(Housing) Illegal sale of tenancies
|About illegal selling of tenancies in rental apartments: 임대아파트 불법 거래에 서민은 '두 번' 운다 (Ohmynews). (It’s the sŏmin who are the victims in these schemes.)|
There is this huge apartment area somewhere in the Seoul metropolitan area. The rental apartments are allotted for cheap rental prices with a low deposit: for a 15 p’yŏng apartment the Housing Corporation price is 14 million won (11 000 €) deposit and a 89 000 won (71 €; really this cheap?) monthly rent and for a 19 p’yŏng apartment 20 million won (16 000 €) deposit and 150 000 won (120 €) monthly rent. Checking a web site of a realtor, the same places are being rented for a way higher prices, 250-300 000 won a month + 20 million deposit, or 400 000 won a month with a lower 1 million deposit.
19평형 A타입은 보증금 2000만 원에 월 25만∼35만 원도 있고 보증금을 1000만 원으로 낮추면서 월세는 40만 원을 받는 매물도 비일비재하다. 그러나 주택공사는 이아파트에 대해 15평형은 보증금 1400만 원에 월 8만9000원, 19평형은 보증금 2000만 원에 월15만 원 선에 공급한 상태다.Transferring the allocation to another person is possible only with certain conditions, like the transfer of job, emigration, divorce, military service; the original occupant is able to retain the allocation right, and the new occupant pays only the designed rent. But now these allocations are being sold; realtor confirms that it’s the people who originally were allotted the rental apartments that are doing the re-renting.
그렇다면 이렇게 임대아파트의 불법 거래가 공공연하게 이뤄지는 까닭은 무엇일까? 먼저 임대아파트가 임차를 하거나 재테크 투자로 적격이기 때문이다.So it’s good for the legal occupant to illegally rent the place again for a higher price, and good for the new occupant as the deposit in the Housing Corporation apartments is markedly lower than in the private ones.
