HOW TO INCREASE INCOME AND REDUCE RISKS

In the UAE, there are two types of licenses for renting out apartments: Long Term License (for rentals of no less than 1 year, governed by the Land Department), and Vacation Homes License (for rentals of any tenure from one day to a year, governed by the Ministry of Tourism)

StoneTree is proud to have both licenses to serve our clients. Very few companies in the UAE hold the Vacation Homes Licence.

ADVANTAGES
No Ejari burden

Long-term lease implies legally binding contractual commitment (Ejari). The owner relies on the tenant's decency. If the tenant is unable/unwilling to pay or has other ill intent, that tenant can be evicted only through court.

In case of a short-term lease, the apartment retains the vacant status, providing the flexibility to cancel the contract within 3 days to 2 months (depending on the reason for cancellation) - without any penalties.

Possibility to reside in the apartment

The owner or his/her family members, friends or colleagues, are free to reside in the apartment for any desired period.

High liquidity on the sale

The property's high liquidity is assured by: absence of a long-term (Ejari) burden; flexible process of viewing the property for potential buyers or investors; historically above market average rental income.

"5-star standard" condition of the property

Weekly inspections and maintenance, ensuring the apartment is in pristine condition, in accordance with DTCM standards.

Receive income before the sale

The owner avoids a situation where the property stays idle and does not bring income

Guaranteed income

We give a guarantee on income from the objects recommended by us.

THE ONLY DISADVANTAGE
Mandatory furnishing

The owner is required to fully furnish the apartment, in accordance with the Department of Tourism standards.

* furnished apartments cost 50 000 AED more expensive

But there is a solution:

1. We buy furniture for your apartments at our expense
2. Instead of buying, you can rent furniture

ADVANTAGES
Receiving advance payment

Payment is made in advance for the period of one month to one year. However, by law, the owner can administer no more than two months' rent, since the tenant can unilaterally terminate the contract by proiding a two-months' notice.

No furniture required

There is no need for furniture and interior

Disadvantages
Complicated to increase rent

Payment is made in advance for the period from one month to a year, however, according to the law, the owner has the right to administer funds for a period of not more than two months, since on the part of the tenant a long-term contract can be terminated on a unilateral basis with two months' notice.

Difficult to terminate contract

Highly cumbersome to terminate a long-term contract (by law, can happen in two cases: the owner is selling the property or intends to reside there - both with a minimum one-year notice). Strict and costly penalties for non-compliance.

Low liquidity on the sale

Long term contract is a burden on the real estate object in the event of sale. A minimum one-year notice to the tenant is required before the property is handed over to the new owner.

Object depreciation

Irrespective of the impact (damage) from long-term uninterrupted use of the property, the security deposit from the tenant to cover maintenance costs is capped at only 10% of the contract value.

Difficult to collect rental income

A personal cheque is not cash - it is merely a declaration of future payment. Issues with cheque validation are common. Disputes can be settled only in court.
