Ejari Registration

RERA has announced that from 14 March 2010 all rental/lease agreements in Dubai must be registered through the new online portal EJARI. Ejari registration online is designed to meet legal requirements and establish a robust management system for the rental market and protect the rights of all stakeholders. Ejari has been designed to ensure that rental agreements are fair and transparent to the parties involved and that their terms and conditions are fully considered. 

How It Works?

Signing up via Ejari is a straightforward process that requires little technical expertise and only requires basic agreement details such as property details, rental company name, and agreement terms. Once a contract has been entered into the system and registered, it will be given a unique barcode that will act as a reference for the duration of the contract. RERA will maintain its own record of the Agreement and update changes to the registry as they occur.
