Abu Dhabi landlords given deadline to adhere by the rules

The real estate landlords in Abu Dhabi have been warned against packing their housing units with too many tenants. According to the new rules by Abu Dhabi Municipality, the landlords should register their housing units at its offices under the new ‘Tawtheeq’ housing programme in-line with a decision by the Abu Dhabi Executive Council.

According to the Municipality, the landlords are given time until end of June this year, to complete registration of their units. Thereafter, the municipality will impose fines against all those who do not abide by the new rules.

The Tawtheeq programme bans renting of apartments and villas in Abu Dhabi to bachelors, as part of the emirate’s drive to ensure safety of residents.

As per the rules, the number of bachelor tenants should not exceed two in one room in any house or apartment or villa. All have been called to abide by the new rules to preserve the rights of landlords and tenants, the Municipality said.

The Municipality is in the process of setting up housing data network for the emirate. It has set up fee at Dh.100 for registering a tenancy contract, and Dh.1000 for registering housing data by landlords. All other fee are in the range Dh.5 and Dh.100.
