Step 1: Discuss with your Property Consultant & Understand the Rental Laws

Dubai follows strict laws governing renting, including the requirements for tenancy contracts, security deposits, rental hikes & more. Discuss with our property consultants in Dubai to understand your role as a landlord and comply with all legal requirements.

Step 2: Do a Market Research & Set a Fair Rental Price

Conduct market research on the rental prices in your area to determine a fair rate for your property. While setting a price for your property, consider factors like location, size, and other amenities.

Step 3: Advertise your Property

Now it’s time to take your property in front of the tenants. You can advertise your property on online portals and other real estate platforms to reach potential tenants. You can hire a marketing specialist to advertise your property, as they will use various campaigns to spread the word about your property rental in Dubai.

Step 4: Screen for Potential Tenants

Conduct background checks on potential tenants, including verifying their employment and financial stability. This will help ensure you rent to responsible tenants who can afford the rent.

Step 5: Create a Tenancy Contract

Use a standard tenancy contract provided by Dubai's Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) and ensure that it includes all necessary clauses, such as the rental amount, security deposit, and maintenance responsibilities.

Additional Things to Comply by the Landlord

  • It is the landlord's responsibility to maintain the property in good condition. This includes addressing maintenance issues and conducting regular inspections to ensure the property is well-maintained.
  • Ensure that your tenants pay their rent on time and take appropriate action if they fail.
  • If your tenant wishes to renew their lease, being a landlord, you have to renew the tenancy contract and adjust the rent as per the legal requirements.

Following this Landlord guide to ensure that you rent out your property in Dubai easily & get higher ROI from the tenants.
