WHO WE ARE
Your POA was founded in early 2015 following the introduction of some important government changes regarding Power of Attorney representation in Dubai. Your POA was established with the aim of simplifying property transactions for all Dubai property investors.

If you are buying or selling a property in Dubai but are unable to be present to handle all of the formalities personally, Your POA can represent you as Power of Attorney for the full sale/purchase transaction; from the initial signing of the sales agreement to the NOC at the developer’s office and final transfer at the Dubai Land Department. A fast, simple and secure legal representation for a nominal fixed fee.
Property transactions in Dubai are becoming more complicated as the market grows and as the procedures become regulated. Using a property conveyancer is therefore an important consideration for all investors to ensure that their interests are safeguarded within the framework of the law. Your POA staff are legally qualified and experienced to guide you through the full process from start to finish.
Did you know that it is possible to transfer some or all of your property ownership to a relative without paying the full transfer fees to the Dubai Land Department? If not, you may benefit from our very unique Gift transfer services. Discover a cheaper and easier way to protect your property assets!
Your POA are proud to offer you our complete Property Handover service, ideal for overseas owners who are unable to come to Dubai to sign the final papers and collect the keys to their new home. We take care of all of this, from the inspection/snagging on the property and registering the utilities to signing the final paperwork and taking possession of the property. We have a great deal of experience in working with some of the biggest developers in the region so you can be assured that you will get your Handover finalised as quickly and smoothly as possible.
If you are yet to obtain the Title Deed for your Dubai property, now is the time to do so. The Title Deed is the single most important document showing legal proof of ownership so registering with the Dubai Land Department and obtaining this is a must. At Your POA, we can take care of the application process with the developer and Dubai Land Department to register your interests with the appropriate authorities and ensure that your rights are suitably protected.
In Dubai, all landlords and tenants must register with the relevant utility providers. The processes at these offices can however be both time-consuming and frustrating with countless documents needed and repeated changes in policies. At Your POA, we visit these offices on a daily basis so are in the best position to get these small but important tasks finalised quickly and efficiently. Why not let someone else take care of the monotonous and tedious administrative tasks and paper-pushing?
Inheritance matters tend to cause a great sense of worry to many Dubai property owners. Most do not understand the laws and so tend to avoid the subject altogether – when it should in fact be a very important consideration. At Your POA, we can provide advice on the rules governing succession or inheritance rights under Sharia Law, Inheritance Law, Wills and other Laws, customs or practices applicable in Dubai. We will discuss the options available to you and can even provide Power of Attorney representation at the Dubai Courts. Our aim is to to simplify these issues and encourage greater protection of your property assets.
Anyone who has been involved with a rental dispute with their tenant, landlord or real estate broker in Dubai will testify as to how stressful and complicated this can be. At Your POA, we are always on hand to give you some extra advice and guidance on the current rental laws in Dubai as well as offering full Power of Attorney representation at any legal and/or judicial proceedings, rental dispute cases, hearings, pleadings, court cases and judgements with the Dubai Rental Disputes Centre, RERA, Dubai Courts and/or Dubai Police.
Setting up Your Power of Attorney Dubai is easy!
“Having never been to Dubai and not understanding the market regulations, it was a great relief to have Your POA on side. Throughout the property handover & sale, Your POA were always available to explain the surprises and guide us through the process as efficiently as possible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, their local knowledge and expertise was of great assistance to us.”
“Due to family problems I had to leave Dubai within 24 hours, with no time to cancel my apartment or DEWA [electricity bills]. Philip Smith from Your POA handled the situation really professionally and took all the stress away by only contacting me for the necessary. I would recommend Your POA to everyone now. Everything was handled quickly and without any problems. Thanks again Philip for all the effort you’ve put into this.”
“Philip assisted us to sell our apartment in Dubai in 2014. He was honest, friendly and truly professional in all his dealings. We live in New Zealand and needed someone who could simply deal with all the head-aches of shifting paperwork across the bankers, developers and government departments desks until the property was sold and the money safely in our account. It was a complete hassle free experience all the way from New Zealand.”
“I am pleased to confirm that I have used the services of Philip Smith for the purchase of a property in Dubai. He acted very professionally in all matters relating to our property purchase as well as handling Title Deed applications. His dedication to detail and work ethic enabled us to undertake a smooth handover of our property.”
“Philip organised the handover of my apartment in March 2015. There was little notice and I was able to stopover in Dubai for only 3 days. However, this was long enough to arrange the essential paperwork and Philip dealt with the rest after I left. I was very satisfied with the services and the friendly yet professional way he delivered them. I was pleased he could work around the tight constraints of my short visit and I always felt he explained clearly for me all the things I needed to know. It was all very impressive and reassuring for an overseas buyer who needed practical, reliable and straightforward assistance. I would certainly use Philip again, and wholeheartedly recommend him to others without reservation.”
“I first contacted Philip to sell my properties in Dubai in September 2014. Philip was extremely courteous, responsive and was a great asset in securing all legal components to get the deal done in a timely manner. Philip is a pleasure to work with and exceeded all expectations – I would not hesitate to use his services again and I wish him well in the future.”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Philip on numerous occasions and was consistently impressed with his professionalism, capability and, above all, attention to detail. I always found him very pleasant to deal with and generous with his time. More often than not, he exceeded my expectations with any task assigned to him. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.”
