When it comes to rental agreements in Dubai, the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) requires that all contracts be registered and documented through the Ejari system. This means that when a tenant or landlord does not plan to renew the lease or when the rental agreement is terminated early, the Ejari contract must be cancelled. But what does this process entail?Contrary to popular belief, your Ejari contract will not be automatically cancelled after the contract expires. Instead, DEWA will remain connected until an application is submitted to close it.
Louisa Bridge, director of property management at Haus and Haus Real Estate, explains that the owner or property management company must complete an application requesting the cancellation. At the time of the move, this process must also be completed by the landlord. Fortunately, Al Taresh Trustee offers a hassle-free Ejari cancellation process, with no need to visit the RERA office. This service allows customers to request the cancellation of an expired Ejari contract or a canceled contract for properties rented in Dubai. It's important to note that even after you have signed the lease agreement, the Ejari process still needs to be completed.
You must have a NOC signed by the owner to request a cancellation of Ejari with a copy of the owner's passport with a signature page or a copy of the Emirates ID card.
