We (me and my son) signed 2 MOU for 2 properties owned by my son in Dubai in December 2020.My son was not 21 years old so the agent asked me to sign also the contract along him.
We had a clause that COVID is included in force majeure ,the transfer date was 1st June. We both were not vaccinated till that time and UK Gov. advice was not to travel to UAE ,we contacted the agent they were trying us to sign another MOU with some of their buyer as they have agreed with some one else to purchase the properties. We have informed them we can not travel they were insisting to extend the contract that we have rejected. Now they have filled claim in Dubai courts against me and my son ,I have yesterday received a call and email from Tableegh.
I would like to know as my son was under age when he signed the contract ,I was not owner of the properties ,we had a clause of COVID ,if you can guide us.
In order to determine the validity of the contract and to better understand your legal position, it is important to review the Property Sales Contract and other documents including any other letter or email correspondence. Moreover, it will also be important to understand the registration status of the property. Once these details are available with us, we will be in a position to guide you on what your legal position is and the relevant recourse at your disposal.
If you would prefer, we can schedule a consultation for you to discuss the matter in detail.
