Dubai Land Department reduces real estate registration procedures to one step

The Dubai Department of Land Resources (DLD) has appointed a new team, comprising of a manager and an auditor, to work directly in the trust property registration centres. The aim of the restructure is to provide customers with a more simplified and flexible service.

This step is part of the department’s determination and commitment to streamline transactions, facilitate the early completion of real estate registrations, and curate a healthier investment climate for the real estate sector.

The service came into effect in early March 2020, with the team’s role being to provide technical support to the centres, provide customer support, simultaneously review and complete their transactions, thus achieving the slogan `complete your transaction in one step through one channel.`

“As part of our relentless efforts to provide excellent service in accordance with the highest standards applied worldwide in the field of real estate registration, we have achieved this unprecedented success by developing an easy-to-use system that is available for all customers to obtain real estate registration services and through which they can select and find the offices of trusted registration agents. These distinguished accomplishments will help strengthen Dubai’s position as world’s preferred real estate investment destination, which supports all parties in the local property market to ensure their comfort and happiness,” says Majid Saqr Al Marri, CEO of the Registration and Real Estate Services Sector at DLD

The process:

  • Starts with the sellers and buyers at the real estate registration trustee centres
  • The required and valid legal documents must be submitted for review and approval as necessary
  • DLD's fees paid via a certified bank check, as well as with the help of the trustee of the real estate registration through the payment portal
  • After completing some of the necessary procedures, the registration trustee will issue ownership to the new owner.
  • In case of any issues, the customer can register a complaint against the registration trustee centre through their website, specifying its nature and providing all other details to handle the complaint and maintain the applicant's confidentiality
