SIX years after signing the sales and purchase agreement, buyers of the Taman Saga low-cost flats in Ampang are still waiting for their homes.

The project has been stalled since 2005 without any notification or progress report on what is going on.

The buyers gathered at the project site on Wednesday to create more awareness and urge others in the same predicament to come forward.

Taman Saga low-cost flat pro tem committee secretary Chen Weng Teck said they had initially signed an agreement in 2002 but the developer had asked them to sign a new one in 2005.

The project consist of a 12-storey L-shaped building with 468 units with each costing RM42,000.

The developer had increased the size of the project from five-storeys to 12.

“We want more buyers to contact us, so we can push for the project to be completed.

“We were told the plans for the project are still being processed,” he said, adding they have no clue or details about the project.

The buyers had sought help from Teratai assemblyman Jenice Lee, who tried to meet the developer on Feb 7.

Lee said the developer failed to attend the meeting with the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council and buyers.

About 60 buyers attended the meeting and formed a pro tem committee to address their issue.

“I had called the office many times and was told the bosses were not around and then they said all the bosses have resigned.

“The developer must come out to explain the situation because the buyers want to know what is going on,” Lee said.

She added they were even willing to help the developer on technical aspects of the project such as getting the certificate of fitness.

Beautician Chin siew Kien, 34, has been paying RM350 monthly for a home that is in limbo.

She is now renting a place for RM500 but the owner wants them to move out.

“We want the project to be completed soon,” she said.

Affected buyers who want further information can call the pro tem committee members at 012- 37 20077 or 012- 32 01933.
