Changes to Abu Dhabi Rental Process

Published: Apr 17, 2017

In February 2016, Abu Dhabi announced it was going to collect a municipality fee from tenants (like Dubai’s housing fee) of 3 percent of the annual rent, charged in 12 installments.

This process was put into effect January 2017 when tenants received an Abu Dhabi Distribution Company bill with several installments to be paid at once. 

However, based on bills seen, it’s only back-charged to the beginning of one’s current lease: should the lease start/been renewed between February 2016 and February 2017, they’re not currently being charged for the previous lease period.  As there was no official government communication on the process, it may be subject to change.
