How to Cancel Ejari in Dubai Rest App

Ejari is a service in Dubai that solidifies rental agreements and protects the rights of those involved with the tenancy agreement. Ejari typically lasts for one year but can be renewed annually.

However, tenants have the option to end their rental agreement at any time, even before the year is up. This is all you need to know about the Dubai Ejari cancellation procedure.

When Can I Cancel Ejari In Dubai?

There are two ways you can cancel your Ejari contracts, whether you are a tenant or landlord:

  • Early termination of the rental contract
  • If the parties do not wish to renew the contract after it expires, they can cancel it.

If you don’t cancel your Ejari contract before it expires, you will have a more difficult time relocating (if you’re a tenant) or leasing out your property to someone else (as landlord).

The RERA law outlines that only one Ejari registration can be connected to a property at any given time. Thus, it is the duty of the landlord to cancel the previous tenant’s registration as soon as they move out.

How To Cancel Ejari

The Documents You Need To Cancel Your Ejari Registration Through The Real Estate Trustees Centre.

To cancel Ejari, you need the following:

  • Emirates ID of both parties
  • Ejari Certificate
  • Tenant’s passport
  • No Objection Certificate (NOC) by the landlord
  • Last DEWA bill issued to the tenant
  • Original unified tenancy contract
  • A termination letter from the property owner

If the tenant is a company, you must provide the owner and manager’s Emirates ID and trade registrations.

If you cannot obtain an Ejari certificate, a tenancy contract may be used as a replacement.

The Ejari cancellation NOC letter should contain the following details:

  • Name of the landlord
  • Building title
  • DEWA premise number
  • Plot number
  • Personal information of the tenant
  • A statement of vacancy
  • Signature of the landlord (matching the signature on his passport)
  • The company seal (if the landlord is a company)
Please note
  • The most significant aspect of the Ejari cancellation procedure is submitting the final DEWA bill. If any outstanding DEWA bills remain, the cancellation process
  • Make sure you either have a physical copy of the bill that says ‘Final Bill’ and ‘Paid,’ or a digital version of the “Green Bill” which can be found on DEWA’s website.

Additional Documents For Ejari Cancellation

Special circumstances may require additional documents. For example, you will need to submit the title deed if the property was sold and the buyer took over the lease during your tenancy. If you buy a property in the UAE and then sell it, you must notify the Ministry of Economic Development. The new owner must produce their Emirates ID

If someone other than the landlord signed the tenancy agreement, that person must also have a Power of Attorney form to demonstrate that they’re allowed to sign on behalf of the owner. The applicant must also submit their Emirates ID, residency visa, or passport.
