Qatar Introduces New Law Allowing Digital Registration of Real Estate

In a move to embrace technological advancements and enhance service delivery, Qatar has introduced a new real estate registration law, facilitating digital transactions for property-related procedures.

Amer Al Ghaferi, Director of the Real Estate Registration Department at the Ministry of Justice, emphasized that Law No. (5) of 2024 enables the Real Estate Registration Department to offer its services entirely electronically. This transition aims to streamline processes for residents, foreign nationals, and the real estate industry.

Previously, services were accessible through the SAK application, necessitating visits to the Ministry of Justice headquarters for ownership transfers and other transactions. However, the new law eliminates this requirement, allowing for full digital service provision once published in the Official Gazette and supported by executive regulations.

Al Ghaferi highlighted that the initial focus will be on digitalizing real estate sale transactions, with plans to gradually introduce additional services. The forthcoming executive regulations will further define operational procedures, ensuring effective implementation.

To enhance transparency and mitigate fraudulent activities, the law mandates the prompt notation of judicial rulings on real estate pages. This measure aims to minimize disputes and ensure stakeholders are promptly informed of pertinent real estate data.
