Steps for selling a property in Dubai

  • Terms are agreed upon by the buyer and seller.
  • The signing of an MOU and payment of a deposit, typically 10%, are both required.
  • In order to apply for a No Objection Certificate (or “NOC”) to sell the property, the parties meet at the developer’s offices.
  • Once the developer is satisfied that any sum owed to the developer in the form of service costs has been settled in full, the developer will often issue the NOC in exchange for the payment of a fee.
  • The parties can proceed to the Dubai Land Department’s office to formally transfer ownership after the NOC is issued.
  • On the day of transfer, the Dubai Land Department will require that the purchase price be paid in the form of a manager’s check payable to the seller.
  • After all the processes are finished, the buyer will receive a new title deed.
  • The bank will need to become involved if the buyer is paying with a mortgage.
  • The buyer must pay off the seller’s mortgage in full before submitting the NOC application if the seller has a mortgage on the property. Due to this, the buyer is exposed to greater risk, which makes the deal more challenging.


Costs Associated:

In general, the following costs will be incurred when buying or selling real estate in Dubai:

  • NOC costs are paid to the developer, typically by the sale, and can range from AED 500 to AED 5,000.
  • Several developers will additionally charge the buyer a refundable deposit, which they will only release after receiving the new title deed and updating their records.
  • The commission paid to real estate agents is 2% of the buying price.
  • Transfer fees are determined at 4% of the purchase price, with an additional sum that is paid to the Dubai Land Department for administrative costs, which is currently not more than AED 5,000.
  • Mortgage registration fees are calculated and paid to the Dubai Land Department at a rate equal to 0.25% of the registered loan amount, if applicable.
  • Buyers should pay their pro rata part up front because developers require payment for their annual service charges in advance.


Documents necessary for each seller:

Individual sellers:
  • Original passport
  • Original title deed


For business sellers:
  • Original title deed.
  • Original incorporation certificate or business license
  • The articles of association and memorandum have been translated legally.
