RB Owners Step up Campaign

Reports suggest that the approach taken by Al Hamra Estates in dealing with concerns raised by investors amounts to ignoring them or at the best giving half-truths. In the absence of clear answers and any official confirmations regarding promised facilities, a growing body of investors appear to be uniting under 1alhamravillage@gmail.com, with a view to taking up their concerns to the highest authorities in RAK

One of the options being looked at by the Group is that of invoking Federal law no 5 of 1985 relating to civil transactions (‘civil code’); here is an extract

This law contains more broadly applicable remedies for deception or cheating which specifically enable a duped customer to refuse to proceed with the contract for the goods or services advertised. Main articles:

●   Article 185 – Misrepresentation is when one of the two contracting parties deceives the other by means of trickery of word or deed which leads the other to consent to what he would otherwise have not consented to

●   Article 186 – Deliberate silence concerning a fact or set of circumstances shall be deemed to be a misrepresentation if it is proved that the person misled would not have made the contract had they been aware of that fact or set of circumstances

●   Article 187 – If one of the contracting parties makes a misrepresentation to the other and it transpires the contract was concluded by a gross cheat, the person so misled may cancel the contract Under Article 129 “one of the necessary elements for the making of a contract are that (a) the two parties to the contract should agree upon the essential elements” – that is that the parties should consent. Under the law, misrepresentation falls under the heading “defects in consent” which means that it robs the contractual relationship of one of its essential elements. It follows under Article 210 that where a contract is “lacking in the elements of a contract …” it is deemed “void” and such contract “shall be of no effect and shall not be capable of being rectified by consent”. Thus misrepresentation is treated as a defect in consent rendering the contract void

●   Article 285 – If a person deceives another he shall be liable to make good the harm resulting from that deception [source]
