Thursday, Jun 21, 2012
Dubai Emaar Properties is now naming and shaming villa owners who have allegedly not shelled out cash to cover their maintenance service fees at Arabian Ranches, Gulf News has learnt.A visit to the Arabian Ranches development on Thursday revealed that lists of delinquent accounts were posted at the gates of the Emirates Road community.
One list contained the names of 14 owners who, the list claimed, had not paid their fees to cover common services inside the compound.The letter asked “owners of the villas to settle their community fees for 2011 and 2012 at the earliest.” When contacted on Thursday, a spokesperson with Emaar Properties confirmed the action had been taken to bring delinquent accounts up to date.
“Every homeowner has a duty to contribute to the management and maintenance of the common areas in the community by paying their community service fees on time. While the overwhelming majority of homeowners pay the service fees on time, some others fail to do so despite several reminders. The non-payment of service fees puts a financial burden on the community. Emaar Community Management recommends that tenants ensure their landlords have paid the community service fee in full prior to signing their lease agreements to ensure they enjoy all community services.”
