According to the Housing Lease Protection Act, even though it is not registered, if the lessee has completed delivery of a house and the resident registration, the lease shall take effect against the third person from the following day thereof. Any lessee who has met the requirements for opposing power and obtained the fixed date on the lease contract document, shall be entitled to receive the repayment of the deposit from the converted price of the leased house, in preference to any junior obligors and other creditors, at the time of an auction as provided by the Civil Execution Act and a public sale as prescribed by the National Tax Collection Act. The lessee shall be entitled to receive a repayment of a specified amount of the deposit in preference to other persons having the security rights in the leased house. However those provisions give rise to many problems because the Housing Lease Protection Act allows the opposing power and the right of preferential payment from the following date of fulfillment of the requirement. For the purpose of solving the problems, this study suggests that the Housing Lease Protection Act need to be amended as follows. The fixed date should be added to the requirement of opposing power and the preferential right of specified deposit repayment. In addition, the commencement of opposing power and preferential right of deposit repayment need to be taken effect from the day that the requirement is fulfilled.
