Also, renting real estate and residential units for use as group housing is considered a violation, and its administrative fine is 100,000 dirhams. It also pointed out the importance of following security, safety, and public health procedures for residential units in terms of ventilation, air conditioning, cleanliness, and public health. In the event of a violation, the violation is 25,000 dirhams.
The department stressed that occupying real estate in a manner that violates the customs or public morals prevailing in the state or public taste is 25,000 dirhams, and that occupying or renting real estate, residential units, and popular housing from the back will expose the owner to the violation, which is 25,000 dirhams.
