Group take measures to revive project

12/03/2004 The Star By YIP YOKE TENG

HOUSE BUYERS of abandoned project Taman Hulu Langat Jaya at 9 1/2 Mile Hulu Langat are forming an association to revive the project that came to a halt 20 months ago.

They held a meeting on March 7 at a nearby school to seek endorsement from buyers for the formation of the association.

Almost all present agreed to make an initial contribution of RM1,000 for each unit to engage lawyers and relevant professionals.

Apart from Deputy Mentri Besar Datuk Dr Zainal Abidin Ahmad, the committee had also brought the matter to the Housing and Local Government Ministry and the House Buyers Association.

Loh ... to help buyers obtain Certificate of Fitness once the project was completed. Kajang Municipal Councillor Loh Chew June also attended the meeting.

Dr Zainal, who was present, said he had witnessed the developer signing a letter of undertaking stipulating that it would be able to obtain cash flow and resume construction work within two months. It was also promised that the project would be completed in October.

He said he would monitor the matter and inform the ministry if the developer failed to do as agreed.

“If after two months nothing is done, we will resort to legal action,” said spokesperson S. Magasvarey.

The residents said Taman Hulu Langat Jaya consisted of 131 bungalows. Sale of the properties were advertised in September 1999 and the houses were supposed to be handed over to the owners in November 2002.

The construction stopped in June 2002 when the developer faced financial difficulty due to bad investment in another project.

Some of the buyers formed a committee to deal with the developer but work on the project has not resumed until now. This is despite the many meetings held and promises made.

“The association urges the Government and the Housing and Local Government Ministry to have more stringent control on housing developments,” Magasvarey said.

Loh pledged to help the buyers obtain Certificate of Fitness once the project was completed.
