Damac Dubai must pay 1,8 Million after the developer failed to finish the appartment in time

Posted by 7starsdubai on June 27, 2011


Dubai – 26 June 2011

Damac Properties Dubai must pay the Irish couple Noel and Lorna Gaffney compensation for failing to deliver their apartment in Dubai’s Park Towers on time the DIFC Court ruled.

Dubai Property Dispute compensation DIFC Court ruling 2011

Gulf News reported, that the Court also criticised the company for using highly technical arguments and tactics as well as the casual manner in which it had approached the court proceedings — as a result, it ruled that Damac should pay the Gaffney’s Dh200,000 legal fees.

As reported in The National the court awarded the Gaffneys Dh1,781,009 (US$484,872), representing a refund of payments they made towards apartment 602 in Tower B of the development.

The Gaffneys bought their Park Towers apartment off-plan in 2004, according to their original claim. The project consists of two 49-storey cone-like glass buildings and is situated within the grounds of the DIFC, close to the financial district’s central Gate Building.

Dubai Damac chairman Sajwani sentenced to jail by an Egypt Court

Posted by 7starsdubai on May 13, 2011


Dubai Developer Damac Chairman Mr Sajwani was sentenced to five years’ jail, fined 242 million Egyptian pounds (Dh149.5m) and ordered to return land to the Egyptian government.

Mr Sajwani was convicted “in absentia” because he was not present for the trial in Egypt.

“As the prosecution and conviction of Mr Sajwani were totally improper, the sentence, fine, order to return the Gamsha Bay land to the state and Interpol arrest request constitute a breach of the bilateral investment treaty between Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, whose purpose is to protect investments of UAE investors in Egypt,” Damac said in a statement

Damac Properties 140 Million Dollar suit under way at Dubai International Financial Centre Court

Posted by 7starsdubai on February 24, 2010


original source Emirates Business24-7

Lawyers representing a German investor, Dr Lothar Ludwig Hardt, said the developer allegedly used the money from other property projects to construct Park Towers, the only development that appears to be ongoing out of the five that Hardt had signed up in February 2007.

“These close links show the other four properties are connected to Park Towers… which should have been finished two years ago,” Ludmila Yamalova, legal consultant and partner at Al Sayyah Advocates and Legal Consultants, told Emirates Business. She said Hardt has invested $9.7 million on five properties which, in addition to Park Towers include the two cancelled projects – Lotus Residences and Wildflower; Ocean Heights, which was scheduled for completion eight months ago; and Water’s Edge, where construction hasn’t been started yet.

The German investor is thus demanding refund of $9.7m and is seeking damages and lost profits caused by the developers’ breach of contract and other violations of the UAE, Dubai and DIFC Courts. Yamalova estimates that damages, loss of profits plus all the legal fees could go up to $140m.

“As of today, defendants have not delivered any of the properties and have not complied with any of the contractual obligations to claimants,” a claim form seen by Emirates Business said.

Defendants have committed a series of violations of UAE, Dubai and DIFC Laws in connection with properties such as enticement and unfairness, illegal sale, failure to obtain necessary approvals, failure to commence construction timely, failure to timely register developer and obtain necessary license, mismanagement of escrow funds and violation of trust account regulations, unfair contracts of adhesion, fraud and deception… illegal competition, bribery, trickery, breach of trust, cheating in commercial transactions, money laundering and accomplice liability,” said the claim form.

Dubai Damac Haz Tower scandal – Business Bay 

Posted by 7starsdubai on May 16, 2008


Confusion over the Haz Tower project in Business Bay may be nearing an end as both Damac and Hilal Al Zarooni will have to sign an agreement by next week, according to Land Department officials, Gulf News reported.

Emad Eldin Farouq, legal counsel for Dubai Land department, said, “There is a settlement agreement that both parties have to sign. They have no choice.”

The signing has so far been delayed due to a possible second option.

The Haz towers project was launched July 8, 2007, after Damac bought it from Dubai Properties before selling it on to Hilal Al Zarooni. The cause for the delay is unclear but Eldin Farouq says it is due to the reservation agreement. “Damac blames Zarooni for breaking the reservation agreement. Zarooni was meant to sell the building after approval.”

However, Damac had received no authority for the floor plans or marketing of Haz Tower, according to official documents received by Gulf News. “Damac didn’t have approval from Zoning Authority for the floor plan and elevations for Plot BB.B.01.040 [Haz tower plot].

“Damac has not taken any approval for marketing any tower on the above plot. Damac, owner of plot BB.B.01.040, has not got any approval to start selling the tower or units in the plot which need bank guarantee first to be provided to Dubai Properties.”
Last week, a Damac employee said that the Haz towers project is “on hold, according to a statement by the chairman”.
However, Niall McLoughlin, senior vice-president of corporate communications at Damac, denied this. “Haz towers is going ahead. It would be inappropriate for me to further comment on Haz towers. As you know, it is sub-judice,” McLoughlin said in an email to Gulf News. Another Damac employee said any queries should be directed to Hilal Al Zarooni.
Investors are becoming increasingly frustrated as there appears to be no reason why the project shouldn’t go ahead.

Hilal Al Zarooni told Gulf News, “We’re waiting for the Land department to give their answer. They said it would be next week.”

However, investors are losing confidence in the Land Department as they have now had the complaint for over six months.

Eldin Farouq said yesterday that “the chapter will be closed next week.”

Nakheel distances itself from Damac – Jebel Ali Palm Project Palm Springs

Posted by 7starsdubai on April 4, 2008


source Gulf News

Dubai -Uncertainty surrounds Damac’s cancellation of its Palm Springs project as master-developer Nakheel, which is building the Palm Jebel Ali where the project was initially planned, saying it was not informed of Damac’s decision to cancel.

Marwan Al Qamzi, managing director of the Palm Jebel Ali, said Damac’s decision came as a surprise and Nakheel learned of it through the media.

“We are very surprised by the statements made by Damac suggesting that the reasons for the cancellation of its Palm Springs project are due to revisions in the Palm Jebel Ali masterplan,” said Al Qamzi.

“The Palm Springs plot was relocated to a prime position due to widening of the crescent,” he said.

“Our last interaction with Damac took place in February this year and was one of positive engagement.

It left us with the firm view that Damac was proceeding with the project. We are extremely disappointed by this recent development,” said Al Qamzi.

Al Qamzi said that the revised masterplan allowed for significant improvements in the design.

Nakheel has sold other plots of land on the crescent of Palm Jebel Ali to Damac. Al Qamzi said it was now the responsibility of Damac to ensure the delivery of any units it has sold within these plots to customers.
Revisions to the Palm Jebel Ali masterplan were communicated to investors more than ten months ago.

“From Nakheel’s perspective, Damac’s cancellation of the Palm Springs project must be linked to other development issues specifically related to the project,” said Al Qamzi.

Damac was unavailable for comment.
