NEWS WRAP: Landlord may soon have to specify purpose of rental contract.

Manama: Landlords may soon be scrutinised more closely when setting rents. A draft amended law regulating housing, commercial and industrial rents will be on the agenda of the Shura Council today.

The public amenities and environment committee approved the draft legislation and referred it to the weekly session. Under the proposed law, landlords would be required to specify the purpose of rental contract. The amendment aims to separate housing and commercial properties. A draft law submitted by the foreign affairs, defence and national security committee on drugs and psychotropic substances will also be on the agenda. It aims to criminalise attempts to lure and solicit minors. The session will also discuss two draft laws on amending the bill on reform and rehabilitation establishments and employment of the disabled.
