Sharjah intensifies inspections to expel singles from family residential areas

The decision was made after complaints from Qadisiyah residents about the lack of privacy, unruly behavior and thefts.

 

A senior official said that the Sharjah municipality has intensified inspections in areas "designated for families only" to expel singles, and this came as His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah issued directives to expel singles from Qadisiyah.


“The municipality is intensifying its efforts to ensure that the emirate remains an ideal destination for families,” said Thabet Salem Al-Tarifi, Director General of the Civil Authority.

The decision was made after complaints from Qadisiyah residents about the lack of privacy, unruly behavior and thefts.

Singles and singles are not allowed to share apartments in Sharjah's "family only" areas, but this practice is widespread in Al Shuwaihean, Al Juwair, Al Majaz, Maysaloon and Qadisiyah areas.

Families in these areas are now asking the authorities to intervene and impose severe penalties on owners and tenants who rent or rent out their housing units to singles.

“Our area has been empty of bachelors for several years, but now they are back,” said Abdul Aziz al-Ameri, a resident of Qadisiyah.

Mahra Al-Tanifi, a resident of the area, said the number of singles increased because they "deceived the landlords" by presenting family documents. "After they moved in, they left the sub-villa for the single men."
