Drawing Statements

 As the prerequisite for applying for a determination, the project initiator draws a land statement and property statement, which basically need to be signed by the right holders with their seals affixed thereon. If the right holders have any objection to the content of the statements, they may state it in the statements. In the absence of such objection, the content of the statements is presumed to be true.

【Commentary】 Special provisions for the procedure for drawing statements

 If there are more than 100 persons who hold rights on the land subject to expropriation and whose estimated amount of compensation is not more than 10,000 yen, the project initiator may give public notice of and make available for public inspection the land statement and property statement in the municipality where the land is located, instead of having these statements signed by all right holders with their seals affixed thereon.
 In this case, the right holders may submit an objection in writing to the project initiator.
