If you're hunting for an apartment to rent in Dubai this summer, you may just find yourself a cracking deal.

Family budget cuts, job losses and the arrival of new homes on the market are forcing prices down.

Tenants are driving a hard bargain with their landlords, particularly when it comes to the number of cheques.

We'll be bringing readers a regular feature about properties for rent that may catch your eye.

Some are affordable, while others are luxury - but all have seen a steep reduction in price.

Here's the Six of the Best we found, in conjunction with HMS Homes, after scouring the property market this week.
