Tenancy Contract Attestation
You need tenancy contract attestation in UAE if you have a home and you wish to have a section of your property rented by a family member, friend or tenant. You also need attestation for a tenancy contract if you’re a property manager, running a placement service for tenants in UAE, or you’re a tenant who’s currently looking at renting a property.
A tenancy contract is an agreement between a tenant and a landlord. The contract sets out everything that’s been agreed by both the tenant and landlord about the tenancy. It has to then be processed for attestation with the authorities. Take note: a tenancy contract for attestation in UAE has to be in writing. A landlord has to provide a tenant copies of the contract prior to when the tenancy begins. Tenants and landlords in UAE can’t avoid obligations by not creating an agreement in writing for the tenancy.
A tenant has to read the tenancy contract prior to signing it. It has to include all agreed terms and conditions. In the event that you have found a condition that you don’t fully understand, it is important that the document isn’t signed and attested. Seek advice from a lawyer first.
