Selangor Menteri Besar Khir should first lodge police report against state-owned companies like Brisdale Holding Bhd and others which breached terms of the sale & purchase agreements for their failure to deliver in time or failure to deliver at all. Projects in Pulau Indah, Klang and North Port, Klang are the 2 examples. However, in those cases, the state-owned companies have even been reluctant to pay damages for their breaches. Where is the leadership by example?
Well, Khir has his concern too. How to lodge police reports against them when all these state-owned companies are placed under one umbrella company headed by him!
Khir: Amend Housing Act again
KUALA LUMPUR: The Housing Developers Act (Amendment) 2002 should be amended again so that stern action could be taken against errant developers, said Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo.
This, he said, would enable legal action to be taken against developers who breach terms of the sale and purchase agreements for the provision of for basic amenities and road and drainage systems before the Certificate of Fitness is issued by local authorities.
He said the existing Act did not provide for a remedy when irresponsible developers handed over keys to housebuyers without even applying for the certificate.
