Dubai property buyer asks if the cheque should be in the name of the agent or seller.

Alfred is buying a Dubai property.  He needs clarity on who the cheques should be addressed to.

Alfred: ” I’m buying a property in Dubai. I actually just signed a purchase agreement.

Now I need to make a deposit for the property. What I don’t know, is can I make that check under the agent’s name?

Or should it be under the seller’s name?”

Legal Consultant, Ahmed Odeh: “Thanks Alfred for your question. The cheque  can be held by the seller’s agent.

However, any payment made towards the purchase of the property, needs to be made in the

name of the seller. Otherwise, RERA will not accept the completion of the sale.

I hope I answered your question.”
