Too easy for land­lords to bully ten­ants with evic­tion no­tice or rent in­crease

7 Days in Dubai - - PUZZLES -

I have re­cently heard from a friend that their land­lord is­sued them with an evic­tion no­tice in Novem­ber 2015, ter­mi­nat­ing their lease this Novem­ber. Their rental agree­ment ex­pires in May and the same Land­lord, via the agent has come back and asked for the rent, payable yearly, to be in­creased from Dhs200,000 to Dhs240,000. They are try­ing to ne­go­ti­ate down to 215,000 or they will have to leave the villa that they have lived in for the last five years. This is an un­for­tu­nate prac­tise by Land­lords, to dan­gle an evic­tion no­tice or rental in­crease over the heads of the ten­ants. There is lit­tle point in the tenant go­ing to court in this case as most peo­ple can’t af­ford the costs of a le­gal bat­tle over rents. It is re­ally not fair that the Land­lord is able to get an evic­tion no­tice so eas­ily, when he has no in­ten­tion of mov­ing in. It is also not worth our friends leav­ing their villa as re­moval costs plus gen­eral ex­penses will be near Dhs30,000. Some­thing needs to be done to tighten this sys­tem up. Liz Dubai My salary went in to the bank but it made no dif­fer­ence. Also the same prob­lem with Health/Med­i­cal in­surance. If there is a com­pany out there that is age friendly please let us know. Also over 60 fit and well Dubai pass­ing ve­hi­cles. This is highly re­quired for stop­ping crim­i­nals. Apart from this, they are en­dowed with the sev­eral lat­est tech­nolo­gies. So eat­ing, drink­ing, seat­belt wear­ing etc by the driver would be iden­ti­fied and fined ac­cord­ingly. Vis­i­ble 2 Dubai
