The parties to a tenancy contract in the Emirate of Dubai generally have to make use of the so-called EJARI tenancy contract. Exceptions might apply in free zones. The EJARI tenancy contract is a standardised contract which is drafted in a very generic manner and does not leave much room for individual stipulations. Consequently, you should always conclude additional terms complementing the EJARI tenancy contract. By these means, you can agree on matters concerning the handover of the premises, the security deposit, repair and maintenance as well as the termination of the tenancy.
