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