Buying Property or House in Qatar | Everything you need to know
Buying property in Qatar

Buying property in Qatar

One of the biggest decisions when you move to a new city is deciding where to rent or buy a home.

In Doha, the decision is made easy if your intention is to buy property. Expatriates can only buy property in specific large-scale developments in Doha such as The Pearl-Qatar, West Bay Lagoon and Al Khor Resort Project. Regardless of whether a property developer claims that foreigners can legally buy property in their development, it is wise to verify this information with Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning (Baladiya) before making a commitment.

Registration of property bought by non-Qataris is done at the Office of Registration of Real Estate for non-Qatari nationals, located in the Baladiya offices in Al Sadd.
