InterestingIn an unprecedented ruling, the Dubai Property Court on Monday ordered a Dubai-based developer to pay over Dh8 million to an investor after it ruled that the purchase contract the company presented to the buyer was invalid as the developer failed to register the land with the Land Department.
According to a court statement, the unidentified investor purchased a number of apartments at Remraam, a project developed by Mizin in April 2008. In January, he discovered that the apartments were not registered in his name. The project is located on the Dubai bypass road, near Dubai Sports City.
Presiding judge Omar Miran issued this ruling based on the Land Department law No 13 of 2008 which stipulates that if a property is purchased off plan, it has to be registered at the registry within 60 days of the sales agreement.
After the court reviewed the complaint registered on January 21, it ordered Mizin on Monday to repay the full amount - Dh7, 490,762 - paid for the apartments, in addition to nine per cent interest to cover legal fees and damages.
