Thanks for your question. Please kindly RATE my answer when you are satisfied
Have you or do you propose to accept the offer please?
Are you satisfied with the buyer's credentials - e.g. proof of funds etc?
I do not have proof of funds. How would I obtain proof and even then proceed, please?
A UK solicitor will not be able to assist with this but you would do well to consider appointing an English speaking Dubai lawyer to complete your sale to ensure that funds are transferred over to you as agreed and the legal formalities are completed satisfactorily.
Your agent (assuming you have appointed one) can ask the buyer for proof of funds or in deed you could ask if you prefer to ensure that the buyer is able to proceed. It is not unusual for such a question to be asked of a buyer before a seller takes a property off the market.
Many thanks. I can now go to the next step. I have not appointed an agent as my property was advertised through Bayut.com as an individual.
I see - there is nothing stopping you asking for evidence of proof of funds any more than can an agent had you appointed one.
