Amendment to pave way for Housing Tribunal
13/01/2003 Daily Express

Kota Belud: The State Government has prepared the draft of the proposed amendment to the Sabah Housing Developers (Control and Licensing) Enactment 1978 with a view to incorporating the requirement to set up a Housing Tribunal.

Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Seri Salleh Tun Said said Sunday the draft was now in its final stage of polishing.

The establishment of a Housing Tribunal has been incorporated in the amendment proposed for the enactmentÖthis is in line with the same provisions implemented at the Federal level, he told reporters, here.

Earlier, Salleh, who is also the Kota Belud Umno division chief, attended a meeting with Umno Executive Secretary Datuk Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, who is Minister in the Prime Ministers Department.

Salleh said the draft would be submitted to the State Attorney-General once it was completed before being tabled to the State Cabinet for the go ahead.

He was responding to a recent statement by Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting urging the State Governments to form housing tribunals to arbitrate disputes between developers and house buyers.

The setting up of the tribunal followed the enforcement of the national Housing Development Act last month.

The present enactment in Sabah does not have the provision to set up the tribunal.
