The Cabinet approves several laws in efforts to ease real estate transactions, improve the real estate market, and set a law system for an easy transfer of property ownership, Invest-Gate reports.

The laws are to establish a strong organization system for property registration and adjustments in ownership legislation for contracts of more than twenty years old.
