no tenancy contract illegal?? (Dubai)

hi all,

fresh in dubai and would appreciate your advice on this:

i have found a studio in a villa through an agency. landlord does not want to have a tenancy contract.

i like the studio and am not worried about my rights: i will be paying monthly and do not mind being kicked out on short notice.

my only concern is if it is illegal for me not to have a tenancy contract? or will i need it for any reason?

by the way, i was told by an official that i do not need it for my visa application.

many thanks!
