Many Dubai homeowners who wish to live near urban centres choose townhouses for rent as a balance of affordability and privacy. A typical single family villa is larger and comes with a yard, but if you want to be near the city centre of Dubai these are rarer and expensive. Urban townhouses are therefore a popular option. And the leaser of a townhouse truly has all the space from the walls in.
Popular across the world
Looking globally, common in urban areas, townhomes vary widely by city and region. Whole blocks of row-houses (another term for townhomes) are common in densely populated east coast cities, as well as in San Francisco. But townhouses can also be free standing. Townhouses for rent in Dubai typically have a unique front and back entrance, is multiple stories, and has one or two shared walls.
The exact definition of a townhouse is murky. Some townhomes have homeowners’ associations much like a condo. An HOA will likely cover some of the maintenance costs for grounds and other shared areas, but in exchange, you give up some of your control. Even if your townhouse only has one shared wall, you will still have to share some control and cost with the owner next door.
