LONDON: Kuwait Embassy in London has reiterated its warning to citizens against purchasing agricultural lands in Britain that companies tried to sell for housing or investment purposes.

This is the second warning during one week for Kuwaiti citizens, the embassy said in a statement adding the embassy received over the past few days, hundreds of documents for ratification of purchased agricultural lands, First Secretary Mishaal Al- Mudhaf said.

He said a number of real estate companies in Kuwait and abroad have recently been offering land plots for sale for commercial and investment purposes, noting that these lots were agricultural lands. “These real estate companies are misguiding citizens claiming that these plots of lands will become of commercial and investment use in near future,” he added. Mudhaf called on the Kuwaiti citizens not to buy these lots which are not suitable for housing or investment and to be careful and verify the legal aspects of these deals before purchasing any land. —KUNA
