We’ve also filmed residents in the UAE like you and me, who had legal questions they wanted an answer to. Legal consultant, Ahmed Odeh, gives some useful advice that’s worth listening in on!
Maroine’s landlord hasn’t paid his service charges. Can he use the facilities?
“My landlord has not paid his service charges for the property I’m living in.
And I don’t know what to do, because the community is not allowing
me to use the facilities such as the gym or the swimming pool.
So, is it my responsiblity to pay these charges?
What do I have to do?
Legal consultant, Ahmed Odeh:
“As a tenant, Maroine you have the full right to enjoy the use of the property
and all of its facilities. It is the landlord’s obligation to keep up-to-date
with the payments of his service charges. This is a matter which is strictly
between the landlord and the developer. The immediate solution for this
is to address the matter with the landlord and inform the property management
company for the building that you have no involvment in this
whatsoever, because you are the tenant. I hope this answered your question.”
