As land­lords we need to be fair to our ten­ants…

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

In re­sponse to SS ‘Try being a fair ten­ant and you’ll get a good land­lord’ (Let­ters, Oct 9), being a Land­lord I don’t agree with you. Let’s not gen­er­alise. Many of the ten­ants of my 55 prop­er­ties pay on time and those who have va­cated have not left the prop­erty in a mess. Yes I agree there is main­te­nance, which needs do be done but it never takes more than a week. I think you should change your main­te­nance com­pany who are re­ally slow and take “at least 1 to 2 months” to fix your prop­erty. I pre­sume you keep in­creas­ing the rent or are re­ally un­lucky that your ten­ants don’t stay more than a year or 2. At av­er­age my ten­ants stay for about 4-5 years. It’s high time we need to re­alise that ten­ants are rea­son­able too as long as we Land­lords are rea­son­able. SSSS UAE I wish she can fight for her right to live in an healthy, clean-pol­lu­tion free en­vi­ron­ment – may AL­LAH bless her with good health for her and her baby... smoke­free and healthy! Alia Ma­tuszyk Dubai pro­duce as much up-sale as pos­si­ble, sim­ple rea­son for you get­ting that ques­tion. If it is enough to an­noy you, then I feel sorry for you – life must be hard. Craid Vadi, UAE
