Abuse of housing law

KUWAIT: A senior official at the Public Authority for Housing Welfare said some Kuwaitis have abused the law and got married only on paper to get housing, adding they will face severe repercussions. Acting deputy general manager for supervision and information technology Ibrahim Al-Nashi said there is continued supervision and legal action has been taken towards several housing applications that were discovered through electronic links with state departments. He said the authority took measures to stop rent allowance payments to housing applicants who were given three options (apartment, house or land) and did not accept any of them. Nashi said the current fiscal year 2019/2020 will see 10,520 units distributed – 10,000 in South Sabah Al-Ahmad and 520 in Jaber Al-Ahmad. He said the authority did not give a date to hand over land to citizens in Mutlaa as this will be done in stages. – Al-Qabas
