It’s the responsibility of the tenant to pay the agreed-upon rent on time and keep the property in excellent condition. If the tenant wishes to make any modifications to the property, he or she must obtain permission from the landlord and, if necessary, comply with relevant Government regulations in Dubai.
The tenant needs to pay the agreed-upon security deposit to the landlord upon signing the tenancy agreement. This is meant to make sure that the rented property is properly maintained at the expiration of the tenancy contract. However, it is also the responsibility of the landlord to return the full amount if the property is left by the tenant in satisfactory conditions. In case maintenance work (due to the negligence of the tenant) is required, the remaining amount should be returned to the tenant at the expiry of the contract.
The tenant is required to surrender the rented property in good condition to the landlord at the end of the lease, other than ordinary wear and tear or damage caused by unanticipated events.
The tenant is responsible for all government fees and taxes associated with the use of the leased property, as well as any sub-tenant fees or taxes, unless otherwise stated in the tenancy contract. The renter is forbidden from subletting the property without obtaining written permission from the landlord.
