Clarification for Tenants

The Director General of the Fujairah Municipality, Eng Rashid Hamdan, clarified that the tenants have the right to accept or reject a rent hike, before referring the cases to the rent committee for taking a final decision on the matter.

Hamdan said that the detailed note that was issued along the new rent cap law, after approval from His Highness Shaikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, the Ruler of Fujairah and the Member of Supreme Council, clearly stated that the annual rent hike has been capped at ten percent.

He added that any new contract that has not been attested by the concerned department will not be honoured by the Municipality, in case there is a dispute.
