The decision to waive penalties for building violations in rural Egypt will help more than 1.5 million families who have applied for waivers, making up 61% of the total applicants.
Egypt has agreed to accept all requests submitted by citizens to waive penalties for building violations in rural areas. This will resolve a slew of residential disputes and rid many of financial burdens brought on by these unresolved violations. The decision will help streamline the delivery of utilities from the government to Egyptians in the countryside within the framework of the ‘Haya Karima’ presidential initiative.
This decision does not apply to buildings on state property lands, unless the applicant for the waiver signs a declaration stating that concerned government agencies are entitled to take legal measures within a three year period if the documents submitted do not reflect the construction on the ground.
