Saudi men with multiple wives get house grant priority
Applicants who applied more than two years ago will be transferred to the new programs the Ministry of Housing have enacted
The laws and regulations for government housing give preference to citizens who have more than one wife, Al-Eqtisadiah daily reported.
Applicants for government housing can now note in their application that they have more than one wife, for which they are granted more points, which increases their chances of obtaining a housing grant.
A source in the Real Estate Development Fund said all people who applied more than two years ago will be transferred to the new programs the Ministry of Housing has enacted. Citizens who have applied to the fund and have a legal deed to their land will be given the choice to remain with the fund or transfer their application to the Ministry of Housing.
The Ministry of Housing’s regulations allow couples who have one or more children to apply for housing if their male children are unmarried and younger than 25 or if they have unmarried girls.
In addition, two or more siblings whose parents have died can also apply for housing, provided that the male brother is unmarried and less than 25 years old.
