Abu Dhabi’s Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities (DPM), in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Digital Authority (ADDA) and real estate developer Aldar Properties, launched a home service named 'Buy a Home' at the 39th edition of the Gitex Technology Week, being held at Dubai World Trade Centre on 6-10 October 2019.

The tripartite agreement between DPM, ADDA, and Aldar comprises joint initiatives and events that aim to "create a seamless exchange of data between government entities through an integrated system", which is expected to provide access to data that can help customers purchase a home more easily. 

The services offered range from searching for a suitable home based on set area requirements, engineering drawings and including home exterior designs, financing systems offered by Aldar, implementing the transfer of the title process, and utilities set-up requests.

The 'Hassantuk' programme, offered as a value-added service, will help customers complete the purchase of their home, and introduce safety and protection measures such as firefighting systems to the new home-owners.

Commenting on the partnership in an ADDA statement, chief executive officer of Aldar Properties, Talal Al Dhiyebi, said: “Contributing to the welfare of the Abu Dhabi community is an ongoing priority and commitment for us at Aldar, and we remain focused on delivering attractive destinations and cutting-edge services that meet the aspirations of Abu Dhabi’s residents and visitors alike.

"We are proud to partner with DPM and ADDA to provide a digital-led unified and interactive experience that is in line with the latest innovations in tech.”
