A SENIOR engineer was awarded RM7,733 by the Tribunal for Home Buyer Claims in Kepala Batas for late delivery of a house he bought in Sungai Petani in 2013.
Tribunal president Mohd Hamzah Ismail ordered the developer to pay the amount to Mohd Zuber Hussin in a single payment within 30 days after hearing the case recently.
Zuber, 35, said his single-storey semi-detatched house was supposed to be delivered in June 2015 but was delayed by 135 days.
He said Hamzah was very fair and listened to both parties before he told the developer to pay the late delivery compensation.
In another case, company manager Yew Xiaowei, 34, sought RM50,000 in compensation from a developer for defects she found in her RM442,000 double-storey terrace house in Seberang Jaya during the liability period.
As the developer did not agree with the amount sought by Yew, Hamzah arranged for a visit to the house by a technical team from the tribunal at 9am on March 16.
