    I have read something about federal restrictions on residence visas ,even for investors who have bought property already.
    There was a recent article in the Gulf News and i think that this will eventually lead to a lack of confiddence in the system.
    From the report it was just some official talking but it is really unclear. I am concerned that since that an about turn can be made on this issue an about turn can be made on the free hold status, and it would appear that they can just abruptly change laws at will.
    With lack of confidence people will start to sell and prices will depreciate. this is really bothering me and i just wanted to see what everyone else feels

    residence visa's were NEVER guaranteed by law - developers that advertised residence visa's did so with no official say so - the federal government hands out visa's, not property companies.

    i dont think this 'news' will make a blind bit of difference

    It will come back in an amended form. The loopholes will be filled and a more equitable system will come into place. (possibly federal) Believe it or not, the system was being abused which triggered the moritorium. It most certainly will be reintroduced

    They will not be able to do without foreign labor. I have been around in this place for a long time and have seen these rules cropping up and then disappearing.

    The quota rules were talked about before and they decided that they had enough of Indians / Pakistani's in the country but you still see more of them coming in.

    Sounds very optimistic
    No labour - no construction (or very expensive) – demands overcome the supply – price goes up
    Implementation of Federal Law for property ownership – more people will buy to get the visa – price goes up
    Changes in regulations and fees for family and domestic help sponsorship – people get more money and they can afford properties – price goes up

    With few words less labour and rich middle class – price goes up
    Well done
