Housing and real estate

The number of the population (70 million) and the wide area (2,345,410 km²) of DRC, are major assets to ensure investment in housing and real estate sector. We however notice overall deficits in housing estimated at 3,945,555, that is, 263,039 houses to be built per year. The needs of the city of Kinshasa are estimated at 54.4% of the overall deficit, that is, 143,092 houses to be built per year.

It stated that "the soil and subsoil belong to the State." This law was intended to bring order in the land sector.
