How to Rent a Villa in Dubai?
Searching for a suitable villa for rent in Dubai is pretty simple using Bayut. The first step is to search for villas using the different tabs and filters on the website and analysing the property based on your requirements. Once, you have chosen and connected to the real estate agent, it is time to negotiate and sign the tenancy agreement. Rents are generally calculated on a per-annum basis and paid in post-dated cheques. However, some realtors and landlords offer monthly scheduled payments for the convenience of tenants. Your landlord may ask for payment in one to four cheques, or more, it is advisable to check the terms and conditions in the tenancy contract beforehand.
Cost Associated with Renting a Villa in Dubai
There are a few other costs related to renting villas in Dubai besides the agreed-upon annual or monthly rent. If you choose to get a villa for rent through a real estate agent, they will charge their commission that generally ranges from 2% to 5% of the annual rent. The amount payable will be calculated by the agency. To avoid this cost, you can simply rent the property directly from the landlord. Security deposit is another cost associated with renting villas in Dubai. Generally, 5% to 10% of the annual rent is paid to the landlord as security to be utilised in case the property needs reconditioning when vacated. This amount is refundable depending on the condition of the property when the tenant moves out of the house.
While signing the tenancy agreement, your landlord will also need you to register for an Ejari, a government initiative by RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Agency) to manage tenancy contracts in Dubai. Each Ejari tenancy contract comes with a unique number used to get the electricity, water, gas, internet and phone connections. This will include a nominal Ejari registration or renewal fee of AED 215 + 5% VAT.
Another cost to consider is the cost of utility connections. There are chiller/district cooling fees (for the air-conditioning) considering the weather of Dubai. If district cooling services are provided, there will be a fee consisting of consumption charges based on metre readings, demand charge, fuel surcharge and connection fees as well as district cooling deposits. Emicool and Empower are the main district cooling and chiller services providers in Dubai. Some villas are chiller-free where the landlord boars the cost of chiller/district cooling services.
You also need to get utility connections through DEWA (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority) the upfront cost of connection and admin fee will be approximately AED 230. DEWA also charges a security deposit of AED 4,000 for villas which is refundable upon vacating the premises and adjusting final bills.
