It is mandatory for each developer to open a security account according to the law no.8 of 2007 which is concerned with insured accounts for real estate developments in which all the payments received from the investors are deposited. After having met the required percentage of a projects construction, money is released by RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Agency) after assessing it. RERA chief said that they are not afraid of their projects being stalled as developers are launching projects to build them instead of having the idea only to sell them.

Investors have now become smart and are eager to know about the materials that are used, and also regarding finishes and service charges that were not used earlier. The RERA chief previously wanted developers to slash the service charges down by way of allocating a part of built-up area in their projects in order to generate revenue.
Developers can allocate some of the built up area for generating revenue, beginning with 50% of service charge going up to 70% to be covered form this asset and not from the investor. Thus, the investor will be paying 30%.
