Tagged: renting property dubai
I am expecting to be moving to Dubai within the next few months with my fiance. We will most likely be looking to rent. We are both slightly concerned and worried about this and any advice or information would be great!
Renting flats or villas in Dubai is expensive and can consume quite a bit of your income. It used to be that you needed a ýears rent upfront but some Landlords are now switching to a more global monthly rent. There are definitely areas that are cheaper than others and since the traffic can be heavy ( as in any city) it is best to focus on the areas where you will be working. Apartments in Dubai are often inclusive of AC so more affordable. Maybe let me know where you will be working and I can help narrow some good Dubai rental areas that might work in your budget?
I am going to be working in Jumeirah as a Teacher. Any advice from that area would be amazing!!!
OK, Jumeirah is quite an expensive area to rent in Dubai but am assuming as a teacher you have a rental allowance which helps. Take a look at Satwa, Sheikh Z. La Plage is a lovely Apt block which is quite convenient and about 80,000dhs for a 1 bedroom apartment. It’s just had a new flyover built near but is still close to La Mer and beaches. Bur Dubai and Deira are also options to look at. Though these have traffic. Good luck with your search. Minimum you are looking at 65,000 for a 1 bedroom apt. If your fiancee has a job all the better for you to save money in Dubai but you will have a lovely time providing you budget wisely and don’t get swept away by the glamour. It is possible to have a great lifestyle if you like to mix it up and don’t go to expensive places all the time ( easy to go mad). Be prepared for a 10% upfront rental deposit and a months rent in advance plus utilities deposits so have a healthy bank balance before coming. Realistically you are looking at shelling out at least 3,000 pounds to get you settled in a place and I am sure your school will help you with some of this cost.
My husband and I rent a place in Umm Suqueem ( quite close to Jumeirah ) for 190,000 dhs a year with pool. Bills are quite a lot in a villa though…
