Dubai: Dubai’s Rental Disputes Centre (RDC) is right at the centre of action, resolving 1,863 lawsuits and 326 appeals in the year so far.
And its Smart Judge app, which serves out instant judgements, managed to snag a high user base totalling 3,544 since its launch.
“The RDC has worked tirelessly to promote a secure environment for all parties through awareness, communication and efficient adjudication,” said Judge Abdul Qader Mousa, director of the RDC.
The RDC came into being in 2013, becoming a reference point for resolving rental disputes through an integrated judicial process.
The RDC — the judicial arm of Dubai Land Department — also has the capacity to develop new procedures for making decisions about rental issues.
These laws define the responsibilities of landlords and tenants alike, and ensure all parties are aware of their rights.
In addition to raising awareness among these parties, the RDC specialises in adjudicating any rental disputes that may arise between them.
It receives claims from various parties, as well as requests for temporary or urgent action from either party of the lease contract.
It also adjudicates appeals made against decisions and judgements.
Following the settlement of disputes, the RDC is also responsible for implementing the judgements it has made.
