Better days for Dubai Real Estate industry are here. Since the passing of the new law by DREI (Dubai Real Estate Institution), we have seen a systematic and safe process in ensuring the advertised property is genuine, protecting both the landlords and end-users’ interest.
The law requires real estate companies to submit documents to apply for a permit in order to advertise a property either for buying a property or renting out a property. Applied through the Trakheesi system, the fee is borne by the assigned Real Estate brokers who need to submit the following:
1. Form A signed by the property owner, a document that authorizes the agent to advertise the property as per the price agreed upon
2. Title deed
3. Copies of ID (passport and/or Emirates ID) of the Property Owner or Representative
Upon submitting the requirements, Dubai Land Department will issue a unique RERA Permit No. and the brokers can now advertise.
Be it an office space for rent, a studio apartment, 2 or 3 bedroom apartment, property owners need to provide the documents listed above for each property they want to list for sale or rent, further to which the Real Estate agent will apply for the necessary permit to legally advertise the same. This will help increase trust in the broker from the client and the end customer as well as reduce fraud or false listing.
This regulation comes as a blessing in disguise for the bad press and name in the market due to the rouge agents with false listings and prices. Even though this may spell as a doom with regards to paperwork and cost, it will also help make the process of buying or renting a house, reliable and transparent.
Real Estate firms who are advertising properties without permit will be penalized and requires to pay a fine of AED 50,000.
