Fines for landlords and tenants if rules are broken
Landlords and tenants could face fines of Dhs50,000 ($13,000) if they break the one family, one villa law, it has been reported.
Hussain Nasser Lootah, Dubai Municipality's director general, told the National that legal action could also follow any fines as the authorities clampdown on villa sharing.
"We made this announcement two years ago, and it was made very clear that sharing villas would not be allowed," Lootah told the paper. "Now we have given enough time, and there will be no more exceptions."

I request anyone with proper information to clearify this doubt ,or even if Timeout Dubai could help me out , i'll be obliged .
My question is : Does the 'One Villa Per Family' rule also apply to the villas/townhouses in Freehold Areas ,in which expats are permitted to purchase properties ?
As far as I know ,Emaar & Nakheel say that this rule doesn't apply to their Freehold Areas .
PLEASSSSSE HELP ME OUT !!!
