Land­lords need to be hon­est about prop­er­ties

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

Many prop­er­ties here are get­ting rather old and tired and main­te­nance in most of these can be on­go­ing. Most land­lords whether here or away are not proac­tive. This causes prob­lems when it comes to main­te­nance. There should be some plan in place here for all land­lords to sup­ply some kind of ‘main­te­nance re­port’ once a prop­erty is over a cer­tain age. Then prospec­tive ten­ants can in­spect this be­fore hand­ing over their hard-earned cheques and sign an an­nual ten­ancy con­tract. Most ten­ants here pay the first 500 or 1000 dhs for most re­pairs. Why should ten­ants pay for the up­keep of these old run­down places that are just given a lick of paint to make them look cared for? Tenant, Dubai
