EJARI means ‘My Rent’ in Arabic. But technically it means a revolutionary system that shall move Dubai real estate sector to be one of the best regulated rental market in the world.
EJARI is the new initiative of RERA to regulate and facilitate the Rental Market of Dubai. This is a new system that will make provisions of Law No. 26 of 2007 effective that is regulating the relationship between Landlords and Tenants in Dubai. This will require all individuals and companies acting as landlords to register tenancy agreements using EJARI.
RERA has announced that with the effect of 14 March 2010, all rental / lease contracts for Dubai properties must be registered through its new EJARI online portal. The EJARI electronic registration web service is designed to meet the requirements of the law and RERA’s vision and mission to establish a robust regulatory system for the rental market and protect the rights of everyone involved. .
Its state-of-the-art online registration system offers full protection of their rights to all parties with tenancy agreement. It ensures these rights are recognized, upheld, and enforced by all Government agencies. It establishes full transparency between landlord and tenant, fully integrates rental contracts into the legal framework and opens up the possibility of being able to revise these contracts seamlessly in the event of disputes .
The Ejari system provides a full portfolio of services beyond registering the initial lease agreement. Renewals, cancellations, transfers and terminations can all be logged. Ejari will ensure rental agreements are fair and transparent to the parties involved and that their terms and conditions are given full weight .
How it works?
Registration through Ejari is a simple process requiring little technical knowledge and that only the basic details of agreements are entered. These include information such as details of the property, the name of the rental company, and terms of the agreement. Once the agreement is entered into the system and registered it is allocated a unique barcode which acts as its reference throughout the life of the contract. RERA will keep its own record of the agreement and update changes to the register as these occur.
