(Ejari is a system that is governed by RERA to make registration of rental/lease agreements easy and accessible to Owners and Real Estate Management Companies of various categories)
To register with Ejari, take your initial approval certificate and other documents required by the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) to any authorized service centre . You will need to submit the attested contract later to Dubai DED and proceed with the process of issuing the trade license.
