Dubai Property Legal Matters - Wills & Inheritance

 
Are you aware that the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) is currently establishing the “DIFC Wills and Probate Registry” and implementing new succession and inheritance rules for non-Muslims with Dubai assets?

 

Did you know that even if you are a joint owner of a property
in Dubai, upon the demise of the co-owner, you will not
inherit 100% of the property?

 
The UAE Courts will adhere to Sharia law in any situation where there is no will in place. If you live or work in the U.A.E and you die without leaving a will the local Courts will examine your estate and potentially distribute it according to Sharia Law.
 
So if you live and work in Dubai or if you own property in Dubai we suggest you obtain both inheritance and guardianship advice from The Wills Specialists. TWS Legal Consultants is licensed by the Government of Dubai Legal Affairs Department, The Dubai Rulers Courts and registered with the Dubai International Financial Centre Courts Register of Legal Practitioners, employing only UK qualified Solicitors.
