In Abu Dhabi, can the landlord increase the rent without any limit?


Based on the Executive Council's decision no. (32) for the year 2012, all rent amounts from 10 November 2013 onwards are negotiated and agreed upon by the landlord and the tenant. Hence, the landlord can increase the rent without any limitation. However, the rental market will most likely determine the average rental increases and the maximum increase a landlord can impose on the tenant.
