What are the main concerns of the UAE Civil Law?
The Civil Act is by far the most complex set of laws of any country. It regulates a wide range of aspects that both natural and persons can face on a daily basis. Among these, the UAE Civil Code covers the following:
- the first and most important, civil rights of natural persons;
- disputes arising between private citizens and private citizens and companies or other organizations;
- real estate ownership, rental and tenancy agreements and their applicability and breaches;
- debt collection and other contractual matters are also covered by the Civil Code.
The Civil Code is different from the criminal one, which deals with offenses and their punishment. This is also why when facing problems, it is good to appeal to the services of a civil lawyer in Dubai in the first case and to a criminal attorney in the second one.
Another aspect to consider is that in the UAE, the Civil Law applies at a national level, however, each Emirate has its own variations of the same code.
