Loss of hope for hous­ing

Arab News - - KINGDOM -

The Min­istry of Hous­ing made amend­ments to the rules for the hous­ing sup­port sys­tem last week. This is seen with both keen and crit­i­cal in­ter­est. The re­al­ity is that the amend­ments did not make any dif­fer­ence in the im­prove­ment of the pro­grams sup­port­ing hous­ing in meet­ing the ad­di­tional mar­ket re­quire­ments in light of the in­creas­ing pop­u­la­tion in the King­dom. It is true that what­ever has been said about the new rules, we find el­e­ments which will have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the hous­ing sec­tor in fu­ture. At the same time, de­priv­ing peo­ple over 40 years of age from this sup­port and mak­ing a spon­sor one of the con­di­tions for avail­ing of this fa­cil­ity con­tra­dict all the pos­i­tive as­pects.
