Our Partners

Interior Design

What makes a property special? For end-users wanting to make a property their home, why not consult a professional interior designer to maximize its potential and comfort. We can introduce you to companies that come highly recommended for their professionalism and cost effective furniture suites, as well as a truly bespoke service that will enrich the presentation of your property to a level of luxury and sophistication thereby making it stand out in the crowd!

Landscaping

A well thought out and beautifully landscaped garden can make all the difference to your villa. Not only will you as an occupier benefit from the enjoyment of your surroundings, but it will add to the value of your property. The right professionals will take time to understand your specific needs and make the best use of the space available. Our preferred partners can design the overall concept from sand to sanctuary or simply install a pergola.

Swimming Pools

The climate of the middle East lends itself incredibly well to an outdoor life and the luxury of a swimming pool in your garden. Not only will a pool enhance your lifestyle but it will increase the value of your property. Still, it is a significant investment to make, both in terms of cost and durability so it is important to seek the services of a reputable company. Our recommended partners can deliver traditional or custom made pools and Jacuzzis of the highest quality.

Mortgages

For most buyers, obtaining a mortgage is a determining factor when choosing a property. Whilst there are a number of finance houses which one can apply to, there are some that may be more suited to your personal circumstances than others and this is where we can help guide you directly towards these through recommended mortgage brokers. They will help you assess and understand your eligibility for borrowing and negotiate the best possible terms for you.

Conveyancing

Once a property is under offer, the buyer and vendor should also consider employing the services of a conveyancer, more particularly if the property is mortgaged. The sale process is not as one might expect in certain cases, it’s faster yet can be construed as more risky if there is a requirement for the buyer to settle the vendor’s mortgage in the course of events. We work with the most established conveyancer in the UAE who is a specialized legal practitioner also providing secure Escrow services for large deposits.

Legal

In the UAE it is not totally necessary to engage the services of a lawyer when purchasing, selling or renting property. However, those coming from more mature markets will prefer to seek the comfort of a legal representative in the transaction. Additionally, there are occasions when a dispute can involve complex legal issues. We recommend the most experienced real estate lawyers in the country who work with private clients, developers and institutions in all aspects of the industry.

Financial Services

For most buyers, obtaining a mortgage is a determining factor when choosing a property. Whilst there are a number of finance houses which one can apply to, there are some that may be more suited to your personal circumstances than others and this is where we can help guide you directly towards these through recommended mortgage brokers. They will help you assess and understand your eligibility for borrowing and negotiate the best possible terms for you.

Offshore Company Set-up

When buying a property in the UAE, one should consider an offshore company structure in which to hold the asset. In January 2011, a new law came into effect restricting the jurisdiction in which this could be done to the Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority. A poignant reason for choosing this form of ownership is to avoid complicated inheritance procedures. Also the confidentiality it provides and ability to organise assets under a manageable structure. Specialists in this area will provide a speedy and cost-effective company formation service.

Foreign Currency Exchange

If you are purchasing a property in the UAE from abroad or you keep your savings in an offshore account but in a different currency, then you should ensure that you achieve the best exchange rate. Currency specialists can often offer cheaper and faster solutions for converting your money than your own bank. Opening an account is easy and from there you can book currency in advance to lock into a particular rate and request same day payments should you need funds urgently.
