Registering the Lease

Find out about registering the lease and what to do in the event of a rental dispute...

After the contracts have been signed, the landlord must register a copy of the agreement with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Agriculture.

The landlord must also pay the associated registration fee, which is one percent of the annual rent, and face a fine if they do not do this within 30 days following the signature of the lease.

Any disputes between tenant and landlord should be taken to the Rental Dispute Settlement Committee (located next to Rawdat Al Khail Park).
