The Buyer’s Guide
Purchasing a property is a major investment and if you are new to the market or don’t quite understand it, it could also be a frustrating and adverse experience.
We suggest that you consult a Unique Properties Sales Consultant before you sign any purchase contract for property, so that you understand your rights and responsibilities relating to property purchase in the UAE.
Your Sales Consultant:
Will provide you with a simple checklist of your pre-transfer duties
Proposes solutions to any problems that arise so that the process progresses without a hitch
Explains the conditions of your finance approval and will help you meet them and provides you with a breakdown of the figures you need to meet in the transfer and settlement process.
Informs you on the status of the transfer
Guarantees full coordination and attendance at your property transfer to ensure the transfer is completed
Ensures that the title deed is clear and handed over to you
Since purchasing a property is one of the biggest decisions and investments of a person’s life, it is important to understand the process.
Early in the process, you should figure out if there is existing finance on the property and which lender it’s from and then share these details with your Sales Consultant.
The amounts that need to be paid to the developer, Dubai Land Department, and real estate agency will be broken down for you in a statement provided to you by the Sales Consultant.
Your Sales Consultant will instruct you to compile all the documentation required to finalize the transfer. You must provide information that is factual and correct, and have both originals and copies created of the required documents. Inability to provide these documents in a timely manner may delay the process.
If there are any specific requirements or conditions set by your lender, make sure to tend to them a couple of weeks before the settlement date.
At least three working days before the deal is finalized, the exact amount needed for the purchase should be in your back account. Then you’ll be able to obtain Manager’s Cheques for the relevant parties, ready for the transfer day.
Since building insurance is mandatory in the UAE, the lender will be sure to include this with your mortgage.
Once the transfer is finalized a new title deed will be issued to you in your name within 24 hours. However, the bank will keep the deed until any mortgage registered against the property is paid off.
Once the property transfer is complete and the seller has received the payment, all keys and controllers will be handed over to you by the Sales Consultant.
Utilities and Services
Since most utility and service providers need to see a title deed before they set up a connection, you must present a copy. If you have taken a mortgage, you must obtain a copy from your lender. Our Sales Consultant can also acquire a copy for you, so inform them of this early on so that they can obtain it for you. Feel free to also ask how to go about connecting other services or subscriptions.
With Unique Properties, real estate is more than just a transaction: it is a promise to deliver beyond expectations.
