Does anyone know of the regulations for owning a freehold property in Sharjah or Ajman? I see alot of ads from developers and agents for properties that include residency visas for even up to 99 years with 100% ownership. Can anyone clarify this?

I am a bit confused on this issue, since doing some research. Some sites state that there is no such thing as freehold anymore, and some state that there still is. Anyone have any experience?

Yes it is freehold ownership technically, but the land is still owned pretty much but the government as a whole, so they could take it back at any time - but of course I'm sure they wouldn't.

why would you like to buy in Sharjah or Ajman?

Do not buy off-plan!, do not.....

I am thinking about Sharjah or Ajman due to the cost differences between those emirates and Dubai. Are there certain restrictions about purchasing freehold properties?

Can one still obtain residency visa through a freehold property, whether Dubai, sharjah or Ajman? Also, what do you mean when you say "Off-plan"?

Didn't think there was freehold in Sharjah, there is in Ajman, and there's some nice places almost complete on the corniche too (Corniche tower for example), speak to Roger Wilkinson of Northern Emirates property services, he's based here and specialises in Northern Emirates - he is a saffer though!

Do you know if there are restrictions to the residence visa through freehold (for example, price of property; monthly income; etc)?

not sure if they still provide visas, that was only to get people to buy in the first place.. but when they do give visa the only restriction you will find is the normal visa rules, i.e medical e.t.c
