that "developers do not apply".
Speed up issue
of strata titles 22/03/1998 NSUNT
IT is no exaggeration to say that long-suffering owners of low and high- rise
buildings, who have yet to get their strata titles, are hungry for news that
can throw light on their predicament. Last week, two reports in the print
media on the problems relating to the issuance of this vital ownership document
will no doubt have attracted many readers interested in the subject. The number
of Malaysians and foreigners affected is not small considering that more than
100 million square feet of buildings requiring strata titles have been completed
in the past 30 years. Some building experts dare venture to make an educated
guess that only a small number of these buildings have been issued such titles.
This means some RM9 billion worth of property is in a state of uncertainty.
Without the strata titles, which denote legal ownership, all concerned parties
are at risk and can give rise to legal implications in the sale and purchase
of such properties.
