The revisions would, inter alia,:
1. Give authority to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (“MLIT”) to select a agency of real estate experts (“Agency of Experts”) to verify private ratings. The specifics of this Agency of Experts scheme would be designated by a President Decree. The purpose of the revision is to have an analysis by a true “neutral.” As in most cases, the devil may be in the details.
2. Officially recognize the practice of the MLIT of delegating responsibilities to local Korean governments. These delegated responsibilities include issuing real estate registration certificates.
We will update the reader if the law passes.
