The three most common issues at that Dubai tenants face
are rent increases, evictions and rent disputes.
If your landlord was to increase your rent,
the one thing you should know is that the landlord must send you
a written notice at least ninety days before the expiry of your lease.
When it comes to evictions, if your landlord wants to evict
you from your property, make sure that he sends you
at least twelve months in advance, a notice of eviction, either through
a Notary Public or by registered mail.
Finally, when it comes to rent disputes, make sure you obtain a copy
of your Ejari contract, because should you get into
a dispute with your landlord, you will need that Ejari contract
to file a claim with the Rent Dispute Settlement Committee.
