Leasing space in Ethiopia

Lease agreements in Ethiopia must be registered by the Acts and Documents Registration Authority, and a copy of the agreement must be given to the Customs and Revenue Authority. You will also need to provide a copy of Emory's certificate of registration to both authorities.

Landlords generally ask for lease payments (for a year or six months) in advance.

Currently, there are no zoning rules which apply to such cases, and residential flats are often leased for office purposes.
