I fully agree with all the comments made in other reviews. In today's times of economic turmoil, It is better to go for a readily available apartment than to wait for eternity to get one completed. However if you choose to go for Sobha and that too one being still completed, then these are the things that you need to be aware of -




  • Sobha will make sure that all the terms and conditions are in their favour




  • Any modifications that you ask Sobha to execute, they will botch these up big time. However, they will charge you a bomb for these modifications




  • Payment is linked to completed floors. Hence to get money as fast as possible, they just keep on raising floors without completing the apartments on the floor. Once the entire payment is made, they take their sweet time to complete the project




  • Their Service team comprises immature folks who do not know how to interact with customers. The turnover of these folks and Sales guys is very high. So you don't know whom to talk to if anything goes wrong - Believe me a lot of financial stuff goes wrong and no coincidence that this is always in Sobha's favour




  • Sobha is well known for delays in handing over projects. Average is more than a year!




  • They will not leave any stone unturned in extracting as much money as possible through heads like VAT, Service tax, BWSSB, KEB and Registration. They do not produce any receipts as proofs of payments made. Nor will they show any proofs when they decide to hike these charges arbitrarily




  • The top management is completely unapproachable. Mails and calls will go unanswered
