RERA Continues Its Campaigns To Inform And Educate Tenants
(18 September 2012)


The Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA), the regulatory arm of Dubai’s Land Department (LD) continues its intensive campaigns in several media outlets and on its website to keep tenants and landlords informed about their rights and duties. Such efforts aim at enhancing contractual relationship between them and to avoid any disputes that might arise as a result of lack of awareness regarding their rights and obligations. Moreover, RERA seeks to boost understanding and reconciliation practices instead of referring disputes to the judicial authorities.

RERA stressed that it will carry on with its awareness campaigns and educational efforts in line with the growth in the leasing market. It also confirmed that there are a number of steps that should be followed by tenants either they are individuals or companies. These steps assure that no party will be negatively affected if it recognizes its contractual rights and obligations. RERA calls on all parties to follow the tips and instructions it provides to safeguard the rights of all parties and specifically tenants as per the requirements of Law No. 26 of 2007 regulating Relationship between Landlords and Tenants in the Emirate of Dubai.

RERA calls on the concerned parties to check the real estate company’s license and the type of its activity as per the specialty of the company. Such information can be checked by visiting the official website of Dubai’s Land Department. For example, to check if the concerned company is an active one carrying on with its business, to check the company’s registration numbers with RERA, to check the broker’s ID card issued by RERA, the cheques must be written on behalf of property Management Company rather that on behalf of individuals and to obtain a copy of the bank guarantee. In case of leasing directly from the individual owner, tenants are advised to verify the ownership of the property by the landlord or to check the availability of management contract in the case of property management companies. Tenants need to obtain a lease contract registered in Ejari system to get a certificate registering the lease contract to ensure their rights and to make the contact accepted in government transactions at Dubai’s government departments.

In the past three months, RERA had registered 60,000 properties in Ejari system. This system organizes the contractual relation between landlords and tenants. Ejari helps in identifying many pious contracts and the disclosure of companies engaged in leasing and re-leasing of properties against their licensed activities.
