FAQs

We don’t know Dubai and Abu Dhabi at all, and we don’t know in which area we want to live. What can you recommend?

We will discuss your requirements and your budget, enabling us to recommend several areas of Dubai and Abu Dhabi that correspond to your specific search criteria.

We are in a rush, and are moving to UAE in less than a month, can you help?

Yes, we can. We can organise property viewings for you at short notice, for properties available immediately. You will be able to move in once the paperwork and arious formalities have been completed.

Can we view properties during weekends?

We could show you possible options, however reputable real estate agents don’t work over the weekend – Friday and Saturday. Hence to make best use of your time and see a variety of housing options, we recommend doing the home search on weekdays. They will also be able to suggest alternative properties, should the targeted ones not be available anymore on the day of viewings.

How many properties do you recommend for us to view?

Our secret is in the preparation of your search: ahead of your viewings, we already present you with a pre-selection of properties. Once we understand your requirements, we will be able to refine our selection for the day of your viewings, and only present you with properties that you could potentially like. Once you complete the orientation tour, and then narrow down housing to one or two locations, viewing of around 16 to 18 properties will give you a good understanding of the available options helping you to finalise.

Do we have to pay any fees to estate agents?

Tenants has to pay 5 % of rental charges as real estate charges.

Do you receive commissions from landlords or estate agents?

Never! This is the difference between a relocation agent and a property hunter. We have no interest with a particular estate agent or landlord. This guarantees an objective search, made to your requirements, and we search the entire market for you.

We heard that, in Dubai, you have to decide very quickly whether you want to take a rental property – is it true?

Absolutely. The property market in Dubai is very fluid, and there are usually several potential tenants for each property. That is why we recommend that you decide within 24 hours maximum following your viewing. Most of our clients will decide on the same day.

When shall we start viewing properties?

We recommend that you conduct your viewings between 2 and 4 weeks prior to the date that you wish to move in and closer to when you have the visa stamped in passport as this is a criteria in order to sign your lease.

I don't know much about tenancy agreements in the Dubai, can you help?

We will check the agreement on your behalf and ensure compliance with RERA authority (Dubai Real Estate and regulatory authority) and let you know if there are any points that you need to be aware of or that need to be negotiated.

When you say you will assist with home search, what all will this cover?

We are here to ease out with all the administrative steps and ensure all the points are checked when moving to your home, so we will be completely involved with the lease negotiation, property review, snag list preparation, follow up with agent / landlord to ensure works are completed, property move in inspection, taking pictures and complete handover report.
