Dubai’s DED, RERA to monitor real estate facilities
Under the agreement, the DED’s Commercial Compliance and Consumer Protection (CCCP) section will monitor the facilities to ensure compliance with local laws and regulations.
The signing of the memorandum, which authorises CCCP to carry out the field inspections of real estate companies, stems from our keenness to ensure compliance with the laws and legislations for the practice of real estate activities,” said RERA CEO Marwan Ahmed bin Ghalita.
“This agreement will contribute to the realisation of DLD’s vision to establish transparency and accountability in order to preserve the rights of all parties in a safe environment that operates under regulations and legislation respected by all,” he added.
