Agent told me I needed to pay Dhs25,000 de­posit to be al­lowed a dog in villa

7 Days in Dubai - - ENTERTAINMENT -

For the past 2 years I have been liv­ing in a villa in Dubai. We signed up via an agent, so we never met or spoke to the owner di­rectly. Re­cently we asked per­mis­sion to have a pet (as per ten­ancy agree­ment). The re­sponse came via the agency: yes, we can have a puppy un­der a num­ber of rea­son­able con­di­tions. One thing sur­prised me though: they asked for a de­posit of AED 25,000. We have al­ready paid de­posit for the rent and we have pre-paid full 12 months ahead. Is there any reg­u­la­tion that re­quires de­posit for pets? Con­cerned Dubai
