How much can you borrow?

The amount you can borrow for a mortgage in the UAE depends on various factors, including your income, credit history, and the property’s value. Typically, lenders consider your debt-to-income ratio, with most allowing a maximum of 50% of your monthly income to go towards mortgage payments. Your credit score also plays a significant role, affecting the interest rate and loan amount. Additionally, lenders evaluate the property’s value and condition. While policies may vary among banks and financial institutions, it’s essential to clearly understand your financial standing and the property’s appraisal to determine how much you can borrow for your real estate investment in the UAE.

Maximum LTV (Loan to Value)

  • If the value of the property is less than AED 5 million – 80% for the first mortgage – 65% for the second mortgage and more
  • If the value of the property is over AED 5 million – 70% for the first mortgage – 65% for the second mortgage and above
  • Expats and non-residents of the UAE are considered eligible for a maximum loan-to-value ratio of 50%
  • In other cases, a few private banks finance off-plan projects after 50% completion and, as such, offer an LTV of 50%.
  • To increase the chances of eligibility, joint applications are also allowed (in the case of siblings, couples and business partners)
    What about the necessary documents?

    When it comes to securing a mortgage or home loan in the UAE, the path to homeownership is paved with specific document requirements. The documents you need can vary based on your employment status, whether you’re an employee or self-employed, and even if you’re an expat. These documents serve as a critical part of your mortgage application and approval process. To help you navigate this journey and understand the necessary documents involved, let’s delve into the details of what you’ll need to provide as you embark on your real estate journey in the UAE. The right documentation ensures a smooth and successful mortgage application, bringing you one step closer to achieving your real estate dreams in the UAE.

    For employees:
    • Application form, consent letter and authorization letter for office check
    • Valid national ID card or passport, residence visa and Emirates ID card
    • Original bank statement for the last 3 months for new customers
    • Salary certificate
      For the self-employed:
      • Application form, loan authorization letter and office check consent letter
      • Copy of business license, chamber of commerce registration, memorandum and articles of association
      • Original 12-month company and personal bank account statements for new customers
        For expats:
        • A copy of your passport
        • Proof of UAE residency and proof of current address
        • Financial statements such as proof of salary, bank documents and tax returns

To begin with, it can be challenging to comprehend how a mortgage works. It may occasionally be challenging. We do our best to break down the total cost, nonetheless, for your advantage.

EIBOR (Emirates Interbank Offered Rate) plus the base rate is the long-term rate.

Base rates might differ from one bank to another. The UAE Central Bank typically publishes and regulates EIBOR, which is also a standard across all banks.

Short-term rate: The majority of banks in the United Arab Emirates offer fixed rates for short-term terms, which typically range from one to three years.

In general, as a customer, you should pay more attention to the long-term rate. You will gain the most from doing this because the proverb “the lower the base rate, the better the mortgage” is unambiguous.
