DUBAI – Tenants who have rent disputes with their landlords could be evicted within two days under new rules in Abu Dhabi.
The Rental Dispute Settlement Committee said it will allow landlords to quickly evict tenants who fail to pay their rent.
The committee will be able to issue a decision within two days, and a maximum of three weeks. The new rule will come into effect at the end of this week.
The move is intended to quickly resolve disputes and shorten court proceedings. Tenants can also appeal the decision within 15 days.
It will “create an attractive environment for real estate investment in Abu Dhabi” and “ensures simplification of procedures”, said Yousuf Saeed Al Abri, undersecretary at Abu Dhabi Judicial Department. GAD/Expat Media
