Are you looking to move into a new property in Dubai? If so, you may have heard of the term 'Ejari' and wondered if it is linked to DEWA. The answer is yes - DEWA only connects to Ejari when connecting to the service. The DEWA of the property will remain in your name and you will receive the invoices until you manually cancel that property. This means that if the previous tenant hasn't canceled their DEWA, you may have to pay their outstanding bill in order to connect yours.
As of July 1, all DEWA customers are required to obtain their Ejari for moving services without having to visit it. You can do this through property management companies and typing centers authorized by the Dubai Land Department, saving you time and effort. Once Ejari is certified, you will receive a welcome note from DEWA by email and SMS with the account number and the link to pay the security deposit. If you haven't received a welcome email, you can visit the DEWA website or any smart application and enter your Ejari number to continue with the payment. It's important to note that while Ejari is linked to DEWA, it is not a requirement for all services.
For example, if you are looking to set up a new connection or transfer an existing one, you will not need an Ejari certificate. In conclusion, Ejari is linked to DEWA when connecting to the service. All customers are required to obtain their Ejari for moving services without having to visit it. Once certified, they will receive a welcome note from DEWA with the account number and link to pay the security deposit.
