My Experience.... As I mentioned earlier I had parts of this I was dreading, mainly because hubby got a new job and only had days to get up and go, which meant I would be dealing with everything. The Bills, Tenancy all in his name, I was ready for a battle!. We had two months left on our Tenancy so I did have time to deal with it all. To my surprise closing the Electric, A/C and Etisalat went very smooth, all I needed was a letter from hubby authorising me to close the accounts down, along with a copy of his passport and a copy of his cancelled visa, all was done within days of the end of our Tenancy ending. Getting rid of unwanted stuff was a nightmare, this I thought would be easy, I was giving it away, the company ( I won't name but I'm sure you all know).....booked 3 weeks in advance to take the stuff and give to the lower paid workers etc. After clearing date and time with security, all was ready to go, they never even turned up, wouldn't answer my calls, emails or sms messages. After waiting around for 6 hours I picked everything up which I had piled high ready for collection was put in the garbage room, I just hope it did get picked up by people and went to a good cause, I was flying that night so had no option. Selling furniture and other household stuff......that went pretty much OK, advertised, date time arranged, people did turn up and take. Storage companies........that did take a bit of time finding the right one as we only had a few personal items we wanted to store till we know where next, I got there in the end with days to spare. Now then the Inspectors.........that was hilarious, never witnessed anything so stupid in my life. Arrived on time, then started feeling door frames, yes feeling door frames, why? I have no idea, but stood on the balcony watching the two of them laughing to myself, then writing notes, taking pictures etc, I then asked why they were taking pictures of the bedroom floor, 'There's a scuff mark', errm, yes we had a bed in there. I suggested to them that in future maybe they need to to put in the tenancy agreements that no furniture is allowed in the apartments as I didn't realise we were meant to eat, sleep and sit on the floors. Of course they didn't grasp my sarcasm. I asked to read the report on his tablet, there were questions, example....Have the curtains been removed, under the question where three boxes YES NO N/A None of these boxes had been marked, so I asked why not, ' If I leave it blank it goes through automatically as a yes' hahahahahaha, really so why is there a YES box even there, I proceeded to click the boxes myself. After taking numerous irrelevant pictures I informed 'The Inspectors' I would be signing nothing unless they removed the pictures as the report was utter nonsense. The reply from him made my day, if you don't sign there will be no proof you have given us the key or access passes back, really........I soon sorted that little issue by taking a screenshot of said passes and key next to their appointment book and their hands ( didn't take their faces). The looks on their faces was priceless. There you go, I have all the proof I need. After informing me I could comment on the report, I did.....;I don't agree with this report at all, wear and tear, having furniture to sleep, eat and sit on I actually thought was common practice this day and age. I will not sign something I don't agree with and is a load of rubbish, have a nice day' Turned to Inspector gadgets, bid them farewell and left. So yes the parts I dreaded where easy, the last part a farce. We have been informed this morning Deposit minus 1,000AED will be returned....Result! So remember ladies, if you don't agree, don't sign. Sorry for the long post but thought some points worth knowing.
