When it comes to the process of Ejari registration in Dubai, it is the tenant who is responsible for completing the process and bearing the cost. This is a point of confusion between landlords and tenants, as per the RERA regulations. The landlord is responsible for registering the Ejari, while the tenant is responsible for paying the cost associated with it. Both landlords and tenants are equally responsible for selecting and registering a lease agreement with Ejari before or as soon as the lease begins.
In most cases, a consultant who acts as a mediator between both parties can take responsibility for registering the Ejari, however, this is an additional service and any compensation for it must be mutually agreed upon by both parties.
