Time to move out?

Notices in Dubai International City have prescribed strict rules about the number of people staying in its apartments

August 26, 2008 12:14 by



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.

    I REALLY AGREE AND APPRECIATE THE DECISION BY OUR AUTHORITY. JUST REVIEW THE OTHER END OF LABOR SIDE THAT THEY ARE PAID WITH AED.500-700 PER MONTH RENT ALLOWANCE BY EMPLOYER AND WITH THIS AMOUNT HOW THEY CAN AFFORD TO PAY AED.1500/- PER MONTH RENT.
    IT IS MY SINCERE AND HUMBLE REQUEST WITH AUTHORITY TO REVIEW ABOVE AND HELP TO THE POOR LABOR THOSE WHO ARE THE REAL PILLAR FOR CREATING OUR FUTURE DUBAI ADVERTISED BY RTA.
    KIND REGARDS
