    Choose the type of housing units provided by the project from offices, residential, mixed or retail
    The year in which you want to know the value of the service and maintenance fees incurred by you

    The facilities
    management services
    The main complex (main area)
    reserve fund


    The costs of buying a property in the UAE can change in the future, especially as it is an official fee issued by the government, except for the fees of the transaction observer and the sworn translator.
