Homefront: ‘My employer hasn't paid me for months and will no longer foot my rent’

Ask your landlord for a deferred rent payment to spread out the cost

I live with my family in Abu Dhabi and have three school-going children. In February, my company reduced my salary from Dh15,000 to Dh5,000 due to the Covid-19 pandemic but promised to continue paying for our housing.

The company has not paid my salary for the months of November, December, January and the first 10 days of February. It has also not paid my end-of-service benefits under the one-year limited contract, cumulatively worth about Dh70,000.

On June 2, the employer paid me Dh10,000 in salary for February and March as per the new contract terms.

My tenancy contract expired on June 6 and my company now tells me that they do not have money to pay for our accommodation.

I do not have money to pay the rent and the landlord is asking me to submit cheques. What should I do? FI, Abu Dhabi

The first thing you should know is that a rental contract automatically renews under the same terms and conditions as before if there is no communication between the parties to the contrary. Your situation is very urgent, so I suggest you contact the landlord as soon as possible to explain your position.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought many hardships and affected millions of people in one way or another. Obviously, a landlord is not running a charity but requesting for more time to pay your rent may help you to arrange required finances. You are not going to ask for a rent waiver, but a deferred payment could be of use to spread out the cost.

If all else fails, you may have to move to cheaper accommodation because nobody will allow you to stay rent-free for an indefinite period
Mario Volpi

Today, landlords are perhaps more lenient than they were a year ago.

I also suggest you speak to your company to sort out a road map as to when you will be paid what you are owed. If your company does not give you a satisfactory answer, you may have to visit the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation to force the employer to pay your dues.

Remember that if all else fails, you may have to move to cheaper accommodation because nobody will allow you to stay rent-free for an indefinite period.

I read a recent Homefront column about sustainable projects to invest in the UAE.

With the move towards sustainability and eco-friendly lifestyles around the world, particularly in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, would you recommend buying a property only in a sustainable project in the future?

Would buying a unit in a sustainable project make a difference to a buyer’s profits upon sale, compared with investing in a non-sustainable building? Also, how long will it take before everybody begins to buy eco-friendly properties? DG, Abu Dhabi

Building an eco-friendly tower is expensive for any developer. As with buying organic food in the supermarket, the consumer will have to pay more to do their bit for the environment.

When considering any property purchase, there are other buyer concerns or wishes besides the number of bedrooms or view. An eco-friendly building will attract interest from certain buyers. However, I do not think this is currently a major factor in the capital appreciation of a property that has these attributes.

With reference to how long it will take for consumers to actually seek out apartments or villas within eco-friendly buildings or communities, it will depend on many factors, such as awareness of climate change and cost savings. This shift will probably take as long as car buyers switching from petrol cars to electric vehicles.

How it works

1) The liquid nanoclay is a mixture of water and clay that aims to convert desert land to fertile ground

2) Instead of water draining straight through the sand, it apparently helps the soil retain water

3) One application is said to last five years

4) The cost of treatment per hectare (2.4 acres) of desert varies from $7,000 to $10,000 per hectare

How the UAE flag should be flown

The UAE has strict laws regulating the flying of the country’s flag.

Standards set by the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology say the flag should be rectangular in shape, its height half of its width and the colours in the correct order.

The owner must check on the flag’s condition every 45 days to ensure it is not damaged and it must be changed every six months.

The rules apply to situations where a flag is hung permanently at government buildings or embassies.

But there are regulations to govern the short-term use of flags as well. They stipulate that the flag should be made of nylon and it must weigh more than 122.5 grams per square metre.

The penal code includes fines and even jail for those who abuse the flag.

According to Article 176, “anyone who publicly insults the President, flag or the national emblem of the State, shall be punished by detention".

Article 3 of federal law No 2 for 1971 says whoever uses the flag inappropriately will face a jail sentence up to six months, and / or a fine; “as the country’s flag should be treated with dignity and respect, and should not be insulted, and not raised below any other flag or banner.”
