UAE’s bankruptcy law: influence on real estate

The UAE made a huge step late last year towards further raising the country’s attractiveness as a business and investment hub with the introduction of a bankruptcy law. While the law is still in its infancy, industry experts says the long-term effects of the regulation will be beneficial to various industries, including real estate.

The Federal Law 9 of 2016, or the bankruptcy law, applies to all private sector companies in the UAE, including those incorporated in free zones, except those companies incorporated in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), which have their own insolvency regimes, according to Joe Neilson, associate at Trowers & Hamlins.

In all there were Dh204 billion worth of realty transactions in the first three quarters from 52,170 deals.

Land in Dubai is proving a sought after commodity, with plot sales attracting Dh143.4 billion, achieved from 11,169 transactions.
