Information on forms of real property sale
The sale of the real estate constituting the property of the municipality and letting it in perpetual usufruct takes place by means of tender organised on conditions stipulated in:
- the Act of 21 August 1997 on real estate management - Chapter 4
- the Ordinance of the Council of Ministers of 14 September 2004 on the manner and mode of conducting tenders and negotiations regarding the sale of real estate.
The sale of real estate may take the form of:
1. open oral tender
2. limited oral tender
3. open written tender
4. limited written tender
Activities related to conducting a tender and negotiations are carried out by a tender committee composed of 3-7 persons (including the chairman) appointed by the President of the City.
Oral tenders (open and limited) as well as negotiations are the most often used forms of sale applied by the City of Poznan.
Open oral tender
It is in the form of auction guaranteeing the transparency of procedure because it is based on openness and unity principles, equal access to the participation in the tender and the best possible result of the tender - a person who offers the highest price over the starting price determined by the President becomes a purchaser.
The starting price in the first tender is determined in an amount not lower than the real estate value (estimated by a certified property valuator), while in the second tender the President may determine the price in the amount lower than the real property value but not lower than 50% thereof. Entities which deposit a bid security on the indicated bank account in the stipulated amount and time limit specified in a tender notice may participate in the tender. The amount of a bid security is determined by the President. A bid security cannot be lower than 5% of the starting price and higher than 20% thereof. The increment during the auction cannot be lower than 1% of the starting price, rounded up to the nearest ten of zlotys. The tender is valid regardless of the number of participants if at least one participant offered at least one increment over the starting price. A bid security deposited by the participant who will win the tender is credited towards the price of purchasing the real estate. Bid securities deposited by other participants are returned immediately after the tender cancellation or closure, annulment or finishing with a negative result by means of transfers to bank accounts from which they were paid. The purchaser is obliged to pay the price of the real estate sale accomplished in the tender no later than on the date of notarial deed.
Limited oral tender
Limited oral tender is organised if tender conditions may be fulfilled by only a limited number of persons. The form of limited oral tender should be justified in the tender notice. The entities concerned have to submit a written application for participation, together with documents stipulated in the notice and deposit a bid security. The tender committee checks whether bidders meet tender conditions and announces the list of persons qualified for the participation in the tender. The list of persons is displayed in the seat of the office not later than one day before the established date of the tender. In the remaining scope, principles described for the limited oral tender are applied.
If the second tender finished with a negative result, the President may organise next tenders or conduct negotiations. In negotiations the price in the amount which is not lower that 40% of its value is agreed with the purchaser. Entities which pay the advance on the indicated bank account (the amount of advance cannot be lower than 5% of the starting price and higher than 20% thereof) and submit a written application for the participation in negotiations may take part in this procedure.
The application should contain:
- name, surname and address or the name or business name and seat, if the applicant is a legal person or another entity,
- date of drawing up the application,
- declaration that the applicant made himself familiar with conditions of negotiations and accepts them without any reservation,
Proposed price and the manner of its payment.
The application should be accompanied by the copy of the proof of advance payment. Negotiations may be conducted even if only one application meeting conditions stipulated in negotiations notice is submitted. An advance deposited by the participant who will win the negotiations is credited towards the price of purchasing the real estate. Advances deposited by other participants are returned immediately after the negotiations cancellation or closure, annulment or finishing with a negative result by means of transfers to bank accounts from which they were paid.
