How many people can stay in a villa?
Not exactly sure? That’s because the Dubai Municipality has just announced that there is no “one villa, one family” rule.

Hussain Nasser Lootah, the director general of the Dubai Municipality has just clarified that there is actually no rule dictating that only one family can stay in a villa, and that the municipality’s campaign was misunderstood.
“The municipality has started a campaign against overcrowding in villas to ensure the safety and security of residents,” he told Gulf News, adding that more than one family can stay in a villa.
But neither tenants nor landlords can decide on the number of people a villa can accommodate. “Families sharing a villa have to seek permission from the municipality to know whether a villa is big enough to accommodate a certain number of people,” he said.
So what about those people who were evicted from villas? Will they get compensation for this new change of thought from the municipality? We guess not.
