Next step would be signing an MOU or Memorandum of Understanding, and you can download the official application form from the Dubai Land Department website where it could be found with the title “contract F”. MOU is a final agreement of sale but it’s not the official sale and purchase contract. Upon signing the MOU, you need to pay a down payment of 10% from the total value of the property unless agreed on something else.
The following step is asking for a NOC issued by the project developer and it’s essential to do so in order to transfer the ownership, and to clear the status of the property before taking any further steps in terms of financial obligations of all sorts including service fees or other payments. 

Last step, is visiting the Dubai Land Department office to transfer the ownership, and at this stage you need to make the full payment of the property. The payment must be completed in the form of a manager’s cheque. Then, a title deed would be issued to your name and you become the actual owner of the property.
