Suffering in silence

14/08/09 The Star

THERE have been a number of reports in the press regarding the access road to Paramount View condominium in Seksyen 22, Taman Aman, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. A handful of residents near the condominium site have protested; the assemblyman and MP have commented on the issue, Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) has issued a stop-work order on the project, and the developer has also come out to defend itself.

But what about the buyers of the condo units? We have been suffering silently, hoping that the authorities and the developer will arrive at a solution quickly.

However, we cannot keep quiet any longer as we realise that nobody is thinking of us. We are the innocent victims here. We signed the sale & purchase agreements three years ago. We had confidence in this project since it had the approval of MBPJ. Who would imagine that three years down the road we would own a parcel in the air with no way in or out!

The buyers had made an appointment to meet the mayor on July 24 to get first-hand information on what MBPJ was doing about this problem. We only received news either from the developer or through the press and the impression that we get is that MBPJ is not able to resolve the access road issue logically. But alas, the mayor was not interested in meeting buyers.

We have a right to an explanation from MBPJ on why the access road is denied, and why it is denied so late at this stage when the building is already completed.

Of all the stakeholders involved, we are the ones with the biggest losses if the project is further delayed or abandoned.

We appeal to MBPJ to honour its approval and let the developer fulfill its obligations to the buyers.

We also call on Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San, Petaling Utara MP Tony Pua and Selangor state executive councillor Ronnie Liu to consider the plight of the buyers in their deliberation on this matter.
