family and bachelor accommodation in DUBAI./...
Following the modus operandi of Dubai, the ‘one-villa one-family’ regulation is set to be enforced in Abu Dhabi, too. With families sharing villas in Dubai having pressed the panic button after the emirate’s civic body decided to impose heavy fines on landlords and tenants, the government has started forcing the land lords to evacuate and settle up the place according to the residence related rules of the land.
The most common sort of accommodation of the middle class population was the villa type houses, and the new rule which has been enforced restricts the stay for more than one family in a single villa, and they have started evacuation in villas where more than a family stays on a sharing basis.
This step from the government also aims to make sure that all the residents in the country are legally sanctioned for a stay in the country. With the one-month deadline already over, landlords are forced to ensure that their villas do not accommodate more than a family. The villas should be clean and without any illegal partitions. Landlords who do not ensure this have even targeted to be fined up to AED 50,000. Tenants deciding to stay are put face fines up to the amount of their annual rent, but the government has started to target the landlords from now onwards. Many have shifted from these villas and are in search of a place to stay. Due to this, the land rates at UAE have been soaring high for the past few years, resulting in the emigration of many of the expats.
Bachelors are treated with severe strictness, as they are not allowed to stay in family residential buildings. This has made bachelor accommodation the more costly. Bed spaces have become a major business in most places in Dubai. It is not the government that makes benefit out of most of these activities, but it’s the middlemen who act as brokers; they really reap millions as of the current scenario.
