To keep a tab on fraud leasing activities and to safeguard interests and rights of tenants in the emirate, the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City, in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (DED), announced a mandatory regulation. It states that only licensed corporate entities and individuals in the city can undertake property management procedures. Applicable since July 2013, it ensures that individuals obtain commercial permits from DED to manage properties in the emirate. Moreover, unless investors have a certified relationship between property owners, they will not be allowed to lease units in the emirate.
