  • For self-employed or employed in there home country, individuals must have a minimum daily basis balance of AED40,000 in a personal account in the last three months to qualify for a 60% loan in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
  • There is also an option of getting a 70% mortgage; however, the requirements are much stricter, and much documentation is required.
  • The bank finances 60% of real estate value, but there should be three months’ bank statements of an individual with a balance showing 10,000 € per month. If the bank statement is approved, the bank can finance up to 2.5 million.

In Dubai, a mortgage is a loan provided by a financial institution to help individuals or businesses purchase property. The mortgage process involves finding a property, applying for a mortgage, undergoing property valuation, making a down payment, signing a mortgage agreement, registering the property, and making monthly repayments.

Rules and regulations may vary depending on various factors, and it is advisable to seek guidance from a financial advisor or to contact us.

The type of mortgage you can get in Dubai will depend on various factors, such as your income, credit score, the value of the property you want to purchase, and the policies of the financial institution you are dealing with. Typically, financial institutions in Dubai offer mortgages that can cover up to 75% of the property value, and the remaining 25% needs to be paid as a down payment. The interest rates on mortgages can vary depending on the mortgage type, the loan duration, and other factors.

Yes, non-residents can apply for a mortgage in Dubai, but the rules and regulations for non-resident mortgages may differ from those for residents. Non-resident mortgages typically require a higher down payment, and the mortgage term may be shorter than for residents. Non-residents may also need to provide additional documentation, such as a work visa or proof of income from their home country.

A mortgage is calculated based on the principal amount borrowed, the interest rate, and the mortgage term. Monthly payments are calculated using an amortization formula, which considers these factors.

Additional fees or charges may also be added to the total cost of the mortgage. Using a mortgage calculator or seeking guidance from a financial advisor like us will help you to understand the specific details of a mortgage calculation.

The cost of trade license in UAE starts from 5,750 AED. It depends on the business activities that you are going to conduct in your company. For example, if you are taking industrial trade license then there are additional charges for storage units and warehouses must applied.
