DLD has so far achieved a 50% classification rate for properties in Dubai, with all buildings in the Deira district surveyed in 2016 and completion of the emirate’s older areas now exceeding 70%.
The project includes a comprehensive survey for all land plots, villas, commercial and residential buildings as well as factories and shopping centres, with every building type in Dubai registered. It will also contribute towards facilitating better procedures for property rentals.
“This initiative helps DLD to gain accurate and reliable information, to help the Organisation document all properties within its database and respond to customer requirements quickly and easily,” Sultan Butti Bin Mejren, Director General of Dubai Land Department, said in a media report.
DLD has previously taken steps to outline how owners need to cooperate with field engineers to facilitate their work, and to ensure success for this project with great importance for urban planning.
The engineering team has been trained by DLD to only photograph real estate, and there will be no filming of any personal or private areas. This initiative will respect everyone’s privacy by focusing only on project-related data.
