Dubai Rental Dispute Cases Can be Registered Electronically


Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), the flagship free zone entity of Dubai has entered into a collaborative initiative with the Rental Dispute Centre (RDC), the judicial arm of Dubai Land Department, which allows the Free Zone to register its rental dispute cases with the centre electronically.

The smart initiative has made Jafza the first organization to lodge its rental disputes with the Rental Dispute Centre online saving a significant number of man-power, at the same time, dramatically improve operational efficiency at both the organisations.

Ahmed Al Awadhi, Senior Vice President, Legal Affairs & General Counsel, commenting on this initiative said:

“The initiative allows us to log on to the Rental Dispute Centre’s online system and register our case with RDC through a quick and simple mechanism and follow through different steps and stages of the legal proceedings to reach the final resolution of the case at a very fast pace, without ever visiting the centre physically. The entire process makes the judicial processing much faster, efficient, accurate and transparent. This also allows Jafza to use its available resources more efficiently. The move is part of the implementation of smart government initiative launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. ”

“This marks a beginning of a paradigm shift in the justice delivery system in the emirate,” he added.

Al Awadhi thanked Rental Dispute Centre authorities for their valuable support in the development of the idea and converting the concept into a hard core reality.

Honorable Justice Abdulqader Mousa Mohammed, Chairman of the Rental Dispute Centre said:

“The new electronic system of the Rental Dispute Centre will allow all concerned, whether plaintiffs or defendants to register their cases on the centre’s website and follow up the decisions of the cases proceedings and information on the next date.

“In the first phase the online services will be available only to government bodies and some of the Emirates’ major real estate companies as a prelude to enable all customers to use the system during the third quarter of 2015.”

Honorable Justice Abdulqader Mousa also pointed out that the system was prepared and developed by Emirates Real Estate Solutions and also enables to pay the fee, as and when required, and also attach documents, as well as, receive copy of the judgment and also report of execution of decrees, wherever applicable.
