KSA Approves Documentation System to Boost Real Estate Security
Saudi Arabia has approved a documentation system aimed at enhancing real estate security and raising the efficiency of judicial documentation and the reliability of documents.
During a cabinet meeting earlier this week, Minister of Justice and Chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council Dr. Walid Al-Samaani, said that the documentation system would improve real estate security, which would increase the efficiency of judicial documentation and the reliability of documents issued by the authorized bodies, including notaries public.
According to the minister, the new documentation system would transfer some of the tasks usually assumed by the courts to the notaries public, such as documenting marriage, divorce, custody, alimony, conciliation and others.
This would relieve the Judiciary from tasks that do not fall within legal disputes, Al-Samaani noted.
He added that the documentation system would support “preventive justice”, an important trend that the ministry is seeking to establish to contribute to reducing disputes and the flow of cases.
Al-Samaani thanked Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, for the Council of Ministers’ approval of the documentation system. He stressed the Kingdom’s commitment to comprehensive development at all levels within Saudi Vision 2030.
Legal expert Ayman Al-Zareer told Asharq Al-Awsat that the new system would have a positive impact on a number of vital economic sectors.
