Tenant's Guide

1. Set a budget

And choose an area by doing research online – beach or boulevard? Tower or terrace?

2. Size up

Decide on how many rooms, if your furniture will fit and what facilities you require. Need a balcony, pool or a stunning view?

3. Meet our experts

And get out to do some viewings. Inspect each property carefully including air conditioning, wiring and plumbing.

4. Found it!

Now it's time for the admin stuff – we'll tell you what you need, but prepare your Emirates ID, passport and visa.

5. Secure your property

Be prepared to pay a security deposit. Get your cheque book ready and read your contract carefully before signing.

6. Register your Ejari

This is the registration of your rental agreement – don't worry, your agent will tell you how to do this.

7. Connect your DEWA (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority)

And choose an internet provider – some buildings only have one provider so check before you commit.

8. Move-in day!

And relax…the place is yours!
