If either tenant or landlord has a dispute over rent, which cannot be negotiated themselves, the legal option is to bring the case to Dubai's Rental Dispute Settlement Centre (RDSC) also known as the Dubai Rental Committee. HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, in his capacity as Ruler of Dubai has established the RDSC through Decree No. 26 for 2013. RDSC is is authorized by Dubai Government to provide a judicial system that can deal with rental disputes and settle legal issues in a quick, transparent and professional manner.
You can accomplish two things at the rental committee:
1. File a complaint
2. Deposit Your Rental Cheque - For a tenant, you can submit your rent cheque if it is due/overdue. This is assuming that you do not have any outstanding issues with your landlord regarding the lease renewal.
