Property Rights Index in Bahrain compared to Middle East
Bahrain: Property rights index
A subcomponent of the Index of Economic Freedom, the property rights index measures the degree to which a countrys laws protect private property rights, and the degree to which its government enforces those laws.
Higher scores are more desirable, i.e. property rights are better protected. Scores are from 0 to 100.
The index also assesses the likelihood that private property will be expropriated and analyzes the independence of the judiciary, the existence of corruption within the judiciary, and the ability of individuals and businesses to enforce contracts.
The Global Property Guide considers protection of property rights as a significant factor affecting the desirability of a residential real estate investment.
Bahrain does not publish official house price statistics. Good general economics statistics are available from the Central Bank of Bahrain. The site AME Info has up-to-date news on real estate, as well as on finance and economy.
