The Dubai Land Department announced on Monday an initiative to give property owners free legal advice.
The authority has signed on a number of law firms to join the Legal Care Group, which is being set up to guide investors who have “genuine real estate issues”, but were dissuaded to file cases against their developers due to the court’s hefty legal fees.
Mohammed Sultan Thani, assistant director general of the Dubai Land Department, said: “The objective of this initiative is not merely to meet a need but to ensure fairness and justice is available to anyone who might have a concern which involves property, no matter their circumstances.”
“This reflects the government’s commitment to ensuring there is in place a comprehensive equitable system of legalizing ownership and property transactions.”
He added: “Now, no one is prevented from pursuing their rights merely because of the possibility they might be priced out of the legal system.”
