WATCH: Buying a House in Qatar
Why rent when you can own! Did you know that expats can actually buy houses in Qatar?
Expats are actually allowed to purchase real estate properties in Qatar. Freehold ownership is allowed in areas such as The Pearl, West Bay, and the Al Khor Resort project. A long-term lease of 99 YEARS is also allowed in areas including Msheireb, Bin Mahmoud, Al Sadd, and Lusail.
It is best to consult with the Ministry of Justice’s Real Estate Registration Department before making any major property purchasing decisions.
