Freehold property refers to the type of property purchase, where the buyer owns the plot as well as the unit. He/She is the landowner and has the title deed under his name. An heir can inherit a freehold property from the title deed holder. The owner of a freehold property is entitled to lease, occupy or sell his/her property. The owner can use the property for any purpose as long as it is in accordance with the local rules and regulations.
Freehold properties were introduced here to encourage foreign investment in Dubai and the most popular freehold areas for ex-pats to purchase property, including Dubai Marina, Emirates Hills, Al Barsha, and Palm Jumeirah.
