Do you want to notify other residents about problems or any issues that concern others in the community?

Here are some common issues that residents have asked and responded about:

DEWA – The cost of water and electricity for our villa runs between 2200 AED in August to 750 AED for our lowest bill in the cool months. Of course, that was only one month of the year!

If your bills are always over 2,500 AED, you may have underground leaks in your irrigation system or other plumbing or you are using too much A/C. We keep our A/C adjusted to 27 degrees on the ground floor and only use the A/C at night in the bedrooms set at 23 degrees.  We also have turned off the ghost fresh air (switch on grey panel in maids room) and have turned off the circuit breaker switch for the bathroom fans so that they do not run 24/7 !  Finally, we have also changed most of the halogen lamps to energy efficient ones. As well, we installed ceiling fans in each bedroom plus the living room. This truly allows you to keep the A/C at a higher setting and the circulating air in the room keeps it cooler. The fans are a little pricey but it pays off quickly. If others have more advice, please send it along.

NAKHEEL SERVICE CHARGE –  The community service charge in 2013 was 1886 AED.

BUILDING AN EXTENSION: You need to contact Nakheel for approvals to build an extension. This site is not managed by Nakheel. Here is a comment by a fellow resident on the process for obtaining the CD of villa drawings:

Hi!… Called Nakheel, was asked to email them the issue and property details, which I did. Nakheel then replied saying I should contact the contractors/subcontractors who did the waterproofing on my roof. They also said that this info is available in the ‘As Built documentation’ for my house. Unfortunately, I do not have this documentation as I bought the house 2nd hand, and the previous owner didn’t hand me over these docs; he has now left the country, so I asked Nakheel if these can be reproduced for me and here’s their reply which might be helpful for others:

“Kindly find the below attached information in order to apply for the As built / MEP drawings CD:

– As built / MEP drawings CD, Handled by Community Management.

– Admin fees should be done in the Nakheel Sales Office building #3 in Al Sofouh Road

– Receipt of admin fee payment & tge title deed should be sent via email to JVT Community

– Community team will inform owner when it is ready for collection.”

  1. Hi,
    I am thinking of renting 1bdr in JVT, and the agent has just sent me the fees related to my rent:
    – Chiller and Hot Water by Place

    Not really understanding why ‘hot water’ is separate from Dewa?.. is it going to be more expensive then?
    What should I be expecting for AC fees (apart. is around 900 sqft)?

    Many thanks in advance.
    Would also appreciate if you could say if the area is already developed with supermarkets, cafes, etc..

    Thank you!


  2. Hi, is anyone having any water supply issues?
    I haven’t had water since last night. I’ve contacted DEWA and they say there is no problem in the area and there is no issue with my account either?


    • Hi Jayson,

      I lived in the JVT villas and had the same problem. So first you should check if the circuit breaker or the residual current device feeding that breaker has tripped. if that is not the case then you should check the outdoor underground water tank and pump room (in the garden next to each other). If there is water in the tank (heavy steel lid) then check the pump control panel in the pump room. if led lights then try manual operation of one of the pumps. one pump should work otherwise check the fuse inside the plastic box (pump control panel) probably it is blown. you might still find spare fuses inside that box.
      For more help call me. on 0508491301 khaled.

  4. Hi we thinking to move to a two bedroom villa in JVT. And I have two questions for these experienced tenants/residents
    – how much Dewa bill are you paying for a similar two bedroom independent villa with a partial grass. And reasonable ac consumption?
    – which district or section within the JVT is more developed

    Many thanks for your comments.


    • Hello Hanan,

      I lived in JVT for 4 years.
      If you are renting then you will be paying a 4 % fee on top of your rent added to your dewa bill. In the winter (as of October till april) the weather is very pleasant in JVT and you do not need AC. if you do not have irrigation then your dewa bill will come around 300 AED plus the tenancy fees (4% I explained earlier). if you have irrigation then your should add around 200 to 500 to your bill depending upon the water spent in your garden. During summer of course the AC will increase your bill by around a 1000 AED and your irrigation water would be double. So you do the math.
