may be “thrust” into understanding Real Estate issues as a part of their China enterprise as they become like-it-or-not, “accidental China real estate investors”. Concepts such as the obligation to execute the agreement before a China public notary, compulsory registration of the China deed/land right usage/granted land right and the formal provisions to be included therein may determine the validity or voidance of the transfer of property in mainland China. China real estate taxes need to be paid at that time and in a timely manner going forward, and issues about whether foreign investors are allowed to even “purchase” property, depending is the land is China “granted” or deemed merely China “land rights usage”
A foreign investor in China who is unfamiliar with the real estate regulations of China involved may think that a title is valid if the formalities required in his or her home jurisdiction have been complied with, but in most cases this is insufficient in China and is the origin of subsequent problems and conflicts for a foreigner in China and may effect the real estate value dramatically.
