Ejari is an essential part of the rental process in Dubai. It is a system that guarantees openness and transparency between landlords and tenants, fully integrating rental contracts into the legal system. The word “Ejari” translates to “My Rent”, which gives us a clear idea of what this system is all about. The Ejari certificate must be completed by the landlord and can only be done once for each rental agreement.
It is necessary to register a new Ejari when renewing a contract, even if you are staying in the same apartment. The process of registering through Ejari is simple and requires little technical knowledge, introducing the basic details of the agreements. Ejari is also essential for other related processes, such as sponsoring your family, parents, domestic staff, etc. To finish Ejari, all you have to do is prepare several documents before going to the center.
You can also call 800-4488 or download the Ejari app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, which will allow you to upload the documents directly. The delivery time for your Ejari certificate is usually fast if you and your landlord have used the Ejari app. In most cases, once you have completed the application and submitted the necessary documents, you will receive your Ejari in a day or two. The Ejari certificate also ensures that both tenant and landlord rights are met in case of a conflict.
The Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) launched Ejari to control and facilitate the rental market in Dubai. There are five Ejari offices in Dubai; you can enter without an appointment and present the relevant documents provided by your real estate agent or landlord.
