As a rule for all renters in Dubai, once your tenancy contract has been signed, make sure you submit your EJARI registration to get your official EJARI certificate and then maintain good relations with your landlord as always. In the event that you get served a rental increase, make sure it's not within 90 days of the contract expiring as this is illegal. Also use the rental increase calculator to see if the rent is valid to begin with and if its within the scope specified by the RERA rental index of Dubai.
