The Dubai Land Department, DLD, recently announced the launch of the Smart Audit initiative that allows the completion of real estate transactions on the same day.
This comes as part of its tireless efforts to develop and formulate modern 10X initiatives that guarantee the smooth provision of services to its customers, ensuring their comfort. During the first week of the evening audit, more than 112 transactions were implemented, reflecting the success and popularity of this initiative.
Through this highly developed initiative, a customer may conclude any transfer transaction whether sale, grant, or mortgage on the same day, by employing the latest smart technology and qualified staff who operate remotely beyond DLD’s official working hours.
This step is expected to be widely accepted by developers, real estate brokers, landlords, government agencies, real estate management companies, and real estate registration trustee offices.
Majid Al Marri, CEO of the Real Estate Registration and Services Sector at DLD, stated, “The DLD continuously adopts the latest technology and develops the best initiatives, in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to improve governance and provide easy services to serve Dubai’s real estate market. The new initiative will further strengthen Dubai’s position as one of the smartest cities in the world by providing the largest number of services to the public.”
This initiative aims to keep pace with the rapid development of Dubai’s economy and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the DLD’s departments, especially as customers do not have to wait until the next day to complete their transactions, but can conclude them on the same day to obtain the service outputs.
Al Marri concluded, “This initiative will contribute to raising the absorptive capacity of transactions carried out by DLD’s departments, where we are now able to provide real estate transaction services through real estate registration trustee offices until the late hours of working days.”
This initiative is in line with the DLD’s strategy to position Dubai as the world’s first attractive investment environment, reducing customer visits and digitising all services and government transactions by December 2021 in line with the Dubai Paperless Strategy, as well as concluding transactions by relying on smart electronic applications to increase production capacity and increasing the capacity of DLD’s departments to accommodate the rise of number of transactions.
