Emaar offers relief: Free repairs for rain-damaged homes in Dubai Communities

Emaar Properties has announced that they will repair all properties in their communities that were damaged during the recent heavy rains at no cost to the owners.

“In response to the challenges posed by this adverse weather and heavy rains that Dubai has experienced in the past few days, I am pleased to announce that Emaar will undertake the repair of all properties within our communities that have been damaged by the recent rains at its own cost to ensure that our residents can return to their daily lives as swiftly and smoothly as possible,” mentions Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties.

The step is taken to provide relief to residents in Emaar’s communities affected by heavy rains. It seeks to alleviate the impact of the unprecedented rainfall on thousands of individuals living in these areas.

He said the developer has always strived to support its community in times of need and as a responsible company. “We undertake to provide all possible support in such situations including complete repair of our customers’ homes,” he adds.

Emaar founder said that since the severe rains began on Tuesday, the company’s facility management and community management staff have been on the ground, tirelessly assisting customers day and night.

“The teams have been actively dealing with challenges, including clearing numerous water-clogging issues, and continue to work around the clock to provide solutions. Building on this dedicated effort, we are pleased to announce an initiative to repair all homes within our communities affected by the recent severe weather in Dubai, at no cost to residents,” said Alabbar.

A rare and powerful storm hit the UAE, bringing heavy rainfall to Dubai and other areas of the country. In just 24 hours, over 142 millimetres of rain fell in Dubai, well above the average annual rainfall. This was the heaviest rainfall the UAE has seen in 75 years. The storm caused significant damage, with flooding trapping residents and causing leaks in many homes.

Heavy congestion and chaos ensued due to street closures, detours, and partially submerged roads, forcing some cars to drive towards oncoming traffic to avoid flooded areas. Social media captured footage of malls filled with water, highlighting the extent of the flooding in the area. Amidst all of this, this news by Emaar Properties will come as a sigh of relief for all residents indeed.
