Renting a Room in Dubai

These are all the things you need to know about renting a room in Dubai. Remember it’s always important to vigorously research this topic, this way when you get there you won’t be surprised or shocked about anything because you will be well informed.

Become Aware of the Laws
When looking for a room for rent in Dubai, get to know their renting laws. This can really help you out if a landlord ever tried forcing you to pay an amount that you never agreed upon in your fifth month of being there.

Real Estate Regulatory Agency
Any brokers or agents that you rent with must be registered in this agency if they aren’t they could end up ripping you off by thousands and sometimes millions of dollars.

When looking for apartments for rent in Dubai, make sure you are registered with Ejari because this protects your rights and gives you a real legalized tenancy contract. So if any problems were to ever happen this will be a solid document that will help you.

Security deposits must be written in your Ejari and blue tenancy contract by the brokers. This amount is usually refundable once you have left the property.

Large families cannot stay in flats or villas in Dubai because overcrowding is prohibited.

Look for great deals by different brokers and choose which one is best for you, don’t settle for the first one that you find.

Get Insurance
Make sure you get either home or contents insurance because if a fire or a flood were to ever happen a tenant is not always responsible for reimbursing you unless stated otherwise in your contract with them.

Sign Up Online
Easily register your apartment with Dubai’s Land Department and Ejari online by registering your tenancy contract through the online system provided by Ejari. Simply complete eight steps of registering your apartment and you’re good to go, just make sure you made your online payment and that you have hard copies of everything when needed.

Utility Services
After you have paid for your apartment you can easily get internet, water and electricity. For water and electricity, you can easily apply online on the Dubai Electricity and Water Authorities (DEWA) website.

Know Your Rights
A lot of times when landlords demand an increase on rent from their tenants, the tenants end up just leaving. However, if your landlord has not given you a 90-day advance notice on the risen cost then they are not entitled to one.
