Low-cost flats residents get strata titles after 33 years

Residents of PJS 7/15 low-cost flats in Bandar Sunway, Petaling Jaya, Selangor will finally obtain their strata titles after a 33-year wait.

About 420 residents had been affected by the delay which was complicated by the fact that the flats were built on a piece of land that fell under two districts.

“The main problem with getting the strata title is that the PJS 7/15 flats is on land split between the Damansara and Petaling districts, so it took a longer time than expected,” said the flats’ joint management body (JMB) chairman Tan Heng Ann.

“The district border was adjusted before residents could acquire their strata titles,” he said.

Meanwhile, JMB secretary Abdul Rahman Bunar said he bought his apartment in 1989.

“It cost me RM31,000 to purchase the apartment back then.

“Usually, it takes 10 to 11 years to get the strata title, but I am grateful to receive it nevertheless.

“One of the reasons for the delay was the residents’ inconsistent payment of the maintenance fee,” he added.

Abdul Rahman was pleased that the JMB could now call the Subang Jaya City Council to help repair roads and faulty street lights in the area.

“As of Aug 16, only around 60% of the unit owners have received their strata titles,” he said, adding that not everyone had settled their outstanding maintenance fees.

Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng said there were several criteria to fulfil before owners could receive their strata titles.

“Residents must pay the premium fee, RM100 legal fees, outstanding maintenance fees as well as sign a memorandum of transfer so they can get their strata titles,” she explained during a symbolic strata title handover event last Friday.

Ng also thanked Sunway Property for helping residents with the strata title issue.
