When a property owner in Dubai passes away, the inheritance process follows the Sharia law principles unless specified otherwise in a registered will. Non-Muslim expatriates can opt for their home country’s laws if a will is registered with the Dubai Courts.

Yes, non-Muslims can register a will with the Dubai Courts or the DIFC Wills Service Centre to specify how their assets should be distributed according to their wishes, avoiding the default application of Sharia law.

The required documents include the death certificate, the deceased’s will (if available), property ownership documents, a list of heirs, and identification documents for all heirs.

Currently, there are no inheritance taxes in Dubai. However, there may be administrative fees for processing the inheritance through the courts and for registering the transfer of property.

Property valuation is typically carried out by a licensed real estate appraiser to determine its market value at the time of inheritance.

The duration of the inheritance process can vary. Simple cases may be resolved in a few months, while more complex cases involving disputes or multiple jurisdictions can take longer.

Heirs can sell the inherited property once the ownership has been legally transferred to them. They must ensure that all inheritance procedures are completed and that they have the necessary legal documentation.

Expatriates should consider having a registered will in Dubai, understand the local inheritance laws, and possibly seek legal advice to navigate the inheritance process smoothly.

For personalized assistance and to ensure a hassle-free experience, our expert team is here to guide you through every step of the inheritance, death, and tax-related processes in Dubai.
