There is wide ranging commentary available to the public about the rights of tenants and the obligations of landlords, but there is limited practical advice which focuses on safeguarding the rights of landlords. At James Berry & Associates Legal Consultants, we highlight the top tips for landlords which touch on important practical points to note when placing properties on the rental market in the UAE, specifically in the Emirate of Dubai.
If a landlord wishes to evict their tenant, the eviction notice must be served on the tenant at least 12 months prior to the determined date of eviction. It has to be served through the Notary Public or by registered mail and must clearly state which ground the landlord is relying on for eviction of the tenant. It is recommended that any notice is served by Notary Public to ensure proof of delivery is available should a claim need to be filed in the Dubai Rental Dispute Settlement Centre.
At James Berry & Associates Legal Consultants, we assist both landlords and tenants through issues that they may face, whether it be a tenant resisting a rental increase or a landlord wishing to evict their tenant. We acknowledge the importance of ensuring that there is strict compliance with the terms of the tenancy contract both on the part of the landlord and the tenant. We work to ensure that the legal rights are safeguarded and that the landlord-tenant relationship is valued and retained.
