In the United Arab Emirates, like in some other federal states, there is no federal unified real estate register. Moreover, rules of real estate ownership, its registration and recording are different in different emirates. As a rule, the right of ownership to land and real estate objects is severable. The system of real estate data provision has a number of serious restrictions.
In Abu Dhabi, the largest emirate, the real estate register is under the jurisdiction of the Urban Planning Department and municipalities. In order to obtain extracts from the cadaster and land certificates (a request may be submitted online on the web-site of the municipal system of Abu Dhabi), the type, number and date of document issue must be specified. Search by personal data of the individual-owner is not provided.
In Dubai the real estate register is maintained by the Land Department of the emirate. However, the register is not public, and the extract from it may be obtained only upon permission of the owner of a real estate object. Given that transactions in Dubai are executed, as a rule, involving real estate agencies, they shall be pre-checked through the special register of the Real Estate Market Regulation Agency.
A principal possibility, terms and time for obtaining extracts from real estate registers of UAE shall be stipulated individually.
