Accordingly, there will be five main problems that need to be resolved during the legal framework development for officetel:

1. The exact concept of officetel and its function is the stay combined office or residence combined office.

2. Ownership of officetel products is 50 years or long-term

3. It should be clearly defined the investor who is allowed to construct officetel on the planned land for housing purpose or planned land with mixed function.

4. If this type is determined as real estate for residential purposes, the investor shall pay other land use fee.

5. Officetel must have standards of separate design, electricity, water and infrastructure.

According to statistics of Cushman & Wakefield, in HCM City, there is about 40% of customers buy officetel as start-up enterprises and open representative offices, 10-15% of buyers for residence and business; the remainder is purchased for rental purposes by the investor.
