  • Saturday, 30 Jan 2016

SCENARIO A: For 15 years, more than 50 owners of 90 condominium units diligently contributed their share of quit rent, apportioned by the developer’s surveyor, to their developer.

They were shocked when they made checks at the Wilayah Land Office and discovered that their developer had somehow used their portion of payment towards arrears that had accumulated to RM114,432 between 2005 and 2013. This figure does not take into account the quit rent for the current year and the late penalty that was imposed by the related land office. More shocking was that the penalty levied was quite a hefty sum over and above the arrears.
