Default Renting Property

Hi there all.

Am a new member to the forum. Am currently considering positions to come and join you all out in Dubai, and cannot wait.

Unfortunately, not knowing where I am going to be based yet, but was hoping people might be able to send me links to some leasing agents in Dubai so that I can start my homework early, emailing site links would be appreciated, have looked at some (Landmark, DB Homes).

Next will be looking at schools as am bringing my wife and children with me.

Any other additional advice that you could possibly give would be most welcome.

Many thanks


Justin

Firstly, try to negotiate with your company to pay for the first 2 months accomodation...thats pretty standard around there parts.

Best thing to do, check out Dubizzle.com
That will give you an idea of what is available and at what price.

It would help if you knew where you will be working as ideally its best to be closer to your office due to a [email protected] road network and crazy-arse drivers

Check out this website too - it is mainly people advertising direct, so no agents fees, and they ensure that the listings are up to date which many of the other sites don't...

How old are your kids? schools really do depend on where you live, but many have waiting lists so you would need to get moving...

Welcome Justin! make sure you get a good contract with your new employer. Jammy is right, find out where your office is first and then work backwards from there! You need to start looking at schools ASAP. I will post a link to them all in a minute. Everything comes down to money out here unfortunately. Get as much housing allowance as you can, your gonna need it !!!

True...Emaar - our education is as good as our construction...

Might be a bit of a long shot, but could anybody advise as to what the rough guide would be to utility costs, with two kids and wife in the property with me

we have a two bed apartment - 300 dhs a month. In our villa we were paying 800 dhs a month, but it can vary. For some reason it is higher at the new developments.
