A decree imposing a 15 per cent cap on rental increases for all leased properties in Dubai has been issued by Dubai’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum. The order comes into effect immediately and will remain in force until the end of 2006. The rent committee at Dubai Municipality will be responsible for implementing the new order, and will review any tenant complaints. ‘Landlords will no longer be able to impose rental increases of more than 15 per cent on their tenants,’ Saeed Mohammad al-Kindi, chairman of the rent committee, told MEED on 16 November.
