Do real es­tate agents have any ethics at all?

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

We re­newed our con­tract with the same agent, same land­lord. Ac­cord­ing to the RERA cal­cu­la­tor no rental in­crease was due yet the agent still tried to co­erce an in­creased rent from us, we ob­vi­ously stuck to our guns and re­fused. Af­ter a while we had an is­sue with the wa­ter tank pump and the agent sim­ply said that we re­newed our con­tract with­out main­te­nance. While it is our re­spon­si­bil­ity to check the pa­per­work, where is the busi­ness ethics? Al­ways read your con­tract be­fore sign­ing.
