Housebuyers are sceptical

15/07/2004 MALAY MAIL

PENANG: The Sri Bayu Project Action Committee is sceptical of the State Government's promise that the residents would be able to move into their new Sri Bayu apartments homes in Bayan Lepas before Hari Raya.

Its president, Mat Pozian Rashid, said although the housebuyers are
thankful that the State Government is working hard to look after their interest, they doubt the promises.

"We bought the units more than 10 years ago and have been waiting for them to be completed ever since. There have been many problems pertaining to contractors, sub-contractors and other matters that kept delaying its completion."

Pozian, who bought the house when his first child was one year old, said the kid is now in lower secondary.

"You can imagine the frustration. We will only believe that we will move in when we get the keys," he said.

He said the housebuyers not only had wait for their homes to be completed, most of them have been servicing interest for their bank loans.

He said most of the families also have to rent houses while waiting for their homes to be completed.

Pozian was responding to the announcement by State Exco in charge of Housing, Culture, Arts and Heritage, Syed Amerrudin Syed Ahmad that their homes will be completed in a month's time and the buyers could move in before Hari Raya in November.

Pozian said the committee and its members are grateful to the former main contractor of the Sri Bayu project, Public Packages Holding Berhad (PPH) for thinking of their interest in this matter.
