Frequently Asked Questions

If landlord increases rent illegally, approach Rent Dispute Committee

Q:
We have been staying in Abu Shagara, Sharjah, for the last four years. We started at Dh25,000 per annum for a two-bedroom apartment, including parking charges of Dh2,000. Every year, our landlord increased the parking charges by Dh1,000. At the end of three yeas, our rent was hiked to Dh28,000, and now we are paying Dh34,000. Soon, we are expecting the rent to be between Dh43,000 to Dh45,000.
If we go to Sharjah Municipality's Rent Dispute Committee, will we get some justice?

A: It may be noted that, in accordance with the notification of the Sharjah Municipality, a landlord may increase the rent of a leased property only after completion of three years from the date of the commencement of the tenancy/lease contract.

Thereafter, any further increase in rent may be effected at the end of two years. You may, therefore, try to prevail upon your landlord not to increase the rent this year, as he had already done so last year. Further, it is learnt that the Sharjah Municipality has a Rent Dispute Committee that acts as the forum for addressing all disputes relating to rental between landlords and tenants.

All disputes pertaining to rents of leased properties must be filed with the Rent Dispute Committee. In view of the above-mentioned conditions, it may be advised that if your landlord refuses to accept your request for a reprieve this year, or if there is no amicable settlement between you and your landlord on the issue of rent, you may consider approaching the Rent Dispute Committee of Sharjah Municipality.

Q:
I understand that at the time of renewing a flat, I should pay not more than Dh260 for renewal. The agent at International City asked me for Dh1,000 to Dh1,500 to renew the contract. I stayed for one year and the agent is asking me paint the studio apartment or pay Dh250. I went to the police station whereby I have been told to pay Dh150 for the painting. Is this rule applicable in Dubai?

A: As a general rule, a tenancy contract should be renewed on the same terms and conditions unless the parties to the contract otherwise agree. If the parties do not agree, the increase must be approved by the Rent Committee. A landlord/agent cannot increase the rent or related expenses without obtaining a verdict from the Rent Committee.

Furthermore, on one hand, while the law imposes an obligation upon the landlord to hand over the property in good condition, on the other hand, the law obliges the tenant to take care of the leased property. No person, including the agent or landlord, is allowed to impose a fine or decide the value of damage without obtaining a valid verdict from the Rent Committee. If the condition of the paint is normal and comes under normal wear and tear, it is the landlord’s responsibility. Otherwise, it will be your responsibility.

It is worthy to note here that in case of dispute between you and the landlord regarding its condition, the dispute should be referred to the Rent Committee.

Q: Where can I buy Sharjah Municipality Tenancy Contract from?

A: Sharjah Municipality Tenancy Contract form available at Emirates Post Branches on payment of Dh50.
