Property Disputes

Land disputes are common in Bangladesh and are extremely difficult to resolve through legal channels. The majority of our requests for assistance from U.S. citizens involve property disputes.

If you are involved in commercial or property matters, be aware that the legal environment in Bangladesh is complex. Formal, regulated, and transparent land dispute mechanisms are not fully developed. Individuals and businesses cite corruption and an ineffective and painfully slow court system as serious problems.

We recommend that U.S. citizens pay special attention to this section on our Country Specific Information. Please click to visit the website http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/country/bangladesh.html
