Frequently asked questions

Get started →

How does your digital lock work?
When you list your property with Urban, we secure it with an Urban lock so tenants can visit on their own schedule – all they need is their phone. 
The installation process is easy, safe and secure.

Urban locks collect data on viewings and help rent out your property faster. Once rented, we’ll install the original lock and handover the keys to your new tenants.

How much does Urban charge to list my property?
Urban is completely free for landlords whose properties are onboarded ahead of October 2020. 
After then, it's a one-time charge of AED 975 per listing.

This payment goes towards getting the property cleaned, inspected, and photographed, in addition to installing the digital lock and getting maximum reach for your property.

How do payments and collections work?
Urban collects rent from tenants online through credit/debit card or direct debit. The rent is then disbursed to landlords via bank transfer on the following Wednesday it is received. Always within 9 working days.

Do online payments give me less protection than checks?
Whether you collect rent online or by check, you get the same legal protection based on your tenancy contract. Checks are often rejected due to misspelled names, wrong dates, and signatures that don’t match.

In case of rental disputes, both checks and online payments are handled through the Rental Dispute Committee at the Dubai Land Department.

Can other brokers access my property?
Yes, if they download and use Urban. You'll be able to access visitor logs for added security and visibility.

What landlords have to say about us

I used Urban from April 2020 when the lockdown started in Dubai as I struggled to get people to rent my properties. With Urban contactless viewings were possible and I was happy to find many tenants for one of our villas so quickly. Also, I had all the documents signed electronically without the need to visit any offices.

Urban really went out of their way to rent out my properties. High quality photographs, great virtual tours, and expert insights. Highly recommended.

Sameer S.

I'm really enjoying the overall experience of having my units managed by Urban. From the start, Urban has made the leasing process seamless by allowing easy viewings to tenants. Also seeing my property returns on my dashboard has made it easy to manage my cash flows.

Urban Property Managers walk you through every step of leasing your property so you can maximize its value, find the right tenants, and make your property work for you. Not the other way around.
