EJARI, which stands for “My Rent” in Arabic, is a revolutionary system initiated by the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) of the Dubai Land Department. It is designed to regulate and facilitate the rental market in Dubai, guaranteeing the rights of both tenants and landlords. The purpose of Ejari is to ensure transparency in the rental market system and to protect the rights of landlords and tenants in the city. It links rental contracts with the legal framework to maintain transparency in the rental market.
Registering through Ejari is a simple process that requires little technical knowledge and introduces the basic details of the agreements. Applicants using the Ejari online service do not need to go to an Ejari office, rental agency, or attend an Ejari training session. You can also call 800-4488 or download the Ejari app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, which will allow the tenant to upload the documents directly. Some of the typing centers open for Ejari registration are located in Al Manara, Za'abeel, Deira, Al Barsha Mall and Oud Metha.
It usually takes 1 to 2 days to obtain the Ejari certificate once the registration process has been completed and the required documents have been submitted. Keep in mind that if you want to renew your lease next year, you must complete Ejari's online registration for the new contract. The services included in the Ejari Renewal process and documentation are the same as those in the Ejari registration process. The Ejari lease agreement serves as proof of the validity of the lease and creates transparency in the Dubai rental market. Once the landlord approves the documentation through their account in the app, you'll receive the Ejari certificate in one to two business days.
Online document archiving, document control, payment of government fees and delivery of the Ejari certificate are available. EJARI is an essential system for other related processes such as sponsoring your family, parents, domestic staff etc. It is a great way to ensure that all parties involved are protected and that all agreements are legally binding.
