The e-NOC system went live at Dubai Land Department on Sunday. For a property transfer in Dubai, No-Objection Certificates (NOC) can now be done electronically – a step that will speed up the process and, potentially, reduce cost for the seller.
Currently, these NoCs are issued by the developer or the concerned owner association (OA) management company. And they typically charge between Dh1,500-Dh3,000 for the same. In some instances, getting the OK cost the owner even Dh5,000.
“Whether it’s a one-year old property or 10 years, developers/OAs are still demanding – and getting – a fee for the NOC issue,” said a property owner currently selling a unit at Dubai Silicon Oasis. “It’s an unwarranted charge and should not be added as a burden on the seller,” he added.
The Land Department has not prescribed any fees that property sellers should be paying for the e-NOCs, and that's what is giving owners a lot of hope.
