The authorized representative is required to bring an authorization letter addressed to Dubai Properties and signed by the owner(s), along with an original valid ID. Please be advised that only the owner(s) or Power of Attorney (POA) holders can sign the “Developer Self Registration“(DSR) document.

A. Yes, you can authorize a representative to submit the documents on your behalf. Your appointed representative is required to have a letter of authorization signed by the owner(s) and is required to present valid identification at the time of submission. Once the “Developer Self Registration” (DSR) document is processed, the owner (s) will be required to come in person to sign. However, a representative may be assigned to act on behalf of the Owner(s) and complete the application process by providing us with a Power of Attorney (POA) document as well as an Original Passport. The POA must be attested by the UAE Courts.
