All about Buying an Apartment in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is usually compared to the neighbouring city of Dubai because of its publicity and staggering real estate projects. However, Abu Dhabi is more significant in terms of financial stability and assets. The capital city has undergone a remarkable transformation in economic growth due to the vision of the leaders of Abu Dhabi and the abundance of oil and gas reserves.

The economic stability makes the emirate one of the best places for investment, especially in the real estate industry. When it comes to the real estate sector in Abu Dhabi, the amendments in freehold ownership law have opened up immense investment opportunities for buyers and investors. As per the law enacted by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, foreign investors and expats of all the nationalities can buy freehold properties in Abu Dhabi investment zones such as Al Raha Beach, Al Reem Island, Yas Island and Saadiyat Island. This law is part of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision for 2030 in which priorities have been set to broaden the emirate’s economy by reducing reliance on nature reserves and focusing on other sectors such as tourism, infrastructure, health and education. The newly launched projects in Abu Dhabi follow the vision and provide limitless choices for investors interested in buying apartments in Abu Dhabi. 

Freehold vs Leasehold Property in Abu Dhabi

The ownership of properties in Abu Dhabi is divided into two categories; freehold and leasehold. Freehold ownership means the investor has direct ownership of the land on which the property is built on while a leasehold title refers to the ownership for a fixed period. The maximum term for a leasehold property in Abu Dhabi is 99 years. Once the lease expires, the ownership of the entire property will go back to the freeholder. 

Before the new Abu Dhabi Freehold Property Law of 2019, ownership was largely restricted to UAE and GCC Nationals only. Expats and investors invested through three main systems; Musataha (a 50-year renewable lease), usufruct (generally a 99-year lease) and long-term leases (for 25 years or more). But the amendments to the freehold property law have significantly boosted the real estate sector in Abu Dhabi and now expats and investors can own freehold property in dedicated investment zones in Abu Dhabi. 

Popular designated investment areas for expats and foreign investors include Yas Island, Al Maryah Island, Al Raha Beach and Al Reem Island. The affordable communities suitable for buying flats in Abu Dhabi include Al Reef and Masdar City. Other freehold areas of the emirate are Saadiyat Island, Lulu Island and Seih Al Sedirah.

Leasehold and freehold areas are determined by the government and are subject to change.  

Types of Apartments in Abu Dhabi

When it comes to properties for sale, investors can find various options including ready-to-move and off-plan apartments in Abu Dhabi.

In this way, the property becomes affordable to investors as compared to ready flats encouraging potential buyers to transition to homeownership. Popular areas with off-plan properties include Yas Island, Al Reem Island and Saadiyat Island.

How to Buy an Apartment in Abu Dhabi? 

Once you’ve decided to buy a flat in Abu Dhabi, search for your desired property online using Bayut. There is a wide selection of properties available on Bayut from where you can choose the property suitable for your budget and requirements using different filters. After selecting the residential unit and expressing your interest to the buyer, the next step for both the parties is to agree on the terms of the sale through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). While signing the MOU, you would pay 2% of the property’s value to the real estate agency as a service fee and 2% to Abu Dhabi Municipality. When you have signed the agreement and made the payments, the ownership certificate will be issued by the developer after which another AED 5k will be paid to the developer as an administrative fee. If you are an expat then you can buy a flat in Abu Dhabi in designated investment zones of the emirate only, while GCC and UAE Nationals have no such restrictions. 

Costs Associated with Buying an Apartment in Abu Dhabi

The buyer is required to pay a registration fee of 2% of the purchase price to the Abu Dhabi Municipality whether it is an off-plan or ready-to-move unit. The real estate agency/agent commission is usually 2% of the property value plus 5% VAT. But if you are buying the property directly from the developer then you do not need to pay the commission fee. Those buying the property with a mortgage, 0.25% of the purchase price will be paid for its registration fee while other documentation can cost different charges. The legal and financial process of transferring the title deed of the flat for sale in Abu Dhabi can cost the buyer AED 1,000. 

Another cost related to an apartment for sale in Abu Dhabi is the annual service charges which are paid by owners to maintain the security, communal electricity, maintenance and building insurance. These charges are payable to the developer and usually calculated per square feet (sq.ft.). The price range of the service charges depends upon the location and services provided by the building. 

The buyer has to set up the electricity, water and district cooling/chiller connection for apartments in Abu Dhabi for sale by contacting the concerned authorities. An owner does not need to set up these connections if the residential unit is fully developed but instead needs to transfer the ownership of these connections. After setting up/transferring the connection, the owner will receive the monthly bill as per the energy consumption and the kind of property you have purchased.
