Since 2002 foreigners can acquire real estate property based on the decree of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.  
At present the purchase of property and the construction of buildings in the United Arab Emirates are regulated by the federal civil code (article 742-848 and 1134 et seqq.).  
The warranty of the local government as well as the contractual warranty of the complete acquisition of the property in the respective purchase contract, guarantee that the buyer receive a transferable and inheritable security documented in the register of land and property of the United Arab Emirates. Inheritances are regulated in the civil code, article 17.
