Pay off your mortgage.
Produce a liability letter from the bank that you have the mortgage on your property with. Once you do, the buyer’s bank will then arrange to pay off your mortgage. You may be asked to sign a few documents pertaining to authorising your bank to accept the settlement of the loan and instructing the bank to release the property documents once the mortgage is settled.
The buyer’s bank will pay off the mortgage while your bank issues the clearance documentation. Transfer of OwnershipThe next step is to submit a copy of the NOC to the buyer’s bank. The bank will then take about 2-3 days to prepare the final documentation for the property transfer.
You would then need to meet with the buyer, the buyer’s bank, agent and the mortgage consultant at the developer’s office (if it is a property under construction) or at the Dubai Land Department to initiate the transfer.
If the buyer’s bank issues a guarantee letter, you will receive the cheque for any additional payment a week later. The buyer’s contribution will be paid to you through a manager’s cheque.
