Let’s get down to the legalities - every single real estate broker at Allsopp & Allsopp holds a license to sell or rent property in Dubai. This license is provided by the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) providing that real estate brokers show adequate competency in their RERA exam. Exams are renewed yearly to ensure brokers are up to date with the latest real estate laws and legislation within Dubai.
We know how frustrating it can be for you as a tenant to find a property online which meets your criteria only, when you call the broker they advise you it has already been rented. At Allsopp & Allsopp we like to provide you with quality property listings. All of our properties listed on property portals in Dubai hold a trakheesi number. A number which verifies the property as being available for rent in Dubai and the seller has approved the marketing of the property. With Allsopp & Allsopp, you can trust that you are being shown around the exact property you clicked on online.
Allsopp & Allsopp brokers will not sit still. They will strive to find you a home which meets your criteria and will go above and beyond to ensure you are getting it for the best price. We have over 300 brokers potentially working on your behalf to help ensure you find the home you have been looking for in no time. Every day, our offices are communicating to ensure both buyers and tenants alike are spoken to about different properties in different offices ensuring the maximum return for all involved.
We have an in-house property management department who manage a large portion of the properties we list for rent. Renting a property in Dubai that is managed can take away some stress when maintenance issues and perhaps any disputes that may occur. Allsopp & Allsopp property managers will ensure everything is ready for your move in day to ease the process and get you all settled in as soon as possible. They will be on hand when you need any assistance with your rental property – just a phone call away!

Rent property in Dubai with the help and guidance of a team that has moved tens of thousands of families into homes since 2008! Read on for our step by step guide to renting an apartment or villa in Dubai for the first time.
Calculating a budget is the first and most important step in the rental process in Dubai. You can use this budget as a base in which you can begin your search.
When calculating a rental budget, please keep in mind the fees that go along with the rental process in Dubai - 5% of the total rental value will be needed for a deposit and 5% will be needed for agency fees subject to a minimum fee of AED 5000.
Think about the essentials you require from your rental home. Are you looking for an apartment or a villa in Dubai? Which area would you prefer? How many bedrooms do you need? Think of the driving distance to the nearest schools or your workplace.
Be prepared to compromise! It is very rare that a property will tick every box so put this list in order of importance and narrow down your search to within your criteria guidelines.
It is paramount for you to find a real estate broker in Dubai who you can trust and build, not only a professional but friendly relationship with. It is so important that you feel you can have an open and honest conversation with your broker.
Our brokers are trained to offer impeccable service to our clients and genuinely enjoy getting to know you all. At Allsopp & Allsopp, our speciality is listening to your needs and wants and matching you appropriately to the right community and perfect property.
As we are involved in thousands of leases each year, we have perfected our moving process into a well-oiled machine which is organised and thought out for you.
The viewing process can often be rather overwhelming, and it is easy to get excited about a property and forget to ask the questions you had in your head before you walked through the front door. Allsopp & Allsopp advise you to write down a potential list of questions to ask your broker about the property you are viewing.
Alternatively, you may dislike a property because of one or two factors but don’t rule it out completely. Voice your concerns to your broker, they may be able to come up with a solution as I am sure they have experienced something very similar in the past.
Once you have found a property to rent in Dubai, make a decision on what you would like to offer. Put the offer to your broker and they will start the negotiating process with the landlord. This is the most nerve-racking time, but your Allsopp & Allsopp broker has it under control and will keep you updated imminently with every advance.
To seal the deal your agent will talk you through the documents needed. Make sure you have an Emirates ID, passport and visa. Take your time to check the contract thoroughly before signing, if you have any questions or queries our brokers can clarify.
It is now time to register your rental agreement in Dubai through EJARI which means ‘your rent’ in Arabic. Your broker will talk you through this process and assist you with the documents. Allsopp & Allsopp also have a home move service who will be in touch after the contract signing and will make you aware of which permits are needed in order to move forward.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) will need to be registered under your name and it is a good idea to connect your internet before you move in. Our home move team can arrange this for you for a small fee.
Congratulations, you have successfully rented a property in Dubai! Be aware of the move in policies put in place by the community or building security. Once in, put your feet up and enjoy your new home!!
