DLD Designates up to 15 percent of Property Sales for Emirati Brokers

April 05, 2024

On March 31, 2024, the Dubai Land Department (DLD) announced its partnership with nine prominent developers, spanning private enterprises and government-backed entities, to allocate a particular portion of property sales in Dubai to Emirati real estate brokers. This marks a significant step towards boosting citizen involvement in the city's thriving real estate market.

Under the terms of agreements inked with industry giants such as Emaar Properties, Deyaar, Expo Dubai, DAMAC Properties, MAG, Sobha Realty, Ellington Properties, Azizi Developments, and Al Bait Al Duwaliy Real Estate Development, the DLD has committed to setting aside 10% to 15% of each developer's property sales through Emirati brokers.

The government entity has embarked on this groundbreaking initiative to bolster job opportunities for its residents and foster the growth of local talent in the property industry. The aim is to seamlessly integrate Emirati nationals into the real estate sector and push Dubai's economic growth trajectory forward.
