Lee Han-soo (37), a member of the Real Estate Task Force (TF) within the Presidential Takeover Committee, is the youngest member of the task force, but is a strong ‘bitter’. He majored in regional development policy at the Graduate School of International Policy at the Korea Development Institute (KDI) and served as the 34th governor of Gyeonggi Province as a ‘real estate policy adviser’. It is also a person who was dispatched as a ‘share’. Among many experts and government dispatchers, he argued that “real estate is also a political decision” and insisted on lowering the thresholds for mortgage loan ratio (LTV) and total debt service ratio (DSR) to end-users, and carried it out.
However, in an interview with Maeil Business News on the 29th, he said that the biggest achievement of the TF was ‘collection of opinions within the transition committee for enacting the first new city special law’. This is to accelerate the reconstruction of the first new city, which is 30 years old this year, to promote a plan to quickly supply more than 100,000 households in five cities within the transition committee, and to enable the new government to receive power. Commissioner Lee said, “The first place in the 21st National Assembly to introduce a bill containing the first new city special law was Kim Eun-hye and Yoo Kyung-joon’s Office of the People’s Power, and I was involved in both bills and even led the initiative. We were able to establish a framework after reviewing provisions such as a lump-sum increase in the floor area ratio by 300%, granting up to 500% in case of a final upgrade, consideration for tenants for an increase in floor area ratio when subscribing, and an adjustment to effectively exempt safety examinations, etc. said.
Some say that the TF is going to be passive for fear of rising house prices. Regarding this, Commissioner Lee said, “In the course of the discussion, no one said that the support plan for the first new town should be delayed. He protested, “I was making the details to the extent that it had to be applied first when reconstructing.” He added, “The key to the real estate policy of the transition committee is that the transition committee will advance the establishment of the reconstruction and maintenance plan, which takes at least three years, to within one year through the master plan, according to the normal procedure,” he added. Commissioner Lee picked ‘a politician’s failure to participate in the TF’ as the most regretful thing while conducting the TF activity for about a month.
