This year’s Ghana Property Awards Gala was held at the Banquet Hall, State House last Friday.

The Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Mr. Alban Bagbin, challenged real estate developers in the country to comply with building codes and regulations that prohibits them from building on water ways and locations earmarked for government projects.
Mr. Babgin who gave the warning in a speech read on his behalf at this year’s Ghana Property Awards, said the increasing pressure on land and demand for houses should not encourage real estate developers to make short cuts to build anywhere and anyhow.
“You are no doubt aware that the country’s real estate regulations enjoin all developers to acquire lands, register them and secure the right documents from the Lands Commission and the Land Title Registry. It is the interest of all, both real estate developers and home owners, to ensure that structures put up for human habitation receives the required approval or certification from professional bodies” he advised.
