The Directorate of Real Estate Registration in Mandali, a sub-district of Diyala province on the border with Iran was reopened on Monday January 7th for the first time in 40 years.

 Haidar Sattar, member of the Mandali sub-district council said, “The Diyala administration and the local council reopened the directorate after 40 years of closure due to the repercussions of the (1980-1988) Iraq-Iran war.”

 He noted that the reopening of this crucial department was in response to calls by Mandali residents who complained that they had to “travel long hours to complete their registration paperwork.”

The reopening of this directorate will ease the burden of the people and boosts the real estate market in the area

According to Sattar, some of the government departments were transferred by the former regime to nearby Baladruz district during the war including the real estate registration directorate.

Rasim Hassan, a Mandali resident says, “People here had to travel to Baladruz to finish the paperwork related to the buying or selling of ral estates. The reopening of this directorate will ease the burden of the people and boosts the real estate market in the area.”

Mandali is Diyala’s biggest subdistrict on the Iranian border and has a mixed make-up of Kurds, Arabs and Turkmen.

The town is within the territories disputed by the Iraqi federal government and the Kurdistan regional government according to article 140 of the constitution.

Mandali was a battlefront during the 1980s’ Iraq-Iran war which forced most of its residents to flee their homes.
