Understanding of inheritance and debt settlement

 

Dubai’s inheritance laws follow Shari’a law, in which the deceased’s estate is proportionally divided among family members. The UAE Personal Affairs Law of 2005 clarifies that for foreigners, the inheritance laws of the home country should apply. For UAE citizens, a scholar will be assigned to each case. He will determine the number of heirs and divide the estate according to Shari’a. When it comes to UAE real estate owned by foreigners, the written will of the deceased will be adhered to, provided it follows the laws and regulations of the country in which it was drafted. Keep in mind that this is not always the case and it is important to seek legal advice.
 
If the deceased had any outstanding debts at the time of death, those debts will be taken from his or her estate.
