Need a Conveyancing Lawyer in Dubai?

  • Posted on

According to the Khaleej Times:

“The property market began the year on a very high note as Dubai recorded 5,797 sales transactions worth Dh16.69 billion last month. 

It looks like 2022 will continue on an upward trajectory when it comes to sales volumes and price increase in prime, popular areas”.

Many expats and international investors that are selling property are now faced with whether to undertake the sale on their own or whether to appoint a law firm providing professional conveyancing services.

There are pros and cons to a decision like this. 

Since the buying and selling of a property is most likely the most significant asset you will deal with in your lifetime, it is worth careful consideration.

Selling Property, Yourself

If you sell your property, you will save on conveyancing fees.

Saving on fees means you will need to handle all legal and administrative aspects of the sale yourself.

Aspects such as legal compliance with UAE government legislation, title transfers, dealing with payments for a host of fees which are different to your home country laws is a challenge.

Selling a property in a foreign country is incredibly overwhelming due to local laws and regulations as well as the language barriers that exist.

Appointing a Conveyancing Lawyer

On the other hand, if you decide to appoint a professional law firm with a highly specialized conveyancing team, the process will be much more efficient.

You will save yourself time.

The Conveyancing team will undertake the stress and will handle the complete transaction until transfer of title deed.

You will have peace of mind that your transaction is legitimate, and your paperwork is all in order.

You will also be advised to have your asset protected with a Will in the UAE or a Foundation in the UAE – DIFC/ RAK ICC.

If you are abroad, the team can undertake the entire transaction with a Power of Attorney in place.
