Section 50. In exercising the power of the Director-General in disposing of the land as prescribed in the provisions of this Code, the power to dispose thereof shall be carried out by means of sale or hire-purchase in accordance with the rules and procedures prescribed in the Ministerial Regulations and the Director-General shall have power to levy a fee not exceeding the rate of five percent of the disposal price. If the land is not disposed of within two years, the Director-General, by approval of the Minister, shall have power to sell such land through installments with a ten-year period.

By virtue of the provisions under paragraph one, the Director-General may, if it may think fit, divide the land into several parcels for purpose of disposal.

Section 51. In exercising power by the Director-General to dispose of the land under this Code, the person with rights in the disposable land shall come to an agreement with the competent officials as to which parcel or part of the land shall be disposable. If the agreement cannot be attained, the matter shall be referred to the Committee for decision.

Section 52. In a case where the Director-General considers appropriate to exercise power to dispose of the land, the competent officials shall notify the land rights holder at least thirty days in advance. When such time period elapses, the competent officials shall come to an agreement with the land rights holder on the price of such land. If the agreement cannot be attained, the provisions relating to the valuation of immovable property by the arbitration under the law on expropriation of immovable property shall apply mutatis mutandis.

The land price as settled or decided by the arbitration shall be the actual market price as of the date on which the competent officials have notified the land rights holder of the exercise of power to dispose of land by the Director-General.

Section 53. From the date of notification by the competent officials under Section 52, the Director-General shall have power to possess the land forthwith and the land rights holder, dependents, tenants, inhabitants, and any other persons in the land shall vacate the land within one year.

In a case where a land lease contract has been made, such contract shall be terminated on the day the competent officials notify the land rights holder of the exercise of power to dispose of land by the Director-General.

Section 54. Upon the disposal of land under the implication of this Act by means of hire-purchase or installment sale, the Director-General shall complete all allotted payments made to the land rights holder within the period as follows:
(1) five years for the disposal of land under Section 39;
(2) ten years for the disposal of land under other Sections.

Regarding the installment payments, the interest at the rate of three percent per annum of the outstanding sum owed by the buyer or hire-purchaser shall be payable to the former land rights holder.

Section 55. In case of sale or hire-purchase of land under Section 50, the Director-General shall have power to claim the restitution of the land if the buyer or hire-purchaser fails to comply with the conditions specified in the sale or hire-purchase contract, as the case may be. In claiming the restitution thereof, the right in the said land shall be vested in the Department of Lands on the day such claiming is known or ought to be known by the buyer or hire-purchaser.
