If you’re a tenant or landlord in Dubai, you have likely heard of Ejari! In this article, we will provide you with all the information you need to know about Ejari registration in Dubai. To cut a long story short, we will walk you through the system step by step to make sure all your questions are answered. Keep reading for more clarity about one of the main tenancy systems in Dubai.


What Is Ejari?

The word Ejari is an Arabic word that means “my rent”. However, in this context, it is an online registration system that registers tenancy contracts in Dubai. It was introduced by the Dubai Land Department (DLD) in 2007 to regulate the leasing process and to protect the rights of both tenants and landlords.

It is also a legal requirement for all rental agreements to be registered with Ejari. The system provides a platform for tenants and landlords to register their rental contracts and renewals online. 

Is Registering for Ejari Mandatory in Dubai?

Yes, Ejari registration is mandatory for all rental properties, including commercial and residential properties.

When Should You Renew Ejari?

Tenants should renew their Ejari when they are about to change the property they are renting or the period of leasing is over. For landlords, when they are about to get a new tenant.

In addition, you can do this step online by logging in through the app and submitting Ejari renewal documents in addition to the above-mentioned documents for Ejari registration.

The fee for your Ejari tenancy contract renewal in Dubai is the same as the registration cost. Moreover, they also give you the option of Ejari renewal through the trustees’ centers in Dubai, not just online. This guarantees you all the flexibility to choose the suitable option for you 

However, if your previous Ejari contracts are not submitted on the system before, you won’t be able to renew your current one. In this case, you should register your earlier tenancy contract first as per RERA regulations. 

Keep in mind that if you intend to renew your contract for the same place next year, you must complete the Ejari registration for the new contract. We recommend that you become familiar with the system, as it is used for all rental transactions, including renewals, cancellations, transfers, and terminations.
