Do I need to pay zakah on my two houses and two lands?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
I have some doubts about zakah, kindly advice: I have 2 houses, one I use for my family and ground floor given to rent to my sister. Another house my mother stays in ground floor and first floor given to another sister for nominal rent. Is zakah wajib on these houses? Apart from this I have 2 lands which I purchased in the intention to sale but not able to sale so far. If I have to pay the zakah which value I have to consider for zakah: purchased value, market value or the value which I intent to sale.


(Fatwa: 1426/L=531/TL=1433)

Zakah is not wajib on the value of both the houses; however zakah shall be wajib on the rent provided the conditions which make zakah wajib are available with you. Zakah also shall be wajib on both the plots (other than the house) which you bought with the intention of selling and till now your intention is the same. The current market value shall be considered for calculation of zakah. 2.5% zakah should be paid as per the current market rate.
