My agent found a suitable property in Dubai for me. I asked him for a copy of the title deed but the agent said the building has just been handed over and the owner has not yet completed all his payments to the developer. Hence, the owner does not have a title deed yet. The agent is now asking me for a deposit so that I can secure the property. Should I take the lease?


  For Dubai residents, do not take the lease unless you see a title deed. Moreover, if the agent is asking you for a security deposit without even showing you the title deed, its more often than not that it is a scam and should be avoided.
