What happens if your contract renewal date has passed and you’re unable to get through to your landlord?
Published on January 15, 2018
It is both your and your landlord’s responsibility to get in touch with each other 90 days’ before the expiry of the contract to agree on changes or the next renewal.
If there is no communication and the renewal date expires, the tenancy agreement automatically renews under the same terms as before.
Prepare your rental cheques in the name of the landlord and hand them over to Dubai Municipality; they will get in touch with the owner. As your renewal date has expired, no rent increase will be permissible, as your landlord would have missed the 90-day window.
