Technical Check and Measurements
Try to carry a measuring tape and know the exact measurements of your furniture and fittings that you would move to the property. Also look for any signs of bad upkeep and maintenance of the property to avoid issues later on.
Offer and Documentation
Once you like a property make an offer on it and ask the broker to what documents are required from your end and the landlords end to do the paperwork for the property:
Payment and Registrations
Once a tenancy contract is signed you may handover post-dated rental cheques and security deposit and agency fee payments. Register with Ejari, DEWA, Chiller Company and any relevant utilities and get an NoC from the owner addressed to the building management to let you move in to the property.
Always ask your broker (or Landlord) to be present at the time of handing over the keys to you at the property and to do an inspection and inventory checklist to avoid any issues later on.
