Negotiate In Rent:

Rent prices have been falling in recent years in Abu Dhabi. One should negotiate the price, especially if one has seen apartments in the same building for lower prices. There has been a rise in the supply, so reductions in the rent are negotiable. Individuals could even ask for extra perks like one or two months of free rent, multiple cheque options, and voucher retail.

Moving Into an Apartment:

Terms and conditions of the contract have to be agreed upon by the tenant and owner. After the owner has signed the contract, the tenant must write cheques with the agreed-upon dates and hand them to the owner.
The first cheque is to be dated two days before the moving date, so the landlord can assure that money has been transferred to their account before keys are handed to the agent. The agent then checks if the house is clean and maintained well before handing the keys to the tenant.

Documents required:

Copies of the tenant's passport, UAE residency, and Emirates ID are required to receive an offer letter. The offer letter is to be signed after paying the security deposit to block one's apartment. If an individual has just moved to the UAE, the agent helps settle for their passport copy until their residency and ID card is issued. The final contract won't process without the residency and ID card.

Legal Registration:

After the complete documents are submitted, the tenant will be legally registered. The Abu Dhabi Distribution Company will set up the amenities like water and electricity. If registration is pending, one must show their passport, Emirates ID, and a copy of the signed rental contract to the municipality. The ADDC will send an activation code, and a deposit of Dh1,000 is to be paid online.
