On Saturday, 13th July 2019 the Dubai Land Department (DLD) announced the launch of a new real estate initiative known as ‘Real Estate Lawyer’ in partnership with Al Tamimi & Company (Al Tamimi). The agreement outlining the details of the initiative was drafted to facilitate growth in the real estate market by providing greater support for real estate investors and encouraging further foreign investor participation in the Emirate. The initiative has been designed to increase transparency, streamline real estate transaction processes, reduce transaction time, and facilitate strategic partnerships between public and private sectors.
The Real Estate Lawyer will encourage further growth and investment into Dubai’s real estate market, and Al Tamimi & Company are the first law firm certified by the DLD to provide services for the benefit of all interested parties.
Services offered: The launch of this initiative will enable Al Tamimi to offer additional services to clients of the firm, whether in their capacity as a seller, buyer, developer, investor or lender.
