Tougher action urged against rent defaulters If possible take tougher action against the company not paying salary to their workers so they can pay their rent on time. @farook_sadiq And who protects tenants from abusive landlords who do not want to return the guarantee? @vfmontes Exactly! If you gave a deposit for the flat in Bahrain, you may as well kiss it goodbye! @an_nomad I support the landlords; people should face a travel ban for non-payment! @socialglitters Question: If someone is forced to close by the government due to restrictions and someone tries to negotiate for a rate which they both can survive on until the economy gets back to what is was, but the landlord doesn’t care and forces you to pay a high rate, is it okay? And do not forget to get a good size you will ensure paying 40 per cent of your income or pay from capital just to cover the cost, is that okay? Have you seen the rates in KSA lately? I think you should check their listing compared with Bahrain and you will understand the inflation on rental .
