Dubai: Safety Concerns Prompt Denial of Parking Access for Nearly 200 Homeowners

Homeowners and residents in the Queue Point community in Liwan, Dubailand, are facing parking woes as safety concerns prompt a directive to avoid using building parking facilities. This precautionary measure has sparked worries, particularly considering past incidents in neighboring buildings developed by the same company a decade ago.

Lingering Concerns from Previous Incidents

A decade ago, residents in buildings developed by the same company faced structural flaws in parking areas, leading to the displacement of around 350 homeowners. Today, the ground situation remains unchanged, leaving residents uncertain about the future of their properties.

Present Challenges for Queue Point Community

Residents of buildings Mazaya 27, 28, and 29 in the Queue Point community are now experiencing parking restrictions due to safety concerns. This closure has forced residents to park in undesignated areas, resulting in traffic violations and penalties.

Frustrations Over Parking Alternatives

While attempts have been made to provide parking alternatives, not everyone has secured a spot, leaving some residents dissatisfied. Limited parking availability has led to residents spending more time searching for parking than on their actual commute.

Ongoing Issues and Safety Risks

The closure of parking areas has led to increased maintenance fees, leaving residents questioning the justification for these fees. Additionally, a visit to the location revealed concerning conditions in the community, including scaffolding supporting structures, open pits, and other safety risks.

Management’s Response

Kaizen Owner Association Management Services LLC, responsible for managing the properties, expressed regret for any inconvenience caused by these circumstances. They emphasized their commitment to managing properties in accordance with Dubai’s Property Ownership Law and outlined ongoing safety measures and rectification plans.

Residents’ Concerns and Property Value Impact

Residents expressed concerns about the impact on their property values and fears of potential evictions. The sale of apartments, issuance of new lease agreements, and registration of tenancy contracts have remained suspended in affected buildings for over a year.

Legal Framework and Developer Responsibilities

Dubai’s property laws outline key provisions for property owners, developers, and property management companies. Developers are obligated to rectify structural defects within a property for ten years from the project’s completion certificate. This responsibility includes repairing or replacing defective fixtures in the property for one year from the date of unit handover to the owner.
