Bahrain’s Cabinet has approved an amendment to the GCC National Real Estate Ownership Law. Bahrain Decree-Law No. 40/1999 regulates the buying and selling of real estate and land in the Kingdom. Under the amendment, GCC owners may dispose of their property through a will or inheritance, providing it has been approved by the Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments Minister and in the regions specified by the High Urban Planning Committee. It has now been referred to the Council of Representatives to consider.
