How to Rent a Villa in Abu Dhabi?
The first step to rent a house in Abu Dhabi is to search for available villas using Bayut. Tenants can find a number of properties listed by real estate agents on the online property portal with a detailed description of available facilities and amenities. The next step to rent a villa in Abu Dhabi is to sign the tenancy contract in which the payment method for the annual lease and other details are stated. Landlords/real estate agents usually demand post-dated cheques for an annual lease in Abu Dhabi. The number of cheques for paying the yearly lease of villas for rent in Abu Dhabi can vary from one to four to twelve in some cases.
Costs Associated with Renting a Villa in Abu Dhabi
Apart from the yearly leasing price of a house for rent in Abu Dhabi, there are other costs associated with renting a villa in the city. Once you have selected the property of your choice, you will have to pay 2% to 5% of the rental price as a commission to the real estate agent/agency. Along with the commission, the tenant will also pay the security deposit to the landlord which is usually 5% of the rental price. The security deposit is refundable but the owner reserves the right to deduct a certain amount if there are damages to the property.
Tawtheeq is a registration system for a tenancy agreement in Abu Dhabi. This process applies to anyone involved in renting a villa in Abu Dhabi to protect both the parties; tenant and landlord. The registration process for Tawtheeq is done by either the real estate agent or the owner of the property. One can visit the online portal or the Customer Service Centre at the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City to initiate the registration process. The registration fees of leasable property in Abu Dhabi is AED 1,000 while one has to pay AED 100 for a new tenancy contract registration or renewal of the contract.
Once you are registered with Tawtheeq, the Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) will set up the water and electricity connection. As the systems are linked together, ADDC will be informed automatically and there is no need to send a separate moving application. However, one must check that the ADDC has received the request for connection two days before the starting date of the contract. A security deposit of AED 1,000 will be paid in the first bill for setting up the connection.
Another charge related to renting a villa in Abu Dhabi is district cooling or chiller fees. Most of the villas for rent in Abu Dhabi have the connection through Tabreed or ista, two major district cooling suppliers in the emirate. In this case, the tenant is liable to pay for the consumption based on the meter reading. Some villas are chiller-free units where the landlord pays the charges for chiller/district cooling.
