All,

I would like to apologise to those contributors who sent me personal messages which went unanswered. No excuses!
I am still negotiating with DEC regarding MW2, and as soon as the issue is resolved I will post details.
General question though.........are there ANY good quality apartments in the Marina for sale just now at a knockdown price?

Dubai residents misusing balconies to be fined from March

Trakhees says awareness campaign ends this month; fine set at Dh500 per offence

By Parag DeulgaonkarPublished Saturday, February 25, 2012

Residents of Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Lakes Tower, International City and Discovery Gardens will start getting fines from March if they are found hanging clothes or having a barbecue on their balcony, 'Emirates24|7' can reveal.

Trakhees, the organisational arm of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, supervises residential communities, which also includes Jumeirah Heights Jumeirah Village, Jebel Ali Downtown, will end its awareness campaign that started in October last year by month-end.

“We will end our awareness campaign by end-February and start issuing fines to those not obeying the law from March,” a company spokesman told this website.

In November, the Community Conformance Division of Trakhees had informed residents not to fix satellite dishes on the facades or balconies of their buildings; not to use balconies as places of storage for any purpose other than seasonal furniture pieces; not to hang sheets, clothes or curtains or rugs or mops or laundry on balconies or railings of homes and not to have barbecues in their balconies.

The authority says it has undertaken a comprehensive community-based awareness campaign that includes a range of awareness-raising posters and brochures in five languages: Arabic, English, Hindi, Urdu, and Chinese. Those failing to follow the rules would face a fine Dh500 per offence.

Separately, tenants breaching the occupancy limit regulation set up Trakhees could face fines of up to Dh50,000. The maximum allowable occupancy limit for apartments is one person per 200 square feet from the total property area.

Hello, I went last Wednesday to RERA to check for any news. Well at least now the guys on the reception telling at least "yes it's canceled but it will take some time". When I went there last time the answer was only "if project not cancelled we can't do anything". Well at least I wanted to check because when you go to RERA online there it is nothing mention.

However I send my details to both emails mentioned above and it was not updated in there system. So i advise everyone to go personal there to update the details.

Anyone went to DEC these days ?

This is a massive issue which threatens to turn many buildings in Dubai into ghost towers.
From what I know the inept Goverment is doing zilch to address this issue.

There are zillions of investors who put their money into Dubai. Many have watched their investments tumble in price etc.Although much of this was due to the worldwide slump, the Goverment could have done something to help matters.They did nothing.

Now it is their duty to make sure those who don't pay their maintenance fees do pay.

I think this issue is important enough to warrant its own thread mods?

Basically not wishing to stir things up but if Dubai was swamped by westerners taking up all the positions of Goverment, admin, regulation, service, Dubai would prosper like you wouldn't believe.

Those in these positions currently are useless, inept, inexperienced, lazy, unorganised etc.

I think your above post say's it all. What's wrong with paying your maintenance fee's to insure your buildings upkeep is taken care of, and most important that it's not cut off from utility providers also ?

Yes there should be serious penalties for non payers because it's not fare to the people who do pay, and that's where we need government regulation to inforce that.

I'm a little confused with your reply, are you saying I'm right, or wrong with my view ?

Don't you think the westerners need to get their own house in order first ?

Spec how about we put this nonesense behind us, and focus more on what we all have in common. Let's try to keep the forum a pleasure to post on, what do you say ?

A few of us have been hard on one another, but hey it's all water under the bridge, let's move on.

Dear Owners,


You might be aware that there was disruption to the water supply in the last few weeks to three of the Marina Diamond Buildings as DEWA supply was disconnected due to non payment of the DEWA bill. Yesterday DEWA acted upon their threats and disconnected the power supply to the common areas in Marina Diamond Building Number One. After tense negotiations with DEWA, Diamond Developers successfully managed to reconnect the electricity and water to all the Marina Diamond Buildings conditional that Diamond would sign an undertaking stating that all pending dues to DEWA will have to be settled within a maximum period of two weeks. Those who are defaulting on their maintenance fees have to make their payment immediately, in the event dues are not paid then we will have no alternative but to disconnect utilities to all defaulters.

If you have not made your payment, you are requested to make your payment immediately and no excuses, non payment will not be accepted. Treat this announcement very seriously and act accordingly.

This will start happening every where! Which apartments are next?

I don't see more "anti-western" rhetoric then "Dubai suck because it's not western" one, so everybody should just calm down and use the tiny or not so tiny brains they're blessed with.

I am tending to believe that the Dubai Authorities have been really scammed into implementing the district cooling. That tech was advertised as able to cut in half the cooling charges .... but what the tech providers seams to have conveniently failed to tell, is that true the A/C consumption would be cut in half, but the fee one has to pay for using the service is way much more then the savings achieved.

Same with the tram system ....

Ridiculous.That's like saying Messi is useless because he had two bad games forgetting what he normally does.

My post wasn't trying to be confrontational I was just stating what many might think is obvious.
