Property and real estate law revolves around the ownership and transfer of properties between individuals and commercial entities. This includes tenancy agreements between landlords and tenants. The UAE regulates the legal aspects of property and real estate via the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) and the Dubai Land Department. It is these two bodies that oversee property law in the UAE.
