Mortgages In The United Arab Emirates

Mortgages are now widely available from most banks and some financial institutions in the UAE.

You have two options when selecting a UAE mortgage: conventional mortgages and Islamic mortgages. Interestingly enough, 70% of Islamic mortgages are granted to non-Muslims. A main benefit of the Islamic mortgage is the fact that there is no charge for early repayment of the loan. Currently HSBC interest rates are approximately 6%.

Mortgages are available to buyers of residential property as well as those interested in buying for the buy-to-let market. The lending criteria vary from one lender to another, but in general purchasers can expect to get an 80% mortgage on the value of the property if they are residents and 70% if they are non-residents. The mortgage term usually runs for 20 years, but must be paid by the borrower’s 60th birthday.

Each financial institution will require particular documents in order to apply for a mortgage. These are likely to include:

  • Application form
  • Passport
  • If you are employed:
    • copies of your last three months pay slips
    • copies of your last 5 years P60/employer’s reference
    • copies of your last 6 months personal bank statements
  • For the self-employed:
    • copies of your last 5 years audited accounts
    • copies of last 12 months’ business accounts
    • last 6 months’ personal bank statements
