Residents urged to pay maintenance fees to get strata titles
06/08/09 The Star Story by STUART MICHAEL

RESIDENTS of Dahlia Apartments and the surrounding apartments in Bandar Baru Selayang have been urged to pay maintenance fees in order to get their strata titles and immediately form a Joint Management Body (JMB) for each block.

Dahlia Apartments Action Committee coordinator Asri Buang said that some of the apartments’ occupants had not paid the maintenance fee since moving into these apartments and RM5,000 to RM15,000 was owed in backdated maintenance fees.

“Now the developer, Shah Alam Properties (SAP) wants residents to pay an additional RM800 so that the strata title for these apartments could be issued.

“In the past, a number of occupants refused to pay because the drains in the area were not maintained and rubbish not collected on time,” said Asri, who organised a meeting with Selayang MP William Leong and the occupants at the Dahlia A apartments community hall in Bandar Baru Selayang on Saturday.

It is estimated that more than 1,000 people from Seroja Apartments, Melor Apartments, Cempaka Apartments, Teratai Apartments, Kenanga Apartments, Dahlia A and Dahlia B Apartments in Bandar Baru Selayang have no strata titles despite staying here for more than two decades.

“Today, occupants from the apartments signed a memorandum that will be given to the State Housing Building Management and Squatters Committee chairman Iskandar Abdul Samad asking for a discount in backdated maintenance fees or to write it off,” said Asri.
