Tenants have the right to carry out emergency repairs at a rented place without permission of its owner. In fact, a tenant can go ahead with emergent repairs even if the landlord objects to it. This finer point of the rent law was highlighted at a forum held at the Faculty of Law at Qatar University recently. If a tenant feels that it is important to carry out the repair in rented premises owing to the safety of the place, he can go ahead even if the owner has objections, a senior municipal official told the forum. Earlier, lawyer Yusuf Al Zaman, speaking on the rent law, said a rent-related dispute could either be taken to the rent dispute resolution committee or the court.
