Dubai’s real estate authorities have decided to retain the status quo on the percentage developers should put up in escrow before launching off-plan sales. But there could still be significant differences between what developers used to put up earlier and what they have to do now.In a statement issued Thursday, the Dubai Land Department said developers need to place in escrow 20 percent of the “total project value”. Developers until now had been used to putting up a bank guarantee of the “value of the construction”.Clearly, there will be a marked increase in developer guarantees if the “project value” is enforced.
