JOHOR BARU: The Tribunal for Home Buyer Claims has ordered a property developer to pay more than RM66,974 to two house owners for failing to complete a project on time.
The tribunal found that Cemerlang Land Sdn Bhd had delayed the Alam Larkin project in Larkin here for about three years before handing over the house keys to the owners.
One of the claimants, Ismail Mohd Amin, 57, said in a written statement to the tribunal yesterday that he had waited for 510 days before he received the keys.
“I bought the house for my son in 2010. The developer told me that it would take about two years to complete the project.
“But I had to wait for almost three years for the keys,” he said in an interview after the award was handed down to him.
He added that he had been paying his housing loan during the period.
Tribunal president Jamhirah Ali ordered the developer to pay back RM39,989.59 to Ismail within 30 days of the award, in default of which an interest rate of 8% would be charged.
Jamhirah also instructed the developer to pay RM29,985.21 to another claimant, Charles Isaac, within 30 days. The award was given for a similar delay to his house in the same residential area.
Isaac, 36, said he bought the two-and-a-half storey house from the developer on Nov 29, 2010, at a price of more than RM300,000, and he had to rent a house in Bukit Indah while waiting for the project to be completed and paying his housing loan.
