Dubai home moves south to the UAE after more than five years
A Dubai house that once belonged to a man who has been missing since 2006 has moved to the United Arab Emirates for the first time since its arrival in the country in 2005.
The building in the centre of the UAE capital was once owned by a local businessman, but was eventually bought by the state-owned company, Al Jazeera’s Ahmed Al-Amin reports from Dubai.

Dubai has become a major hub for people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, but many of the buildings in the capital are still used by the country’s military.
The city has been hit by numerous floods, and is known for its strict controls on people who live there.
The first building to be renovated after it was bought by Al Jazeera was a large house that was built in the 1950s.
This was when Dubai was a relatively small, largely rural city.
Now, its population has exploded.
At the time of the building’s purchase, the owner was living in a small apartment in a posh area of the city.
But Al Jazeera learnt that the property was used by soldiers and intelligence operatives.
The house has been renovated several times since then.
Al Jazeera met one of the men who helped refurbish the house.
“When I bought the house, the price was around 10,000 dirhams [about $1,700] for a five-bedroom house,” he said.
For five years, the house was owned by his friend, who used to live in a bigger house in the city centre.
He is now moving out and living in the UAE.
“He moved back to Dubai because he thought it was too expensive to live there,” the man said.
“It was too noisy and the people were too poor.”
The house is not in a good state.
“The man, who asked to remain anonymous, said he had paid about 20,000 dinars ($4,000) to the state for the property.
He said he bought the property in 2003, when Dubai had about 70,000 residents.
The building was bought for $1.6 million, but has since risen in value by about 5,000 per cent.
The owner had hoped to renovate it.
Dubai’s housing crisisThe city’s population has surged as Dubai’s population grew.
According to the city’s official statistics, the city had 2.3 million people when the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) started surveying its population in 2010.
Dubayah has become one of a number of cities in the world where people are struggling to find affordable housing.
In 2015, the United States’ housing crisis became a major issue when housing costs were spiralling out of control.
In 2016, an estimated 5,400 US people were homeless, according to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The UNDP said it had documented over 800,000 homeless people in the Arab world, with most of them living in Arab countries.
Housing in Dubai is notoriously difficult to find.
It has one of most expensive rental markets in the region, and has been described by some as the “world’s most expensive city for renting”.
The government said the average monthly rent for a one-bedroom flat in Dubai was 3,000 UAE dirham ($1,988), which is nearly five times the average rent in the United Kingdom, where the average house price is just under £1,000 ($1 and $2,000).
Dubai, the capital of the United Emirates, is known worldwide for its lavish lifestyle.
However, the government has been criticised for its policies towards its poor residents.
The country’s conservative Emirati people have complained of a lack of public housing for them, with many of them relying on charity and government subsidies.
The UAE has one the world’s most restrictive residency requirements, and it has also introduced a new form of immigration that makes it difficult for foreign residents to get residency permits.
