Revamp will see the establishment of eight committees to settle rental disputes, two appeal committees and five execution departments

A new decree to reform the rental dispute settlement committees in Sharjah has been issued by Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah and chairman of the Sharjah Executive Council (SEC).

The committees will be affiliated to the Municipality of Sharjah, financially and administratively, said a WAM report.

Based on Article (21) of Law No. (2) of 2007 regarding the regulation of the relationship between the landlord and the tenant in Sharjah, and its executive regulations and amendments thereto, eight committees are established to settle rental disputes, two appeals committees and five execution departments, the decree stated.

Judge Dr Mohamed Obaid Al Kaabi, chairman of the Sharjah Federal Court of First Instance will have overall supervision of the rent dispute settlement and appeals committees, and the mentioned enforcement departments, a report by WAM said.

The report also stated that Judge Ahmed Rashid Al-Salman, chairman of the Sharjah Federal Court of Appeal, will be responsible for carrying out technical and administrative inspections on the judgments and decisions of the aforementioned rent dispute settlement and appeals committees.

According to the SEC, the decision specified the term of membership in the committees for two years, and the committees will continue to conduct their work at the end of their term until new committees are appointed, and those whose membership term has expired may be reappointed.

The committees continue to hold their sessions during the judicial recess, in coordination with the Judicial Inspection Department at the Ministry of Justice, WAM said in its report.
