Lands and Properties Sector is a service sector in RAK Municipality that deals with documentations, registration, disposition and handling of properties. Its vision is to achieve regional excellence in the provision of real estate acquisition and services. In 1958, this sector was established as the Office of Documentation and Registration of Properties at the Municipality Department. Later in 1976 due to an Amiri Decree, the office activities were separated to establish an independent service department, which are documentation, registration and transfer of properties. In 2014, by Amiri Decree No. (8), the Department was merged under Ras Al Khaimah Municipality Department as Lands and Properties Sector.
