From downtown Dubai to the coast of Abu Dhabi, we offer a wide selection of properties for rent in the Emirate.
Housing in the UAE is easy to come by, but costly, since the city-states of Dubai and Abu Dhabi attract so many expats. While the UAE's average rent has decreased by 30% in recent years, expats can still expect to spend nearly half of their salary on rent alone. Many UAE businesses provide accommodation for their workers, but some only provide a stipend.
Various styles of houses are available in the UAE. High-rise apartments, villas for rent within gated communities, and townhouses are all options. Rental contracts in the UAE usually last one year and bear a hefty penalty if they are broken. Many landlords need a year's worth of pre-dated checks as well as an initial deposit of up to three months' rent. Since short-term rentals are abundant in the UAE, expats should visit a property in person before signing a contract.
