Kuwait: New Decree Establishing Real Estate Broker’s Book
Kuwait’s Commerce and Industry Minister has issued a Decree establishing a Real Estate Broker’s Book. The Book will be online and is aimed at finalising the regulation of the country’s real estate sector and eliminate market manipulations. Under the Decree, the Commerce and Industry and Justice Ministries, Kuwait Municipality and the Public Authority for Civil Information will establish a database with details of any property which is being traded in terms of disputes and ownership status. Those who have obtained the relevant e-permits from the Public Authority for Civil Information will then be able to register on the e-booking system.
