Dubai-based property developer Damac has decided to waive off the registration fees, which it had imposed on July 31.
"The registration fees for all external service providers was introduced to ensure the security of the residents in the community and to generate incremental revenue for owners associations with the objective of reducing service charges," Damac said in a statement.
"With respect to the implementation of these registration fees for external vendors and service providers belonging to all cleaning and maintenance companies across all Damac / Loams managed buildings, after reviewing the concerns raised by residents and owners, Loams has reevaluated the implementation process of vendor registration and work permits, resulting in the decision that hence forth all registration fees will be waived," it added.
"The primary focus of vendor registration continues to remain on ensuring safety and quality of service which is why the registration process will continue to be implemented without fees," Damac said.
Residents had taken to social media expressing their objection to impose Dh5,000 per year to hire external vendors for maintenance facilities
