Dubai real estate adverts
Madmoun, accessible through the Trakheesi System, will utilise QR Code technology for real estate advertisement permits as part of DLD's continued efforts to modernise and improve real estate governance and investor confidence.
Real estate companies must include QR codes in print and video ads starting April 24.
The code lets customers instantly check the advertisement's authenticity and RERA approval.
Customers can examine the whole advertisement, including the advertising business, property condition, and specifications, on the Dubai Land Department website.

DLD strongly advises customers and investors to only engage with real estate advertisements that include the QR Code to protect their rights and avoid fraudulent or unreliable transactions.
