Community, regulations, bylaws and the strategies to enforce them are for the benefit of everyone in the community. Overseeing a community presents its challenges. One of which is how to manage residents so that they can co-exist successfully and in harmony. A thriving community needs a set of rules for the benefit of owners and residents.
We create an environment in which everyone can maximise their enjoyment of their homes with the various common areas and utilize the property facilities.
We believe community Regulation, by-laws enforcement is a key aspect of upholding property values over the long term.
With time and resident turnaround, there is a regular deficit in Regulation, by-laws awareness, and so we must impart this knowledge and make it accessible.
We draft governance documentation and community Regulations, based on our extensive experience, and then tailor it to the specific community.
Upon completion of the project and while owners receiving their keys we provide them with full owners’ handover kit that includes all rules and regulations for the briefing of it, and we don’t just set rules and leave everyone to it. One of our key strengths is ensuring those Regulation are upheld voluntarily and we have several strategies to do it
Thoughtful signage – placed throughout our communities at key locations to help residents familiarize themselves with certain practices and common area rules.
Campaigns and posters – to educate residents about any rules and current issues pertinent to the community.
Flyers – issued to residents out in the community, who might be unaware of the rules – Related to residents’ domestic helpers, nannies.
Events – organize fun events centered around the issues to gain resident participation and awareness.
One of our key strengths is our ability to enforce the rules when residents breach them or cause discomfort to others.
We have a very stringent process to address the situation – by issuing a Notice of Violation – a formal citation that a community Regulation, bylaws, procedure or permit condition has been infringed. There are two stages to the process:
We also develop and uphold a set of architectural guidelines for the installation of exterior attachments for property enhancements.
There are also several deterrents in place to ensure every homeowner pays their service fee in full and on time. We take the following action in the event of non-payment:
Denial of services including non-issuance of permits, clearance for transfer of property, access cards, garbage collection, etc

The real estate sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain has been a strong contributor to its economic growth over the years. The sector has been segmented into Buying and leasing markets, while the leasing segment is heavily dependent on the expat population. Although the leasing segment has faced few challenges due to varied factors including Covid – 19, market instability and expats leaving in great uncertainty resulting in tenants hesitating to commit to long-term leasing contracts during the mid-2020. On the other hand, it did create a great opportunity for luxury properties that offers luxury lifestyle, high standards of safety and security with world-class amenities due to the shift of workplace as many started working from home and these amenities become essentials to people needs. Moreover, students studying online has created a demand for luxurious properties with world-class amenities that offers excellent Wi-Fi services, a business center and amenities that provide good space for tenants to function from home. With global trade and oil demand picking up and other important services resuming to normal, the economic growth is expected to rebound in 2021 which in turn leading to an increase on investment activities in the real estate market. While Bahrain remains the best place for expatriates to work and live in the Middle East, even as it dropped to seventh place globally from being on top of the list.
