You will not be charged without prior notice and your consent.
We reserve the rights to charge fees for using other services, such as premium listings. When you create a listing or use a service that has a fee, you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged based on our fees schedule, which we may change from time to time. Changes to our fees schedule are effective after we provide at least fourteen (14) days’ notice, which we will do by posting the changes on the Site. We may choose to temporarily change the fees for our services for promotional events (for example, free listing days) or new services, and such changes are effective when we post the temporary promotional event or new service on the Site.
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in Dirhams (“AED” or “DHs”). You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with the Site in a timely manner and using a valid payment method.

A Partner assumes full responsibility for updating Prop.ae as this information changes or is discovered to be inaccurate. It is the full responsibility of the Partner to review the finished listing on the Site and inform Prop.ae of any inaccuracies, typographical errors, misprints or omissions, and Prop.ae assumes no responsibility in the event that these occur.
It is also your responsibility to ensure the accuracy of the photos displayed. Prop.ae is not liable for any photographic inaccuracies. You are expected to follow and use only acceptable Content. Members and/or Partners using Content that is not acceptable to Prop.ae are subject to cancellation at the sole and absolute discretion of Prop.ae.

Prop.ae and its licensees may display advertisements and other information adjacent to or included with Your Content on the Site. You agree that you are not entitled to any compensation for such advertisements. The manner, format and extent of such advertising are subject to change without specific notice to you.
6.1- Exclusion of liability
Whilst Prop.ae makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information published on the Site, we cannot be held responsible for any errors, omissions or changes that may have occurred. All listings, recommendations, opinions expressed and prices regarding properties, services and/or destinations displayed on the Site are provided for guidance only.
