Requirement of NOC for new job in Qatar?

I joined a company in 2007 with indefi nite contract term and the company was taken over by another in 2010. The same contract was extended by the new company. Again in 2016 another new company took over the previous one and my indefinite job contract term in 2016 mentions that “The start date of employment is deemed to be from 2007 while the contract effective date is from 2016”. Kindly clarify whether NOC is applicable in this case for taking any new employment in 2017.

Maintenance of rented property?

I am staying with my colleagues in a villa in Doha. We have been in this building since 2013. Our landlord refuses to do proper maintenance of the building. If we ask for some repairs he says that it is the tenant’s duty to do maintenance.

If the agreement is silent on maintenance, who will be responsible for the maintenance of the building?

My company has filed a cheating case against me and the police, after interrogation, took me to the public prosecution but later released me after keeping me in custody for two days.

Landlord refuses to return cheques?

I lost my job and the company has given one month time before cancelling the visa. I have issued cheques to my landlord starting from March 15 and I have not written the payee name in the cheques. If there is any case on the dishonour of cheques, can I defend on this ground as I did not write the payee name? Now the landlord refused to terminate the contract and to return the cheques. How can I terminate the contract if the landlord does not agree? Can I approach the court for getting back the cheques and to terminate the rental contract?

Punishable act over parking row?

I do not have an assigned vehicle parking lot at my residence. Usually, I park my car on the roadside where parking is allowed for the public. Last week, on my way back from office, I found the space was occupied by some other car. I asked the driver to move his car, but he refused to do so. On that particular day, I was really exhausted after work and, out of anger, I let the air out of a tyre of that car.

Now, I have received a summons from the court and I understand that the owner of that vehicle has lodged a complaint against me?
