Light at the end of tunnel for 1,100 flat buyers
03/10/2002 The Star By Ng Su-Ann

About 1,100 buyers of the stalled Green Garden low-medium cost flats project in Paya Terubong in Penang may soon be able to move into their respective units as the Certificate of Occupancy is expected to be issued in two weeks.

Housebuyer P.K. Ng, 67, said she had received a letter from the developer stating that vacant possession had been issued and the buyers would receive their keys after making the final payment of RM10,000 each.

She said when she called up the developer, she was told that the OC was expected in two weeks and the buyers could probably move in next month.

“I am so excited as I have been waiting for 28 years to move into my dream home,” she said in an interview yesterday.

Ng said she had applied for a low-medium cost flat since 1974 and was looking forward to a new home after being a tenant all this while.

When the state housing department finally offered her a unit in the Green Garden project in 1996, her joy was short-lived as the project was stalled halfway due to the economic slowdown.

Under the sales and purchase agreement, the developer had three years to complete construction of the two blocks of low-medium cost flats before the authorities would build a two-carriageway road in front of the flats.

As compensation for the delay, the developer had agreed to throw in some “extras” such as providing grille doors and tiled flooring for each unit.

When contacted, Paya Terubong assemblyman Datuk Dr Loh Hock Hun said he was aware about the new development at Green Garden.

Said Dr Loh: “I will ensure that the developer’s application for partial OC will be considered based on humanitarian grounds.

“I understand that many of the buyers have being greatly inconvenienced by the project’s delay and are eager to move into their units.”
