To get rid of this perception, Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) awarded and recognised 15 stratified managements from low-cost flats and other categories within the municipality.
The initiative with the Housing and Local Government Ministry (KPKT) is an assessment-based star rating on each stratified development.
The main objective is to encourage residents to form a joint management body (JMB) or a management corporation (MC).
Since Subang Jaya is densely populated, it makes sense for Subang Jaya residents to live in a sustainable environment with stratified properties that are properly cared for, MPSJ president Noraini Roslan said at the event held at the MPSJ multipurpose hall in USJ7.
Relevant committees in stratified developments are responsible in caring for the nitty-gritty parts of managing and maintaining the common property in a housing scheme.
Among its other duties are looking into managing security guards, rubbish collectors and cleaners as well as ensuring amenities in public areas, including lifts are in working order.
Noraini said the Commissioner of Building (COB) was responsible in ensuring that the management bodies observe the duties entrusted upon them.
“MPSJ has the right to enforce the relevant laws when there is misconduct and violation of laws such as collection of fees or in handling the defaulters,”
she said at event to recognise well-managed stratified buildings.
Noraini said MPSJ also checked on JMBs that fail to submit the annual account statement.
“The COB needs to monitor the compliance with regulations stated under the relevant laws to ensure the community can live in a comfortable and conducive environment,” she added.
