Three Considerations for DIFC Wills

Given the uncertainties involved in having no Will in Dubai and/or Ras Al Khaimah or having a non-DIFC Will in Dubai and/or Ras Al Khaimah, you may consider the following 3 considerations to determine the merits of DIFC Wills and Probate Registry:

1. No Will in Dubai / Ras Al Khaimah

The UAE courts adhere to the Sharia Law in respect of the distribution of assets of all non-Muslim expats who pass away without a Will. This essentially means that your wife, children and all other legal heirs will share your estate in accordance with the distribution mechanism devised under the Sharia Law. Your legal heirs could include your parents, brothers and sisters. The court/probate process may also be costly and lengthy in the absence of a right Will in Dubai / Ras Al Khaimah.

2. Non-DIFC Will in Dubai / Ras Al Khaimah

Non-DIFC Wills in Dubai / Ras Al Khaimah are signed before the Notary Public (Courts) in Dubai / Ras Al Khaimah. The Sharia Law may still apply to the Wills in Dubai / Ras Al Khaimah made by non-Muslims disposing of their real estate – thus making the distribution of a key asset uncertain. Further, this option may be expensive and time consuming at the time of probate – this may not be a preferred option for you if you wish to give your family the necessary peace of mind.

3. DIFC Will in Dubai / Ras Al Khaimah

DIFC Wills and Probate Registry has been set up specifically to cater for the requirements of non-Muslims owning assets or residing in Dubai / Ras Al Khaimah. The registration of a Will with the DIFC Wills and Probate Registry has the following benefits: (1) The Will shall provide certainty on the distribution of assets and appointment of guardians as per your wishes. (2) Legal regime is clear and unambiguous. (3) Probate process is simpler, quicker and cheaper than other court processes.

DIFC Will Registration Process

1. Once your DIFC Will has been prepared, you need to visit DIFC WPR website to book a will registration appointment. At the time of appointment, you will need to take a Will prepared in accordance with the Rules of DIFC Wills and Probate Registry.

2. You will need to pay the applicable fee while signing your Will at the DIFC Wills and Probate Registry. A non-refundable fee is applicable when booking your appointment, which will be deducted from the total fee payable at the time of registration.

3. DIFC Wills and Probate Registry’s mobile app ‘DIFC Wills’ is available to download for apple and Android users. This allows the individuals to book an appointment in a few clicks through the app on their mobile phone.

4. All registered wills are stored in an electronic format for the remainder of the lifetime of the person at the DIFC Wills and Probate Registry. This significantly minimizes the possibility of damage, tampering and loss of the Will.

5 reasons for making DIFC Wills

1. Transfer your assets as you wish

You can leave your Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah assets (moveable and immoveable) to anyone you like by registering your Will with the DIFC Wills and Probate Registry (DIFC WPR). You can also appoint guardians for your children, give specific gifts of cash or items to anyone of your choice though your DIFC Will.

2. Available for residents and non-residents

All residents and non-residents over the age of 21 years with assets in Dubai and/or in Ras Al Khaimah are eligible to register their Wills with DIFC WPR.

3. Simple registration process

The registration process for DIFC Wills is extremely simple and secure. The testator visits the offices of DIFC WPR and signs the Will formally in the presence of an officer of DIFC WPR. The testator should be accompanied by one (1) witness. Upon signing, the Will is immediately registered. This process significantly reduces the possibility of claims challenging the validity of the Will at the probate stage.

4. Clear legal mechanism

DIFC WPR Rules provide clear and unambiguous guidelines on writing Wills and the probate process. These Rules are based on the common law principles and legislation of other leading common law jurisdictions such as the UK, Singapore and Malaysia.

5. Short probate process

The process of probate under DIFC WPR Rules is extremely short and simple. DIFC Court is responsible for issuing probate grants/court orders for the distribution of estate as well as guardianship orders. The time-frame for the completion of probate process is expected to be less than one (1) month. This is significantly shorter than any other court processes in the UAE.

What if I do not have a UAE Will?

UAE courts adhere to Sharia Law in respect of the distribution of assets of a non-muslim UAE expat where he or she dies without a Will in place.

The UAE law allows the non-Muslims to choose the laws of their home country to apply to their inheritance. This can be done through a clearly drafted Will. So, having a Will is mandatory in the UAE. Non-Muslim UAE expats or individuals otherwise having assets in the UAE must either register their Wills with the Notary Public or the DIFC Wills and Probate Registry.
