Dubai Land Department (DLD) has announced that its work on Dubai’s Building Classification project is now being carried out at an accelerated pace, with the organisation expecting to complete its survey of all buildings across the emirate this year, a post on its website said.

The announcement came following DLD achieving a 50% classification rate for all Dubai properties, with all buildings in the Deira district surveyed in 2016 and completion of the emirate’s older areas now exceeding 70%.

“This initiative helps DLD to gain accurate and reliable information, to help the organisation document all properties within its database and respond to customer requirements quickly and easily,” said Sultan Butti Bin Mejren, director general of Dubai Land Department.

The project includes a comprehensive survey for all land plots, villas, commercial and residential buildings, factories, and shopping centres, with every building type in Dubai registered. This will contribute towards facilitating better procedures for property rentals, in addition to the classification of each property in Dubai reaching the utmost precision.

DLD has previously taken steps to outline how owners need to cooperate with field engineers to facilitate their work, and to ensure success for this project with great importance for urban planning.

The engineering team has been trained by DLD to only photograph real estate, and there will be no filming of any personal or private areas. This initiative will respect everyone’s privacy by focusing only on project-related data.
