What is conveyancing?

The process of conveyancing is the legal transfer of property between owners. If you're buying a property, the previous owner signs it over to you, and you become the new owner, or if you're selling it, you sign it over to someone else. 

Normally, this process is divided into two stages – one is the exchange of contracts, which sets out the terms of the deal, and the other is the completion, which transfers the legal title. In Dubai, property transfers can take between three and ten weeks to complete, depending on a number of factors and usually costs AED 6,000 to AED 10,000

What is the scope of conveyancers' work?

There are a few things involved in conveyancing: 

  • Document preparation, clarification, and review - including contracts of sale and purchase (SPA) or memoranda of understanding (MOU) and powers of attorney (POA)

  • Investigatation of the property and its certificate of title, and any other relevant information

  • Calculaton of fees and taxes associated with property purchase

  • Liaison with the bank or financial institution, if the property is purchased through a mortgage, and with the developer (obtaining an NOC)  

  • Representation of your interests to government institutions, buyers, sellers, and their agents through the use of a Power of Attorney

  • Support and advice during the entire process, including ensuring secure and accurate property transfer, answering any questions and handling concerns
