After illegal house partitions, residents in Qatar now turn to illegal floors
There has been a rise in the number of buildings with illegal floors in Qatar. This is due to the shortage of affordable housing in Qatar, that has prompted many residents to build temporary structures on rooftops of buildings, The Peninsula has reported.
According to a member from the Central Municipal Council, the number of such buildings has increased from 40 to over 100 this year. Citing the dangers of such buildings, he said most of these buildings were illegal themselves, and building structures from wood and cement blocks on their rooftops clearly lacked the safety requirements. Despite being a violation to municipal laws, these structures yet managed to get a water and electricity connection by Kahramaa, he added.
Are you aware of such buildings in your neighbourhood?
