Kuwait: Municipality Law Amended

Alqabas, 4 February 2023: Kuwait’s Municipality has planned to increase punishments and penalties imposed on property owners who violate the Building Code by transferring their private housing into an investment property.

Based on these amendments, property owners, engineering offices, consultancy firms, engineers, or contractors who violate the building code will be fined a minimum of 100 Dinars up to 5,000 Dinars.

In all cases, the offenders must correct the violation at their own expense. In addition, the power supply will also be cut from non-compliant buildings.
