Rera’s new team to inspect all under-development projects in Dubai to ensure quality

The Real Estate Regulatory Agency, the regulatory arm of Dubai Land Department (DLD), has announced that it has established a programme of ongoing field visits to real estate development projects that are built in different locations across Dubai.

The new programme was developed by a dedicated team to ensure the quality of Dubai’s services and facilities, and service charges of common areas at major developed projects, in order to upgrade the specifications of the buildings and ensure that they comply with the highest international standards. These efforts are being carried out with a view to placing Dubai at the forefront of global real estate markets for attracting investment.

Mohammed Khalifa bin Hammad, Senior Director of the Real Estate Regulatory Relations Department said: “The control programme which has been applied will help us to ensure that the developers commit to finishing building requirements and will rid any excesses that may appear in new projects. Our initiative does not only aim to impose control on the quality of facilities and services, but also makes sure that developers claim fees imposed on existing services in those projects, which in turn preserves the rights of investors and reduces the problems that may arise during the completion stage of the buildings.”

The teams will handle the application of a comprehensive control programme through field trips and on the ground follow-up for all new projects. During the visits, specialists will conduct necessary evaluation work for the quality of services in these projects, noting that visits will be planned before the owners and tenants move to the properties.
