Dubai Real Estate agents need government approval for all property advertisements


With effect from 1st October 2016, Real Estate agents in Dubai will need to get approval from RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Agency) before they publish any print or online advertisements which includes all social media campaigns and property portal listings.

As a registered broker here in Dubai, Exclusive Links are licensed to advertise properties for sale and for rent but with effect immediately all advertisements must carry a permit number from RERA. Brokers must apply for these permits through RERA before any classified or online advertising is published using the DLD online Trakhees system.

Whilst this will be an administrative strain at the beginning, Exclusive Links supports the government’s directive which will clamp down on false advertising and reduce the number of agents duplicating and advertising without the correct instruction from landlords and sellers.

It is another move towards a healthier market place and industry clean up and Exclusive Links will communicate this change through to their valued customers.
 

Agencies that do not comply and have the corresponding permits will be dismissed, fined and face legal action.
