Rent Dispute.. Can it not be possible to adjust rent of notice period from security deposit?

By tham

Hi, I stayed in a small room with Qr. 950 rent per month. I have deposited equivalent to one month rent and now want to leave the room with one month notice. I want to adjust the rent of notice period from my deposite amount. But they want me still to pay one month rent. Can it not be adjusted the rent of notice period from deposited amount?

Yes you can. There is a government department that should be able to help you out on this. It is called the Rental Disputes Settlements Committee Office and here is the link:

Tell the owners that if they would disconnect the water the electricity, you will report the matter first to the police and then to the Rental Disputes Settlement office. You can also email a complaint letter in Arabic to them and show a copy of the letter to the owners of your accommodation. I am confident that would make them think a dozen times before they take such a step of disconnecting your water and electricity supply.

They are playing dirty with you as most estate agents in Doha do. If you have not given them a cheque as deposit money, then just don't pay them the rent they are demanding and take a hard stand. They will be compelled to accept the deposit as one month's rent. However, if you have given them a cheque, then the story becomes different.
