2,694 housing units found violating rules in Abu Dhabi


The results of the extensive campaign covering several areas of Abu Dhabi revealed that 2,694 housing units were in violation of housing regulations provided by the government. Of them, 1,552 were located in Abu Dhabi city, 1,009 in Al Ain city and 133 in the Al Dhafra region.

Since the start of the campaign, 2,595 homes have corrected their situation, while 99 homes have not resolved their violations within the stipulated warning period.

The campaign adheres to the regulations outlined in Law No. 8 of 2019 on the Regulation of Occupation of Residential Properties and Units in Abu Dhabi. The main objective of this campaign is to raise awareness in the community about the negative repercussions of leaving housing units unused or reusing them for unintended purposes. Additionally, it seeks to educate people about the regulations, prerequisites and penalties related to rental housing subsidies. Additionally, the campaign promotes active community participation to address these cases, given their harmful social and environmental consequences.

In cooperation with ADHA and in coordination with relevant government entities, DMT has taken the necessary legal measures against 99 housing units that have not corrected their status or have not complied with established procedures and regulations.

ADHA emphasizes its commitment to providing adequate and sustainable housing solutions that meet the unique needs of Abu Dhabi citizens. Actively enforces regulations governing the use of housing units, closely monitoring their occupancy. Additionally, ADHA is committed to providing maintenance solutions to maintain overall housing conditions, aligning with the Government of Abu Dhabi’s objectives of fostering vibrant residential communities that prioritize public safety and provide an enabling environment.

ADHA has confirmed that the ongoing inspection of the houses has resolved the previously identified issues, ensuring compliance with the rules and regulations regarding government-built houses. In cases where violations persist, it will promptly implement appropriate legal procedures and measures without prior notice.

DMT has also announced its intention to start the second phase of its inspection campaign in May. This next phase will focus on all government-provided housing units within the emirate.
