Buying FAQs

For UAE Residents, a Valid Passport, a copy of your United Arab Emirates Visa and an Emirates ID is required when renting out a property.

Tenants pay a 5% security deposit for an unfurnished property and a 10% deposit for a furnished one. This applies to both villas and apartments in Dubai.

Tenants must pay the following bills:

  • DEWA - Electricity, water & gas
  • AC Cooling
  • Internet
  • Municipality tax = 5% of the annual rent split into monthly payments and added to your DEWA bill

Subletting a property in Dubai is only allowed with written approval from the Landlord and should not be done otherwise.

The Landlord can only increase the rent in line with the Dubai Rental index, which RERA sets. A rent increase is only allowed depending on the current market rates and if your current rent falls below the average.

The Tenant is ordinarily responsible for any minor maintenance issues that may arise during the tenancy, and anything significant is the Landlord's responsibility to take care of.

You will need to pay 5% or 10% for your security deposit, depending on whether your property is furnished. This deposit is refundable only after the end of your tenancy.

Other payments include your upfront rent, post-dated cheque(s) and your agency fee. You will also need to make sure and set some money aside for your utility connections, TV, electricity, water and wifi.

Usually, a penalty is applicable when wanting to break a fixed-term contract. Please refer to your tenancy contract to check this. Tenants typically sign a fixed 12-month contract; should you wish to vacate at the end of the fixed term, they will need to issue their notice 90 days before the end of the contract.
