Land­lord: I ask for rent in one cheque be­cause sub-letting ten­ant scammed me

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

“There are more good ten­ants than bad. Of­ten a ten­ant is loyal to a land­lord who re­spects them and treats them fairly. Of course there are some bad ten­ants, there are in ev­ery coun­try. The risk should be equally shared be­tween both par­ties to the con­tract. I have four prop­er­ties be­ing rented in the UK and I take monthly rental, I am also re­spon­si­ble for all re­pairs, how­ever mi­nor, as well as the real estate fees, I also can­not cash the de­posits or re­tain them un­less it’s some­thing se­ri­ous and agreed by the gov­ern­ing bod­ies. In Qatar it is the norm to pay monthly cheques in ad­vance, in ad­di­tion if you are ter­mi­nated and your com­pany can­cels your visa and you exit the coun­try the land­lord re­turns all cheques, as per real estate reg­u­la­tions.”

JANE CARTER

“Land­lords have it sooo easy here. Nowhere else in the world do you have to pay in 1 or 2 cheques fully up­front for the year...stop WHIN­ING Mr land­lord and en­joy the fact that you are bet­ter off than 99 per cent of the rest of the land­lords in the world. When the mortage sys­tem re­laxes here soon with all the af­ford­able projects com­ing up, you will prob­a­bly have to give 6 cheques to get a ten­ant so suck it up while you got it good.”

RAY MOND

“There should firstly be a law reg­u­lat­ing these as­pects, for land­lords not to take ad­van­tage and for ten­ants to com­ply. Sub rent­ing should not be al­lowed. And rents should be monthly, as work salaries are.”
