Bin Ghalita said this agreement will see CBD act as a trustee for escrow accounts opened in the name of the OAs.

"The bank will supervise the owners’ contributions that are deposited and withdrawn in accordance with Rera regulations. We are always looking to form strong partnerships with top banks to ensure a seamless process for our customers, consolidating Dubai as an ideal destination for real estate investment," he noted.

Dr van Linder said: "CBD is proud to partner with Rera in offering escrow services to OA communities, in line with the new law that aims to protect property owners’ rights and assist in minimising any associated risk."
