There is no doubt that getting evicted before the lease term has expired is a stressful time for a tenant – both financially and mentally. If you have been evicted in Dubai, then it is important for you to know your rights and your options.
Grounds of Property Eviction in Dubai
According to Dubai Law No. 26/2007/ On the Organization of the Relationship between the Lessors and Tenants in the Emirate of Dubai (as amended by Dubai law No. 33 of 2008), the landlord may request eviction before the expiry of the lease term in only specified cases.
These cases have set out in Article 25/1 and include, amongst others:
Article 25/2 of the Dubai Law further states that the landlord may request the tenant to be evicted from the property on the expiry of the lease only in the following cases.
It is also crucial to note Article 26 of the Dubai Law, according to which, if the landlord has evicted the tenant on the grounds that the landlord wishes to use the property personally or by his relatives, then the landlord cannot rent out the property for at least 2 years in case of a residential property and 3 years for non-residential property, unless a shorter period is approved by the authorities. In case of breach of Article 26 by the landlord, the tenant is entitled to claim compensation from the competent authorities.
While being evicted on non-justifiable grounds may be daunting, a tenant must be aware of his rights in respect of eviction. Contact expert real estate lawyers in case of any consultation for your real estate issues.
