Iranian regime bans women from house ownership


A woman cannot own a house from the Mehr Housing Company and her husband’s name has to be registered on the house ownership papers. This is while married women were able to request to become the owner of the Mehr Housing [more than single women in the past].

In the past few weeks, many female applicants have been able to register to receive Mehr Housing but they have been faced with new reports that they have to register their homes in their husband’s names…

According to reports from the Pardis Construction Company, a large number of female applicants who had gone through many hardships to save money and transfer it to the Housing bank account, complained about this issue and even expressed their dissatisfaction to the CEO of the Mehr Housing and Pardis Construction Company.
