What is the role of the Israel Lands Administration? Posted on November 3, 2014

The Israel Lands Administration is an entity which operates according to the Basic Law (which is a law of a higher status than an ordinary law) and its role is to manage state lands. The Administration manages the following types of land: Land owned by the State of Israel, the land owned by the Jewish National Fund and Development Authority lands. In practice, the Administration manages 93 percent of the State of Israel’s lands, constituting approximately 22 million acres. Purchase of land from the Administration is accomplished in one of the following ways:

  1. By signing a “Development Contract” with the Administration, whereby a person undertakes to build on and improve the land.
  2. Way of signing a “lease contract”, which is the case with everyone who gets “ownership” of the property already built on Administration land.
