Essential conditions when buying a property

In order to buy a property under a sound contract, the following conditions must be met:

  1. Eligibility and full satisfaction of the parties:

Parties of the contract must be eligible for the real estate sale so that they are adult with a level of awareness to understand the meaning of the contract; both will owe to the other through signing and the contract. Minors who have not reached legal age can only conclude this contract through adult legal representatives.

The consent and satisfaction of the parties to conclude such a contract must be apparent at the time of signing the contract and, a contract that does not include a statement of consent of the parties and their acceptance and will to the sale is legally rejected.

Buying a property

  1. Legality of the property

The property must be registered in the Land Registry (Tabu) to avoid loss of rights in real estate sales contracts.

  1. Clarity of the price of the property

In this case, the future sale contract is limited to him and the person who concluded the future sale contract with him.

So that the seller could sell the property to another person, and the first buyer would not have the right to claim his right.

In the case of regulating the Transaction of Real estate statement, the right of the buyer can be guaranteed to whoever can be linked to the property in the future, thus preserving the buyer's right to claim the property if the property was sold to someone else.

  1. Attendance of the contract holder in the contract of sale:
