Dubai Land Department (DLD) has been restructured following an approval from H H Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, leads DLD.
He has approved a new organisational structure for DLD, which provides realty services such as documenting property sales, issuing real estate ownership, and promoting investment in Dubai property.
The department’s new organisational structure revolves around three areas: corporate support, real estate registration services, and real estate investment promotion.
Corporate support includes departments such as corporate communications, human resources, finance, administrative affairs, and information technology.
Real estate registration services includes departments for customer happiness, real estate valuation, real estate registration, and survey, while the real estate investment promotion arm covers real estate promotion, real estate studies, and real estate development.
DLD will also have a Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA), a Dubai Real Estate Institute (DREI), and Rental Disputes Centre (RDC).
Departments of monitoring and risk assessment, strategy and corporate development, and legal affairs will report to Sultan Butti bin Mejren, director general of DLD, a press release said.
It said that Mejren will issue bylaws to implement the restructure under the resolution issued by H H Sheikh Hamdan.
