Evicted Dubai resident finds landlord has relet property

If a landlord demands eviction due to himself or his immediate next of kin wanting to move back into the property, then after he has served a 12 months? notice via notary public or registered mail and then fails to actually move in, he cannot then relet the property to anyone else.

This applies for a period of two years for a residential property or three years for a commercial property.

If the landlord does indeed relet to someone else ?during this period, you should open a case at the rent committee at the land department in Deira, whereby according to the law, you should be entitled to compensation.
