Perdana folk yet to get their strata titles
Star By OH ING YEEN
AFTER waiting for over 10 years for their apartments, which was an
abandoned project, to be completed, Serdang Perdana residents are put
through another waiting game.
Three years after moving into their homes, they have yet to obtain their
strata titles. Moreover, the car park is flooded whenever there is a
At a press conference, former Serdang MP Datuk Yap Pian Hon said that the
project was abandoned for more than 10 years and was later developed by
another developer. It was completed three years ago.
He added that according to the Strata Title Act 1985, the developers could
apply for the strata title six months after the CFs are issued.
“Residents in other areas in Serdang such as Bukit Serdang and Serdang
Raya also face the same problem on strata titles,” he said.
Residents also faced another problem as the TNB sub station in the
underground car park would be submerged in water for about two to three
feet during a downpour.
Serdang Perdana JMB chairman Selamat Mohamad said he believed that poor
drainage was the main cause for the floods in the underground car park. He
added that residents had to pay RM12,000 a lot in the car park.
“I called the Bangi TNB and when one of its staff members came, he said
that the flood would damage the cabels and may cause a power failure in
this area,” Yap said.
He added that there was a road that links Serdang to the KL-Seremban
Highway, which would benefit those residing around the area as it would
save them time instead of having to take a longer route. However, the
Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) has stated one condition for that link
to be opened to the public, which is for the developer to provide
maintenance for that link which measures about 100m.
“As the developer has failed to comply with the condition imposed,
residents have to take a longer route.”
He hopes that the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) will look into
Selamat added that the developers did not want to meet up with residents
to discuss the issues.
However, when contacted, a manager from Green Crescent Resources Sdn Bhd,
who wished to remain anonymous, denied the allegation.
“That’s not true, I can show proof that we had met up with the residents
to discuss matters,” he said.
He added that they were in the process of compiling details for the strata
“We can’t submit the strata title because certain documents are not
compiled. We are in the midst of compiling the required documents.”
In reply to the car park problems, he said: “The car park was built
according to the approved guidelines. We built scupper drains at the
entrance of the car park as a way to minimise flooding.”
On the 100m link to the KL-Seremban Highway, he said: “The link has been
approved by Plus and LLM but they want to charge for maintenance. We have
written to Plus to appeal to them to waive the fees.”
