Property Will

The DIFC Wills and Probate Registry ( the ‘Registry’) provides an online facility that enables eligible persons to complete and submit for registration a DIFC Will which is specific to their real estate property only. This ‘Property Will’ can encompass up to five real estate properties (or a share in up to five real estate properties) that are situated in either the Emirate of Dubai or Ras Al Khaimah. The online facility referred to as the ‘Property Will Portal’ is only available via this website. A Property Will can be registered by appointment at the Registry or the Virtual Registry.

Step 2. Consider Legal Advice

Your DIFC Will is an extremely important document and you are strongly advised to consider taking legal advice in its preparation. The Registry Rules set down certain minimum requirements that must be met for a Will to be registerable and if these are not met, your Will would be unenforceable. To help you find a suitable lawyer, the Registry publishes a list of legal practitioners that have met certain minimum standards in relation to their knowledge of the Registry Rules and in relation to drafting DIFC Wills.
