Model Land Lease Regulation

The House of People’s Representatives has enacted the controversial urban land proclamation No.721-2011 on January 2011. Even though the law is a Federal law, the power of implementation through subsidiary legislation is given to Regions and city administrations. According to article 33 of the proclamation, Regions and city administrations shall have the powers and duties to issue regulations and directives necessary for the implementation of the Proclamation. This being the case, the Ministry of Urban Development and Construction has prepared a model land lease regulation two months after the issuance of the proclamation. This document was submitted for discussion mainly in Addis Ababa, Dire Dawa and some regions.

The model land lease regulation is not a binding document. However, it is expected that it will significantly affect the subsequent regulations to be issued by Regions and city administrations. (I don’t have information whether they have already issued the regulation.)

The model land lease regulation is drafted only in Amharic. (This is a typical problem of subsidiary legislations in Ethiopia.) You can get the document from the official web site of the Ministry, but I advise you not to do so. There is some annoying advertisement displayed on each page of the document, telling you that the document was converted to pdf using an inactivated version certain software. For this reason, you will not be able to read at least two articles on each page. They are totally covered by this irritating advertisement. May be someone can help the Ministry by sending a pdf converter.

I have removed all the objects from the original document and now you can download the model land lease regulation from this blog.
