Oman: Rent going up

Rent in Oman is going up, according to Omani blogger Muscati. “Rents in Oman have been going through the sky for the past six months and the situation is now heading out of control. In the past month people have been getting notices from landlords increasing rents by unheard of amounts, and with immediate effect as well,” he writes.

    been living in oman for 20 year and its a shame due to the considerable amount on rents increasing the government is not doing anything about it.
    It time to wake up and stop this before its too late and oman is left high and dry.

    On a daily base there are neary 20 expats leaving the country .
