White goods are included
When you move in to a rented villa or apartment, expect nothing. It)s most likely your new home will not include carpets, curtain rails, a fridge, freezer, washing machine, dryer or cooker. Consider yourself lucky if it comes with a front door.
Sharia Law does not allow unmarried and unrelated members of the opposite sex to live together. Under Article 356 of the UAE Penal Code, living with a person of the opposite sex could result in a minimum of a year in jail. Only one adult is allowed in one bedroom, and a maximum of six people are allowed in each villa to avoid overcrowding.
Prior to November 9 2013, the Tenancy Law meant landlords were not allowed to increase rent by more than five per cent each year. The Executive Committee – the body that removed this cap – advise landlords to charge market rate, but do not specify what this is. The reality is that since the rental cap was abolished, rent has increased by approximately 16 per cent.
Article 20(3) of the Tenancy Law says you must give your landlord two months) notice, in writing, before your lease expires. Ben says this is best done by email – request the delivery receipt option – or by recorded delivery, so you can prove they have received the notice. Your landlord is required to do the same. If you reach the end of your tenancy and neither party has altered the terms of the tenancy agreement, then it will automatically renew on the same terms.
True. As long as you)re given proper notice, your landlord is not required to give you a reason for asking you to leave, according to Article 24 of the Tenancy Law.
Unless the landlord authorizes it in writing, subletting, where you rent from another renter, is not permitted. The penalty is eviction. Ben says The law doesn’t state a time frame so bailiffs or your landlord may just turn up at your door, but realistically they will give you one or two months’ notice.
