Foreign Citizens are permitted to own 100% Property Brokerage Businesses in UAE
HLB HAMT Team
The UAE has always been on the frontier of taking on important matters that have a game-changing impact, ultimately benefiting their economic and corporate operations. The real estate sector’s commanding position in the country is set to continue, as property agents will now have full ownership of their firms in the UAE, after the withdrawal of this business activity from the “restricted list.”
The UAE, both at the federal level and in individual emirates, recently revealed the number of commercial activities in which foreign citizens can control 100% of a company and not have a UAE national partner holding a substantial share. However, property brokerage services were still classified as “restricted” and this has now been amended. The Dubai Land Department and RERA are in charge of overseeing all brokerage companies in the UAE, ensuring that rigorous transparency criteria are met.
The UAE property economy is witnessing signs of progress as people upgrade to bigger houses with outdoor amenities amid a remote working and learning trend triggered by the pandemic. The market was toned down due to a three-year oil price slump that began in 2014. Economic aid and government efforts, such as residency permits for seniors and distant workers, as well as the expansion of the 10-year golden visa programme, have also supported in improving the overall sentiment in the nation. Meanwhile, the UAE has also modified its investor visa criteria for property assets, allowing an owner of a Dh750,000 property to get a three-year visa. The previous threshold was Dh1 million for a period of two years.
This revitalizing move will have the greatest influence on Dubai’s real estate market, particularly at a time when buying and selling volume has been stocking up rapidly. As a result, there are bound to be a lot of intriguing discussions inside the realty sector in the coming days.
The real estate markets are always evolving during this challenging business climate, so hiring an expert team to stay up with the pace of change and advise you on many parts of the business are inevitable. To handle the varied requirements and financial risks that come with distinct industries, new techniques must be implemented.
