Protection for house buyers from tomorrow 25/08/1991 NSUNT By Alex Choong
KUALA LUMPUR, Sat. - Chances of housing developers abandoning their projects will hopefully be remote with the coming into force of the Housing Developers (Housing Development Account) Regulations 1991 on Monday. The long awaited regulations - seen as an important step to check irresponsible housing developers from absconding with purchasers' money or leaving house-buyers in the lurch, are aimed at ensuring that every ringgit paid by a housebuyer is accounted for in a housing project.

Housing development account not a solution 26/08/1991  NST
THE Housing and Local Government Ministry, despite exhaustive studies into the problem of abandoned housing projects obviously cannot see the wood for the trees. It assumes the primary and sole reason for projects being stopped mid-stream is the avarice of some developers who abscond with the buyers' money. Out of this assumption comes the presumption that the Housing Developers (Housing Development Account) Regulations, 1991, which comes into force today, is all encompassing enough to ensure that instalments and financing raised by buyers are safe in the tightly controlled accounts, if the developer is insolvent and cannot continue with the project. The assumption and the presumption, to be sure, are both manifestly baseless.

Kementerian tarik balik lesen pemaju 26/08/1991 BH

Developing accountability 27/08/1991 NST
SHELTER ranks second in importance as man's basic requirement after food. Never mind if the shelter is a $500,000 condominium or a $25,000 low-cost unit, the fact is it hurts monetarily and mentally when a person enters into a legal contract with the developer to build that unit for him and later finds that he has been cheated. Whatever justification or reason might be forwarded for developers abandoning their projects, the crux remains that the buyer is the victim. It is grossly unfair that it is the buyers and the Government who have to shoulder the responsibility if they want their projects revived. But that was, and is, the situation. This certainly cannot continue, considering that housing is a necessity and building has to go on all the time. Now that the Housing Developers' (Housing Development Account) Regulations 1991 have at long last come into effect, after a prolong period of "refinement" following numerous sittings with the powerful Housing Developers' Association, will this imbalance in accountability be corrected? There certainly is a lot of hope pinned on it as a means of reventing irresponsible housing developers from absconding with purchasers' money.
