Hello faizah and welcome to the Dubai property forums :).

Yes there are some fees / taxes / charges.

Rental of property attracts a 5% per annum Municipality Tax on the rental amount.
Transfer of property details (new properties are bought from a developer) to Dubai Lands Department (they issue title deeds) attracts a registration fee of 1% or 1.5% of the property value (I think, not 100% of the amount)
Selling a property means transfer of ownership has to be registered with Dubai Land Department and I think that's 1% or 1.5% of sale price. Or if the property hasn't been registered with the DLD yet, then a transfer fee is paid to the developer - which might be a similar amount.

I'm not aware of a Municipality Tax on property owners if the property isn't rented out.
Please use the forum for questions, not the PM system.
