Property title deeds mandatory for DEWA account
A property title deed is now mandatory for a real estate owner to open his account with DEWA (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority) account.
Several real estate brokers in Dubai have begun issuing notices to their clients, advising them to apply for a title deed from Dubai Land Department. A Dubai-based brokerage firm, FAM Properties, has issued notices to their client, saying, it is now mandatory for all landlords to have title deed of their properties issued from Land Department, so that DEWA could register any new accounts under a tenantís name.
DEWA will reject registration of any account for any property that does not have a copy of its title deed. Therefore, all landlords are requested to apply for title deeds at the earliest, it said.
A DEWA executive revealed that, at present, however, they have been opening accounts, if the prospective tenant can at least provide a sales and purchase agreement, instead of title deed.
A title deed is necessary for landlords to generate an Ejari, RERA- registered contract. Without submission of a registered contract, the Department of Naturalization and Residency, Dubai, will not even accept renewal applications for residence visas, it has been announced.
