Property fees must be paid by owners, not tenants: Rera

Dubai?s real estate regulators have told developers to stop suspending any services to their units and said that property fees must be paid by landlords.

In a letter to developers, Dubai?s Real Estate Regulatory Authority (Rera) warned that they must not resort to any means to claim fees unless they are specified in the emirate?s laws governing the real estate sector.

?Developers must stop suspending or disconnecting any public utilities services from the property units or resort to any ways that are not specified in the law to claim any fees,? Rera said in the letter obtained by Emirates 24/7.

?Claims for fees must be directed only to the landlord and not to the tenant?they must be in line with an invoice which should be attached to a letter of consent from Rera approving those fees without adding any other fees,? the letter said.
