Jeddah — The rental agreement system, Ejar, is set to bring transparency in the residential sector and will end tenancy disputes after the Ministry of Labor and Social Development and the Ministry of Housing announced their plan to link the renewal or issuance of work permits with the authentication of house rent contracts in the Ejar network, according to experts.

Ejar is aimed at protecting the rights of tenants at all stages of the rental process.

The Ministry of Housing has intensified inspections of real estate brokerage offices in Jeddah and other cities across the Kingdom to check compliance with the new system.
