Default Leaving Dubai

Despite our best efforts regarding jobs, we are giving up and leaving Dubai in July.

Does anybody have any info Re Lease terminations and refund of rent paid.

Like most we paid in One cheque. Is there any guidlines from RERA on this, Ie how many months rent penalty, and how long you have to wait for the refund, also the additional 'Service charge' they levy for the priviledge.

Intending to call Rera call centre but any advance info appreciated.

Also is it possible to check if you have any debt lodged against you with immigration.

sorry to hear this

with regards to the rent it depends what is written in your lease, ours said we had to give three months notice which we did and we got the remaining 6 months returned. RERA won't be able to help, you need to speak to the landlord about the situation.

Immigration are only informed of debts if there is a court case agaist you, you will be fine.

Lease is silent, other than referring to a penalty.
Only timeframe refers to lease renewal.

We have no debt. But company took 6 weeks to sort wifes visa which extended beyond latest date and would have incurred a penalty. Company say they have paid fines.
Also we received a legal letter regarding our temporary accommodation coz the company had not paid the bill. They say it has now been settled

Dont want a problem at the airport when we leave so want to check in advance. Is that possible and who do we check with

was temp accom in your name or Company name? ask for proof that it has been paid. As for the visa they would have had to pay the fines in order for the visa to be issued. You won't get stopped.

If you really are, surely you would be able to write the name of your company correctly?

no I didn't know them, shows how quick a business can hit the wall here though doesn't it. They won't be the first or the last in this situation that I am sure of. Going to jail for debt is not the way forward.
