Shopowners hope to get strata titles soon
14/02/2009 The Star By Christina Low

AFTER 16 years of occupying shops without strata titles at the Kepong Entrepreneurs Park, the owners are finally feeling hopeful about obtaining them soon.

However, Kepong community service centre head Yee Poh Ping said they had to first settle the long overdue quit rent.

Yee said as of last year, the quit rent amount totalled more than RM1.8mil.

“The owners have been trying to collect the large sum in the short period of time given,

“They are also collecting money to pay the appointed trustees and land surveyors who would be helping to get their strata titles,” said Yee during a press conference held by the Kepong Entrepreneurs Park Association of Shop Owners recently.

The 600-odd owners have been using the lots they bought from the developer before it went bankrupt.

Yee said the shop lots which were mostly occupied by the Small Medium Industries (SMI) were not maintained nor were these awarded Certificates of Fitness (CF) until 2004.

No strata titles: The 600-odd shops at the Kepong Entrepreneurs Park.

“Without the CF, the owners could not apply for their business licences and hence they had been paying fines to the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) for operating illegally,” said Yee.

Since then, he said representatives from the association had been working hard to obtain the strata titles.

“Without it the owners cannot transfer or sell their lots to others and this is a problem they had been facing for years,” said Yee.

For now, the association is hoping to collect at least RM2.5mil for the payment of quit rent and other miscellaneous fees.

During the meeting, the owners said they would be paying the quit rent as they had collected the money.
