Rental Good Conduct (RGC) Certificate Service Launched

According to the Director of RDC at Dubai Land Department (DLD), Judge Abdulqader Mousa, the new service aims to reduce cases of rental disputes. For instance, they have encountered cases where a tenant rents a unit, pays the first installment only, transfers to another unit when the contract ends, and repeats the process — resulting in severe losses for the leasers.

Mousa stated that by using the new RGC certificate service, anyone can:

  • Inquire about a potential tenant
  • Inquire about a potential leaser
  • Report a rental dispute matter
  • Track existing rental dispute cases
  • Learn about Dubai Real Estate Legislation

By inquiring whether or not a potential tenant/leaser has a rental case filed against them, service users can make informed decisions. Consequently, they can avoid rental disputes and the legal problems associated with it — travel prevention, seizure of accounts and property, for example.

“The RGC Certificate service also enhances the smart transformation of procedures provided to customers, contributing to achieving excellence and providing easily accessible services that ensure customer satisfaction,” he added.

Likewise, the CEO of wasl Asset Management Group, Hesham Al Qassim, praised the new service, citing is as “the ideal solution” to rental violations. “We are confident that RDC finds proactive and helpful solutions to create a safe environment that benefits all involved parties, and maintains Dubai’s reputation as a happy city and the preferred destination for living and investing,” he shared.
