Basements are strictly for parking purpose only
Kuwait Municipality disclosed that they will start a campaign for evacuating rented basements in residential areas in accordance with the licenses granted to them, as the basements are intended to be car parking spaces for the residents of those buildings.
Officials explained that building owners will be obliged to reallocate the basements of their buildings as car parks by the force of the law. Officials also added that the tenants can sue landlords or file complaints against them at various municipality branches if basements are rented out or used without municipal permission. “Director Ahmed AlManfouhi instructed all branches to start listing violating buildings to warn them and later check that the changes have been made in order to avoid compulsory eviction with the interior ministry’s assistance,” the sources explained.
The sources also added that growing numbers of citizens and expats have been complaining about getting parking tickets because they have no parking spaces outside their buildings.
