Not only Dubai towards UAE rather. But before going to buy dubai properties, they should know some facts and figures regarding the fee ownership. Below are described some facts about the free ownership law of Dubai;

Types of ownership

There are two ownerships actually described by the government of Dubai, which are sole ownership and co-ownership.

Sole-ownership-in this type of ownership, a single person can own a buy a property in Dubai.

Co-ownership-if there is a property business run by a number of people or more then one person came together to make money, then they can buy a single property as a joint-ownership or co-ownership.

Ownership restrictions for outsiders

Any of GCC national can buy a property any where in Dubai and other Emirates. But still the outsiders are restricted to some specific areas known as free zones. There are two benefits of these free zones as:

Tax-free zone-no any business is charged any type of tax in case of income or business property.
Ownership-free zone-places in Dubai, especially in new Dubai, are considered as free zones for outsiders.

Any outsider can buy a business of any kind and run in these areas with zero-tax charges. Any person, who buys any type of property, is provided with a residential visa which is to be renewed after a period of three months. Besides from these special areas in new Dubai, the outsides are restricted to buy any property. There are no any restrictions to remain in Dubai during the period of their residential visa or to do any job there. Owners are free to live any where and if they want to does any job or not.

Remember that it is by law that the free ownership is not provided to Jews.

Loaning benefits

Your credit terms of last six months or some times one year are judged and then a loan is issued with a very low interest rate. You can take benefit of these loans by getting a loan and then paying it again to the bank through the monthly income generated from the property.
