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 had announced that beginning 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.
The state-of-the-art online registration system on EJARI offers full protection of the rights of all parties involved in the 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 is designed to ensure rental agreements are fair and transparent to the parties involved, and that the terms and conditions are given full weight.
