There is no slowing for the real estate market in Dubai as more investors and people move into the emirate to settle and buy property in dubai. As prices touch new highs, more people are opting to buy plots to build their own homes instead of buying readymade property from real estate developers.

There are different reasons why one would buy a plot in Dubai, these include investors who want to purchase a piece of land for investment purposes, consequently selling it when prices go higher, contractors who buy plots to build a project and sell it after, or an end-user who wants to build a customised house from scratch and have the liberty of choosing the design and material that fits their preferences. Buying land in Dubai is permitted in designated freehold areas.

To know what steps are needed to buy a plot in Dubai, check the following:

Know the purpose

Know the purpose

Before you get on the purchasing journey, you need to be sure of your objectives and why you are purchasing the plot. Be it for investment purposes or to build your own dream home, you should identify the right plot in a freehold area before contacting a developer or landlord.

Signing a Memorandum of Understanding

Signing a Memorandum of Understanding

After you agree on a price and negotiate all the terms with the seller, an MoU needs to be signed between you and the seller. This is a form at the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA), which needs to be signed in the presence of a witness at the Registration Trustee Office.

Apply for NOC

Apply for NOC

To apply for an NOC, the developer will hold a meeting between all parties involved, where he can issue the NOC if there are no outstanding service charges on the property.

Transferring of plot ownership

Transferring of plot ownership

After receiving the NOC, the last step will be the transfer of ownership between the seller and the buyer at the DLD office, where several documents should be present, such as original Emirates IDs, visas, and passports, the signed MoU, the original NOC issued by the developer, and the cheque for the plot price which is payable to the seller.

Once this is done, a title deed is issued under your name, and you will become an official plot owner in Dubai.
