JOHOR BARU: About 90% of the reported issues of broken amenities at the Pangsapuri Impian Jauhar, Taman Sri Amar here have been resolved by the developer, Johor Land Bhd (JLand).
Johor Housing and Local Government committee chairman Datuk Mohd Jafni Md Shukor said some of the work included repairing the broken lifts, placing security guards, and placing a new water pump system.
"Some of the major concerns by residents here were the low water pressure, malfunctioning lift, and safety issues, which have now been resolved.
The remaining work is repairing the leaks in the ceilings and toilets, which will be completed by next month," he said in a statement on Tuesday (Sept 27).
The developers will continue to monitor any other defects for two years from the day that the key was handed over to the residents, in line with the Defect Liability Claim under the Housing Development Act 1996, he said.
"The homeowners here are also protected under the Strata Management Act 2015 and Strata Titles Act 1987," he said, adding that the Management Committee would also be formed by the end of this year.
On July 4, The Star reported that the issue of building defects at Pangsapuri Impian Jauhar, Taman Sri Amar and other sites is expected to be fully sorted out within three months.
One of the main issues faced by residents is low water pressure, and it would take time to be resolved as water pumps need to be imported.
"These are the common issues faced by high-rise residential areas, and we expect the process of buying the new pumps for installation to take about two months.
"After that, we can focus on the smaller issues like repainting the building and maintaining the landscape," said Mohd Jafni.
The Pangsapuri Impian Jauhar is located in Bandar Baru Majidee and was built under the Rumah Impian Bangsa Johor (RIBJ) scheme on 2.75ha of land.
It offers two blocks of 320 three-bedroom apartments, which were completed at the end of 2021.
The RIBJ initiative is an affordable housing scheme launched in 2017 by Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar.
