Shahram Safai

Whether investors are looking to expand their real estate portfolio or end users are simply looking to find their ideal home, many opportunities exist in both the UAE’s off plan and secondary real estate market. However, it is critical that prospective buyers do their own homework and due diligence, have sufficient knowledge of the real estate development as well as the developer, and work with a reputable broker and lawyer who understand the UAE real estate market.


A panel of experts from Afridi & Angell, Better Homes, Dubai Land Department and  Knight Frank discussed market trends in off plan vs secondary real estate.


Moderated by Shahram Safai, partner at Afridi & Angell, the presentation and discussion addressed:


  • Legal protections behind off plan and secondary purchase types


  • Legal controls over developments and developers


  • Recent legal developments and government incentives in the property sector


  • Benefits of off plan vs benefits of secondary


  • How is the supply of off plan affecting the off plan and resale markets


  • View on the market pre and post Expo
