The regulatory framework within which property is developed, sold and operated in Dubai is referred to collectively as the Strata Regulations. Our team of lawyers have in-depth, first-hand knowledge of the laws and the property market, helping to support our clients complete successful transactions.
The four strands of the Strata Regulations are the General Regulation, Jointly Owned Property Declaration Regulation (which governs the operation of large communities, typically referred to as Master Communities, which comprise a number of jointly owned properties), Constitution Regulation (which governs rights of owners at the building level), and the Survey Regulation (which ensures that the physical parameters of ownership are clearly defined and that the calculation of service fees is based upon an objective standard).
Our Middle East real estate and construction team acts for domestic and foreign clients on all aspects of transactions. The group is recognized as one of the leading commercial real estate practices in the market.
