A real estate disputes resolution centre will soon be set up in Abu Dhabi to reduce the number of cases brought before the courts, said judicial authorities.  
The move comes in accordance with the agreement signed between Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) and the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT). 
The Real Estate Dispute Settlement Centre will comprise qualified real estate conciliators who will work to settle disputes between parties amicably. This in turn will help manage the influx of real estate dispute cases in courts. 
The group of conciliators have undergone specialised courses to carry out their conciliation and reconciliation duties, Abdullah Al Sahi, Acting Undersecretary of the DMT said.
Youssef Saeed Al-Abri, Undersecretary of the Judicial Department, said, "It is meant to be an important step in support of the efforts made to enable the amicable settlement of disputes to foster reconciliation between litigants and encourage amicable settlement of disputes as part of the initiatives of ongoing development of the judicial system and support for business competitiveness in the emirate."
Al Sahi noted that the initiative is among the priorities of the DMT to improve the real estate and investment environment of Abu Dhabi, thus helping to promote the real estate dynamics and reduce the number of cases brought before the courts.
