An online rental survey launched on Monday will allow tenants to speak out about the Abu Dhabi market, which commands the highest rates in the UAE.

The 2009 Lease/Rent Abu Dhabi Rental Market survey is being conducted by property portal website

It will gauge opinion on the emirate’s leasing market by asking tenants whether prices are too high and if the 5% rent cap provides sufficient protection against sharp annual rent inflation.

Unlike neighbouring Dubai, Abu Dhabi has no rent index and uses a cap to control rent inflation.
