Among the various Wills in Dubai, a DIFC Will is the one that benefits the non-Muslim section. A DIFC Will is a legal document made for the purpose of allowing non-Muslim expatriates who have assets in UAE to specifically determine how their assets (financial, real estate, business etc) would be transferred to their nominated beneficiaries, after their lifetime. The DIFC Wills Service Centre, previously known as the DIFC Wills & Probate Registry, is a specialized facility located within the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
It offers a comprehensive service for the creation, registration, and execution of Wills. The DIFC Wills and Probate Rules, primarily cater to non-Muslim individuals, providing a clear framework for drafting and updating Wills, covering various assets and guardianship, and ensuring legal clarity and common law principles alignment. Regularly checking the official rules is crucial due to potential revisions and jurisdiction-specific provisions.
