The Sharjah Municipality began issuing new lessor’s cards on Thursday (March 9) to make it easier for landlords and tenants to complete rental formalities.
The new lessor’s card replaces a number of documents that landlords and tenants are required to submit for rental contract attestation in Sharjah.
Instead of submitting documents to have their rental contract attested, customers only need to present the card at the municipality.
The lessor’s card is issued at the Customer Service Centre of the Rental Regulation Department in Sharjah’s Industrial Area 5. Customers can also email email@example.com.
Applicants need to submit a copy of the property owner’s passport, Emirates ID and a copy of the property title deed. Real estate agents may also file an application on the property owner’s behalf and will need to submit the land plan, a copy of the real estate company’s commercial licence, ID card of the business licence owner, copy of a valid legal agency and a copy of the agent’s Emirates ID.
Ali Ahmed Abu Ghazien, director of the Rental Regulation Department, urged landlords and real
estate offices to apply for the card once a rental contract is signed by a tenant. ICA/Expat Media
