Sharjah sets rental rule on how many can live in an apartment

Marriage certificates mandatory for families for attestation of rental contracts

Sharjah Municipality has implemented stringent rules for attesting rental contracts. According to the new measures, only three people are allowed to stay in a studio flat; four individuals in one-bedroom apartments; six in two-bedroom flats and nine people in three-bedroom homes, reported Al Khaleej newspaper.

Sultan Abdullah Al Muala, Director-General, Sharjah Municipality, said the rules are implemented with the aim to maintaining privacy of families and controlling bachelors in areas inhabited by families.

He added that marriage certificates are mandatory for families for attestation of rental contracts.

Al Mualla was commenting on the number of complaints by residents that the municipality was returning contracts unattested.

Taking such measures has also helped the municipality crackdown on absconding workers, he said.
