The usual term for almost all leases is 1 year (12 months). You cannot get an Ejari for less than 1 year. But there is the option of obtaining the Ejari for one year and canceling the contract after that period. The renewal of Ejari is mandatory every time you renew the lease of your apartment or villa for rent in Dubai, which in most cases will be once a year.

You can renew the contract online by submitting all the required Ejari renewal documents. The Ejari registration is only valid for one year, so it is essential to renew it annually. When you're ready to change the property you're renting or when the landlord is preparing to get a new tenant, you should update your registration. All you have to do is go to the Ejari app and submit any modifications to the property to obtain the Ejari renewal documentation, along with the usual Ejari registration forms.

The Ejari registration has no expiration date, so you must cancel it when the rental period ends. If the tenant changes the property or when the landlord is about to get a new tenant, it is necessary to renew the Ejari registration. It is usually done once a year. In that case, you should cancel Ejari, since there is no such thing as expiration or automatic cancellation of Ejari. The Ejari registry is the responsibility of both landlord and tenant, so if the broker does it for them, it is an additional fee or an act of good will. Ejari was introduced by the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) to improve the relationship between landlords and tenants and put an end to bad practices in the rental sector by making the entire procedure transparent for all interested parties.

In most cases, once you have completed the application and submitted the necessary documents, you will receive your Ejari in a day or two. But how do you make sure you're signing a good deal? Rental procedures in Dubai are well developed and all parties are well protected by this relatively new system. In addition, without registering in the Ejari system, it is impossible to resolve any rental disputes and protect your interests in court. It also facilitates communication with public service providers and communication, since their suppliers will require a unique Ejari identification number when signing contracts. According to authorities, residents of hotel apartments must submit their lease documents to the GDRFA, since the Dubai Land Department no longer issues registration certificates of lease agreements or ejari letters in such cases. The Real Estate Regulatory Agency (Rera) may impose sanctions in case of non-compliance with the Ejari law. It is important to renew your Ejari every year, as that will be the only way to resolve any legal complications that may arise in the future.

Nor will you be able to cancel your DEWA account in the future without making sure that your Ejari has been renewed for all years you were at this property, which will be difficult when you need to recover a deposit.
