Property scams warning

Investors and people planning to purchase plots of land have been urged to comply with legal provisions to avoid falling victims of property scams.

The Urban Planning and Development Authority warned against dealing with companies or individuals who sell plots without official accreditation for their plans.

“Some property dealers sell plots cheaper than the market price only to ensure speedy transactions, leaving buyers struggling with unauthorised layouts,” it said. Such blueprints may not comply with urban regulations and municipal categorisation – making it difficult for buyers to obtain permits and start construction.

The authority said it is the sole entity which is legally mandated to draw up real estate blueprints for towns and villages across Bahrain and to develop urban areas into residential, investment or service-only categories.

All potential buyers and investors were urged to report to the UPDA customers’ service and ensure data on plots are correct and complaint with the law.
