Real Estate Law in Bangladesh 

At first let’s break down what is real estate Bangladesh before diving down towards Real Estate & Construction Law in Bangladesh . It is important to understand that Real Estate is not the same thing as personal property, and should not be confused. Personal assets include intangible assets such as investments, as well as tangible assets such as furniture and fixtures such as a dishwasher. Even renters may also claim parts of a home as personal property, provided that you have purchased and installed the property with the permission of the lessor.

What is Real Estate? 

Real estate is a property composed of land and its houses, as well as the land’s natural resources, including uncultivated flora and fauna, farmed crops and livestock, soil, and any other mineral deposits. 

 

Real Estate in Bangladesh  

Real estate is both a tangible asset and an immovable form. Definitions of real property include ground, houses and other facilities, as well as the rights to use and enjoy the land and all its amenities. Renters and leaseholders may be entitled to possess land or structures that are considered part of their house, but these rights are not, strictly speaking, considered ownership. Hence:

 

  • Real estate is real, that is, physical, land-based property and everything on it, including houses, flora and fauna and natural resources.
  • Immovable properties have three basic categories: residential, commercial and industrial.
  • Residential real estate is less costly and more viable for individuals when it comes to finance, whereas commercial real estate is more profitable and secure.
  • As an investment, real estate offers income and capital appreciation.
