Weekly Spotlight: New Ownership Deeds in Saudi Arabia Can be Issued Under New Real Estate Law
The new real estate ownership law in Saudi Arabia allows for an independent ownership deed for each individual unit to be issued. It also allows for associations to manage the property affairs if the number of the allocated units in one joint property is more than three to be established. The association can be a representative of the owners in the matters related to communal areas. In addition, landlords who have a deed which meets the Sharia and legal requirements can also construct buildings and allocate them into independent units and issue an ownership deed for each unit.
