RDC organises payment writ workshop to increase awareness on rental culture

Dubai, UAE, 19 October 2019: Under the patronage of HE Sultan Butti bin Mejren, Director General of Dubai Land Department (DLD), the Rental Disputes Center (RDC) organised a workshop on payment writ, which was recently converted to an electronic format. The workshop included scientific lectures delivered by HE Judge Khalil Mustafa with the aim of raising rental culture among all relevant parties.

Bin Mejren said: “The various departments at DLD focus on building bridges with all relevant stakeholders in the real estate sector. We also attach great importance to spreading real estate culture among all key players in the sector, including developers, owners, investors, and tenants. The workshop, which was organised by the Human Resources and Customer Happiness Team at RDC, was held to emphasise the consolidation of the principles of transparency that guarantee everyone to know their rights and duties. In this way, we can enhance reassurance among all parties and ensure their proper adherence to the laws and regulations underlying the real estate sector.”

HE Judge Abdul Qader Mohammed Musa, Director of RDC, affirmed the need for customers to submit a payment writ request for the program, by way of artificial intelligence (AI), to search for the relevant legal materials and review the legal application and judgment or the appropriate decision of the requests. On the other hand, the calculator reviews the required amounts and then issues a judgment or decision.

The lecturer covered all aspects of the payment writ, including its legal title, terms, documents, and fees as well as how to register and announce its decision. Further clarifications were provided on matters relating to the execution file and appeal against the decision, in addition to general observations regarding the payment writ and appeal.

The lecturer also referred to the legalities of the payment writ, based on articles 62 to 68 of the Civil Procedures Law, and the conditions that must be met to issue a payment writ for the required debt, including its documentation whether electronically or on paper, writ status, and the amount, type, and value of loaned cash. The writ does not require a previous legal matter, precautionary measures, or for the defendant to be residing in Dubai.

The list of documents required to issue a payment writ include the tenancy contract; a mandate to fulfil and the benefit of the legal declaration of a mandate; photocopies of the cheques, their return, and the relevance of its source to the lease; ID, passport, or commercial license of the applicant and defendant; and any other documents relevant to each case.

During the lecture, HE Judge Khalil Mustafa prepared the discussion material and gave a detailed explanation to the audience that included a number of employees and customers. He also received many questions and enquiries, which made the workshop also resemble a brainstorming session hosting enriched discussions between the lecturer and the audience.

The Director of the Human Resources and Customer Happiness Team at RDC stressed that the results of the questionnaire measuring the happiness of employees and customers about this workshop exceeded expectations, affirming that such workshops will be held periodically and continuously throughout the year. This aims to exchange points of view between judges and customers to facilitate the litigation between the tenant and the landlord. Over 80 people attended the workshop and affirmed its importance, especially as it contributed to informing them of the latest developments at RDC.
