Buy residential property in Dubai

Buy a property in Dubai hassle-free — here are some factors to consider for an easy purchase experience.

  • Get a mortgage pre-approval

    If you’re looking at setting up a mortgage on your property, you need to know what value you qualify for. This is dependent on your income and the type of mortgage you want.

  • Confirm your buying purpose

    Are you looking to buy to rent as an investment or secure long-term capital appreciation as an end user? Figuring this out will help you select the type of property you wish to buy along with choosing the right location.

  • Set up a local bank account

    You'll need one during the property finalization for the payments, and after the purchasing process for other transfers.

  • Know all of the fees involved

    Ask your consultant about all the fees and charges applicable in addition to the basic property price advertised.

  • Zone in on the right property

    This will depend on: a. Whether you plan to live in your property long term b. Where do you really want to live c. What you can afford or d. What’s right for your investment.

  • Carry out a price check

    Conduct some research on prices for comparable properties in the area you’re looking to purchase so that you don't pay over the odds.

  • Figure everything you're looking for

    It's rare to find perfection, so keep to your list and don’t lose focus on what’s important. Bring a notepad to each viewing, and take photos for reference. Make a snag list to ensure all issues are addressed by the seller.

  • Get ready with the paperwork

    For an individual buyer:
    1. Passports | 2. Signed Buyer Agreement known as Form B For a company:
    1. Certificate of Incorporation
    2. Memorandum and Articles of Association
    3. Board Resolution
    4. Power of Attorney
    5. Signed Buyer Agreement known as Form B
    For an overseas company:
    1. All of the above must be attested by the UAE Embassy
    2. Signed Buyer Agreement known as Form B

  • Make an offer

    Once you have identified a property you’re interested in, submit your offer to the consultant who will then communicate your offer to the seller.

  • Wait for the offer to be accepted

    If your offer is accepted, you’ll need to submit a copy of your passport to your agent to start drawing up the buying process.

  • Thoroughly understand the terms

    Ensure you understand the commitments you're taking on prior to signing

Register the title at the Land Department

Ask your consultant when you can expect to receive the full title deed, which usually takes a few months to process. When these documents have been completed and returned by the local registry office, you will officially become a property owner in Dubai.
