can anybody help..
my wife and I have recently moved to dubai and are going through the whole house hunting hell..
we've found a nice villa in the springs and paid a deposit and agency fee to an agent 3 weeks ago and signed a contract
. it then transpires that this agency is booking the house through another agency.. our cheques, agency fee and deposit where passed on to the second agency. we where given a new contract to sign. We are now waiting for a signed copy of the tennanct agreement to come back. aparently the landlord is 'out of the country' and until we get a tennancy agreement we cant get the dewa connected. The tennancy agreement started on the 25th may and we're still not in the villa.
we are now at the stage of asking for our money back.. anyone know how we stand on this? and who in dubai should we contact if we ahve difficulty get out money back ... the police? dubai municipality??
thanks for you help in advance.
