Dubai Residents Worry As Rent Prices Rise Across The City

Article Featured Image

It’s a good time to be a landlord… but the same can’t be said for tenants.

Since the second half of 2021, rent prices have been soaring like wild birds across Dubai. From hotel and residential apartments to villas and studios, rents all over town have shot up by 10% and in some places, even more. Rent in Plam and Dubai Marina has surpassed 30%, which is well above the percentage listed on Dubai Land Department’s RERA rental index.

According to Gulf News, The Palm has seen a rent hike of 36%, Jumeirah Park by 25%, and The Lakes by 21%.

This steep incline in rent is the result of an influx of new residents ‘fueling the demand’ for residential properties

Moreover, the boom in Dubai’s residential property market is another factor that adds to rental hikes, giving landlords the leeway to seek far more money from their existing renters in high-demand areas than the official rental index

Popular to contrary belief, Summer months in Dubai will NOT see a drop in rents of residential units

At this point, even local brokers can confirm that buying a house may be cheaper in the long run in comparison to renting a property on a yearly basis.

If you’re looking to dispute your rent, you can contact the Rental Disputes Settlement Centre at Dubai Land Department.
