Does your home measure up?
09/12/2008 NST By Ivy Chang
Your Sale and Purchase Agreement states that you're getting a house with
1,200sq ft of space. However, upon obtaining vacant possession, you
discover that it's actually quite a lot smaller. Whoa, though. Before
confronting your developer for explanations, there are some things you
need to know. First, you can't revoke your purchase based on this
discrepancy, not even if a professional surveyor confirms that there is
indeed a shortfall. However, you can recover some money from the developer
if the difference between what you signed for and what you're actually
getting exceeds a stipulated amount.

While the National House Buyers Association (HBA) is appreciative of the
housing industry's significant contributions to economic development, it
is also mindful that house buyers too play an important role as the
industry's customers. For the industry to be sustainable, it strongly
feels that the interests of both the developers and house buyers need to
be taken into account, especially those of the latter who have only an
inaudible voice in the wilderness.

Buyers taking more time to make up their mind
The Malaysian market for commercial property, particularly for en bloc
deals, is still active but buyers are taking more time to decide, a senior
official of a property company said. The global economic downturn has made
buyers more cautious but recent events of aborted deals do not reflect a
drastically changing market. In November, IOI Corp Bhd scrapped a deal to
buy Menara Citibank in central Kuala Lumpur for almost RM600 million,
citing concerns about the economy.

that the disaster was an act of God, others alleged it was due to an
abandoned housing project, and still others asserted the cause of the
landslide is purely the negligence of maintenance. Bukit Antarabangsa
residents have announced they are planning to sue and claim compensation.
Lawyers said that will be an uphill task for the claimants.

to the residents.
