Dubai Land Department’s fresh approach to real estate transactions
Dubai Land Department introduced a new system in May to make it convenient for property owners and sellers. Wherein property buyers and sellers can carry out transactions remotely.
This system allows direct transactions between the sellers and buyers via audio-visual communication.
This year alone, Dubai Land Department, along with the Real Estate Trustee unit, processed more than 3000 transactions.
Mr.Azizi said, “Despite the post-co-vid anxiety, the property market in Dubai has recorded more transactions this year, which is very encouraging and motivating for entrepreneurs like us.
And this is, due to the government’s initiative, to simplify real estate operations. For example, earlier, we have to visit, Dubai Land Department’s office in Deira to buy a home in Dubai, and due to the crowd present there, you have to wait in a queue to book a house in Dubai. Now, all you have to do is click the link DLD’s officials send for a video call, and after the video call. You can complete your property transaction and own that villa or apartment”.
Here go the steps for buying or selling a house in Dubai remotely:
Mr.Muhammad added further, “If I explain it also, you can be anywhere in the world and browse the sale of properties or properties for sale in Dubai:
1) After you find a house for sale in Dubai online
2) The next step would be to contact the real estate agent.
3)After that, the real estate agent will liaise. With an office in the land department to check for availability.
4) If an approved property, the official from DLD, will send you a video calling link.
5) Both of you will meet virtually. On a video call and congratulations, you are now a property owner in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates”.
6) Also, you can sell your home in Dubai. For instance, due to post-covid travel restrictions, if you get stuck in some other country and cannot travel to the UAE. Real estate authorities here offer their support by making it convenient for homeowners to sell their properties. Even if they are staying in the United Kingdom or any other place.
This is an exciting move, from the government, which can be really useful. As the world is seeing, remarkable changes, post covid, and online marketing, and e-commerce businesses are in”.
More and More people are searching online for buying homes.
“The current property market emphasizes more on marketing properties online. So we would like to focus more on digital marketing. Still, we also believe that keeping in touch with our clients and listening to their problems and offering solutions. And approaching them one on one basis has been our motto. And will remain as our forte in the future,” concluded Mr. Muhammad.
