The housing committee of the parliament has requested the delay of presenting lands in new cities until the allocation requirements are displayed on them for approval, according to Al Gomhuria.
The ministry of housing has prepared a set of requirements necessary for the allocation of lands presented by draw system which was ratified by the ministry.
Requirements required that the beneficiary of this land -his wife or children- can’t have had access to another land or obtained one of those housing units established by the ministry in new cities.
Requirements also included that the beneficiary shall pay 10% of the total amount of the land as down payment on applying, and pay the rest of the amount on four equal installments in four years. Construction must take place within five years and the beneficiary is prevented from selling buildings set on this land before 10 years of receipt time.
The ministry has prepared the procedures of presenting the third draw lands, including 10 thousand piece of land, in five new cities by the middle of March.
