Question: Can a non-UAE resident who purchased a property from a developer take possession of the property directly without an agent? Can he collect the keys to his apartment directly by himself? And can he instruct the developer to register the property with land department without necessarily going through another agent?

Answer: Yes it is possible to instruct a third party to register the property through a valid attested power of attorney but we do not recommend to do that. To complete the transfer, it is always better for the investor to be present at the land department to sign the transfer documents.
