Time to move out?

If you live in Dubai International City, you will doubtless have noticed the new sign that has been put up on its buildings. “Warning,” it says. “Do not overcrowd apartments.” The notice goes on to explain what “overcrowding” means.
“Studio small – two persons only
Studio large/ 1 bedroom small – 3 persons only
1 bedroom large/ 2 bedroom small – 4 persons only
2 bedroom large – 5 persons only”
“You are breaking the rules of Trakhees- Government Regulatory Authority if you do not comply,” it ends.
One tenant we spoke to was pretty aggravated about it. “We have to pay Dh65, 000 for one large bedroom and five of us bachelors were staying together. Now it is going to get really expensive for us.”
Are you also facing similar problems? Being pushed out of an apartment in Dubai because of new regulations? Do let us know.
