Drafting wills in the UAE just got an update with the new DIFC rules allowing non-Muslims to include their worldwide assets in their DIFC wills. This new registration option along with virtual registrations and rules to notarise a bilingual will requires lawyers to draft a valid and enforceable will respectively. Incorrectly constituted will can hinder enforcing client’s wishes and render them invalid.
The experts aim to:
• Ascertain the rules of registration under which the will must be registered – DIFC or Dubai (Onshore)
• Undertaking precise instructions for wills
• Ability to convert client’s wishes into the will
• Addressing subjects of beneficiaries, taxation of estates and types of gifts.
