House buyer still waiting for ‘dream home’
11/4/2005 The Malay Mail NURADZIMMAH DAIM

KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 11: Will he ever get to live in his dream house? This question has haunted Vinodh Aravindan, 38, since 2002 after a developer informed him that the project in Puchong in which he bought a house in 2000 had not taken off.

As a trade off, the developer, Talam Corporation, offered Vinodh a unit in another scheme called Saujana Puchong, being developed by the company.

Vinodh agreed and was told that his double-storey house would be completed in September last year.

However, till now, there is no sign of the keys being delivered.

“I wrote to Talam twice in September and October last year to enquire about the project. They replied my second letter saying that the project is still on, but why isn’t there any progress?,” said Vinodh, adding that no definite date was given to him.

In the letter, he said, the developer also mentioned that he can claim for compensation caused by the delay.

“All I wanted is an assurance that the project is still on and that I will be getting my house soon. This is because I am paying the house loan and don’t want to be told later that I won’t be getting my house.

“It was inconvenient for me as I had to cancel the first loan and reapply for the Saujana Puchong unit.

“When I learnt that my house in Saujana Puchong is not ready yet, my wife and I bought a house in USJ8.

“I hope the developer can at least inform us, the house buyers, of the situation and not keep us in the dark.”

When contacted, a Talam spokesman told The Malay Mail that the project is still on and that it will be ready by the end of this year.
