Freehold and Leasehold Zones

After the adoption of the Property Law in 2002, foreign citizens were given the right to lease and purchase real estate in specific zones in Dubai - Leasehold and Freehold.

Leasehold is a zone where you get the opportunity to own property on terms similar to long-term leasehold. According to the contract terms, the maximum period of property ownership is 99 years. You can do the renovation or reconstruction as per your taste. You can also generate income by subleasing the villa.

As for the villas in Freehold zones, the owners of this property have the right to fully dispose of their property. It can be passed on as inheritance, rented out, gifted, or sold.

Villa options

Currently, both ready-made and off-plan options are available on the market in the Emirates. The cost of real estate during the construction stage is approximately 30% lower compared to options that are ready for occupancy.

There are many options for this type of real estate in the Dubai market, both budget-friendly and luxury villas. As of the end of July 2023, real estate is available in exclusive communities such as DAMAC Lagoons, Sobha Hartland II, Arabian Ranches III, Dubai Hills Estate, Emirates Hills, and many others.

Almost all villas are located within closed communities such as Arabian Ranches, Cherrywoods, DAMAC Hills, Dubai Hills Estate, and others. Residents of these communities are offered a full range of services, spacious private areas with parks, running and bicycle paths, swimming pools, children's playgrounds, and more. This provides maximum privacy, and the privileged location allows for quick access to central areas of Dubai.

These communities are located along major highways, and it takes no more than 40 minutes to get to international airports or the center of the Emirates - Downtown Dubai. Owners can live in family-oriented residential areas where all the necessary infrastructure is nearby - schools, medical facilities, shopping centers, and more.
