to pay compensation if the obligor is in breach of his undertaking, whether the

Chapter Nine
Dividing and Merging
Article (16)
If the dominant Land Unit is divided up, the right of easement shall remain in
existence in favour of each part of it, provided that that does not increase the
burden to the servient Land Unit. However, if the right benefits only some of
such parts, the owner of the servient Land Unit may apply to the Department
for the termination of the right in respect of the other parts.
Article (17)
If the servient Land Unit is divided up, the right of easement shall remain in
existence over each part of it. However, if the right is not in fact used over
some of such parts, and it is not possible to use it over those parts, the owner
of each part thereof may apply to the Department, in accordance with the
provisions of this Law, for the termination of the right in respect of his part.
Article (18)
Easement rights cease to exist by the acquisition of the dominant and servient
Land Units by the same owner.
Article (19)
If a Land Unit which is encumbered by an accessory Right over Land is
divided into two or more Land Units, then each such new Land Unit will be
encumbered by the whole accessory Right over Land. The new owners may
agree with the beneficiary of the accessory Right over Land for the division of
it in such way so that each new Land Unit will be encumbered by only part of
it, to be determined by mutual consent.
Article (20)
If two Land Units merge and one of them is encumbered by an accessory
Right over Land while the other is not, then the accessory Right over Land
shall extend on the whole of the new Land Unit without the approval of the
merger by the beneficiary of the accessory Right over Land. However, if each
of the two Land Units is encumbered by an independent accessory Right over
Land, then the beneficiary of each such accessory Right over Land must
approve the merger.
Article (21)
Any alteration in the Land Unit by dividing or merging shall be registered in
the Land Register.
Chapter Ten

The Department shall issue documents relating to Rights over Land on the
basis of the actual records of the Land Register.

record in the Land Register to be supplemented by records stating the names
of the owners of the apartments, stories and common parts.
Article (24)
(1) Ownership documents mentioned in Article (22) of this Law are
conclusive evidence of the Rights over Land contained therein.
(2) In the Land Unit record shall be set out any conditions, promises or
restrictions concerning Rights over Land and other obligations.
Chapter Eleven
Final Provisions
Article (25)
Provisions of the Federal Civil Transactions Law No. 5/1985 and its
amendments shall apply to all matters not provided for by this Law.
