Cases to be settled within 30 days
Working hours will be 7:30am to 2:30pm and then from 4:30pm, according to the DLD.
Promising speedier resolutions to property disagreements, Sultan Butti bin Mejren, Director General, DLD, said, in a statement, "The opening of the new rental disputes settlement centre is a move aimed at delivering an improved level of services to DLD’s clients.
“It will allow us to address disputes occurring from real estate issues in a timely and professional manner consistent with the department’s highest standards.”
“We have already recruited 48 legal experts for the centre,” he had said.
The settlement centre has to resolve most of disputes in a maximum of 30 days.
According to the Article 16 of the decree, all committees will have to judge all rental lawsuits within a period not exceeding 30 days from the date of referral of the case to them.
The deadline may, however, be extended in accordance with the rules and procedures adopted by the chairman of the Centre in this regard.
Residents likely to get boost in their salary package
The countdown has begun and everybody is keeping their fingers crossed for a big win for Dubai.
The various benefits of the Expo 2020 win have been listed in the past months – for example, the positive impact on the economy, the huge number of business and leisure tourists expected to visit the emirate, the more than 275,000 jobs that will be created and, of course, the potential appreciation in real estate assets.
A number of recruitment experts believe that, on the personal front too, residents of Dubai and the entire UAE are likely to get a similar shot in their salary package – something that can mark 2014 as a good year. However, most analysts are measured in the response, maintaining that while a win will definitely mean more job opportunities, the short-impact may not be very obvious.
