How to Rent an Apartment in Abu Dhabi?
If you are looking to rent a flat in Abu Dhabi, find available units through searching online using Bayut. A number of properties are listed on Bayut by real estate agents from where you can choose the apartment of your choice and budget using the filters on the site or the Map View feature. The next step is to sign the tenancy contract in which you can decide the payment plan mutually. The most common and preferable method of paying the annual lease for flats for rent in Abu Dhabi is post-dated cheques. The number of cheques can vary from four to anywhere between six to eight or even twelve in some cases. Tenants must discuss the payment plan with the landlord before renting an apartment.
Costs Associated with Renting an Apartment in Abu Dhabi
Once you have found the apartment of your choice, you will have to confirm your interest by paying the annual lease and other costs associated with renting a property in Abu Dhabi. Renters have to pay around 2% to 5% of the rental price as a commission to the real estate agent/agency and a security deposit which is usually 5% of the rental price. The security deposit is refundable once the contract is over. However, the owner keeps the right to deduct the maintenance fees from the deposit if there are damages to the property.
Similar to Ejari in Dubai, a Tawtheeq contract is required for a tenancy agreement in Abu Dhabi. Tawtheeq registration is different from the one in Dubai as it is the landlord or real estate agent who will register the contract rather than the tenant. For the registration process, one can visit the online portal or the Customer Service Centre at the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City if you want to register in person. The property registration fees of a leasable property is AED 1,000 while one has to pay AED 100 for a new tenancy contract registration or renewal of a tenancy contract.
When moving into an apartment, the Tawtheeq contract is required for the connection of water and electricity from the Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC). Once the landlord/real estate agent registers the residential contract, the ADDC will be informed automatically about the new connection. One must check two days before the starting date of the contract that the ADDC has received the request for connection or not. To set up the connection, a security deposit of AED 1,000 needs to be paid in the first bill.
Other charges related to renting a flat in Abu Dhabi is district cooling or chiller fees for the use of air-conditioning. Tabreed and ista are two major district cooling suppliers in Abu Dhabi. The upcoming projects by the Abu Dhabi Department of Energy (DoE) will set up a complete integrated system for district cooling in the region. On the other hand, one can also rent a flat in Abu Dhabi with chiller free services in which the tenant does not have to pay for the cooling/air conditioning of the apartment.
