New good conduct certificates will help landlords evaluate tenants

Dubai Rental Disputes Centre (RDC) has launched a Rental Good Conduct (RGC) certificate service designed to reduce disputes between tenants and landlords.

From the property owner’s perspective, it could help to identify tenants who may have had problems honouring rental cheques in the past.

The new service implements the initiatives offered by the centre to reduce rental disputes and was initiated following the monitoring of several cases where a tenant rents a unit and only pays the first installment of the agreed total cost,” said HE Judge Abdulqader Mousa, Director of RDC.

At the end of the contract, the same person rents another unit and repeats the act in other properties, exposing the leaser to severe losses. This service will assist real estate management companies in finding rental information of a person they intend to contract with and avoid such mishaps.”

You can access the service by downloading the RDC application from the Apple Store or Google Play, and choosing one of three options: inquiry on tenant, inquiry on leaser or inquiry on request status.

As well as helping property owners, the service would also alert tenants to potentially problematic landlords. Tenants can also find out if there is a complaint against them, a situation that can result in travel bans or account seizures.
