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 courts in the UAE apply Sharia Law on the distribution of property of non-Muslim expats passing away without Wills. 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 be applied to the Wills made by non-Muslims in respect of 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 was established to protect the interests of non-Muslims having assets and/or living 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 clarity in relation to the distribution of the property, appointment of executors and guardians.

(2) DIFC WPR Rules provide a comprehensive legal framework on the registration of Wills.

(3) The process for obtaining inheritance certificate is quick, simple and cost-effective.

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.
