Strata Act seizures

Come out with maintenance fees or out goes your furniture, TV, rice cookers . . .

Hardcore defaulters on condo or apartment maintenance payments may have their units raided and the movable items inside – such as TVs, appliances and smartphones – seized by the authorities. The Strata Management Act 2013 gives more power to building management bodies to take action on errant owners, with the backing of local councils and the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry. And the seizures have begun! PETALING JAYA:

Knock, knock, who’s there?

Officers from the Kajang Municipal Council’s Commissioner of Buildings unit and Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry seizing items from a defaulter during a raid at an apartment in Bangi. Confiscated

The answer could be the authorities, here to seize your belongings if you are a condo owner who defaulted on maintenance fees.
The Government is intensifying enforcement efforts against condominium and apartment owners who fail to pay up. And it means business.
In fact, the seizures have already begun. For the first time under the Strata Management Act 2013, five units at an apartment in Bangi, Selangor, were raided in May because of their owners’ failure to settle fees totalling thousands of ringgit.

Movable items like flat­screen TVs, smartphones and even appliances like rice cookers and gas tanks were seized by the apartment’s management body, the Kajang Municipal Council’s Commissioner of Buildings (COB) unit, and the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry.
The items were later auctioned off to settle outstanding fees or reclaimed by the owners who finally paid up.
Such action will be stepped up to get more defaulters to toe the line.

“Similar enforcement efforts, including seizures, will be extended to various locations nationwide,” the ministry’s urban service division senior principal assistant secretary Mohd Syaifulrizal Mohd Bakar told The Star.

In fact, five other raids were conducted so far this year by the ministry, together with the respective local councils’ COB.
Mohd Syaifulrizal said there was no minimum amount of outstanding fees needed for such seizures to be conducted.
“As long as the joint management body (JMB) or management corporation (MC) of a condo or apartment has served a written notice to demand payment from the unit owner, and it is unpaid after 14 days, enforcement can take place.

“The JMB or MC can serve a warrant to the defaulters with the help of the COB and ministry,” he said.
Aside from seizing items, other actions that the JMB and MC can take include filing a summons in court against defaulters and filing a claim in the Strata Management Tribunal formed under the Act.

The Act, which came into effect in July 2015, gives more bite to management bodies in taking action against errant unit owners.
Calling it more comprehensive than the repealed Building and Common Property (Maintenance and Management) Act, Mohd Syaifulrizal said the new law had also led to a slight improvement in property management standards.

“The ministry wants more JMBs and MCs to practise better quality management and maintenance to foster a harmonious and healthy living community,” Mohd Syaifulrizal said.

DBKL to sponsor repair costs

Offer to foot 90% of outlay open to all government and privately owned flats

KUALA Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has offered to sponsor 90% of the repair costs of problematic residential high-rises, both Government and private-owned, in Kuala Lumpur.

getimage92ui9icf

DBKL will sponsor up to 90% of repair costs for both PPA and PPR as well as privately owned high-rises, provided they put forward the balance of 10%

Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said all 74 of the Government’s Public Housing (PPA) and People’s Housing Project (PPR), as well as high-rises that were privately operated, could take up the offer – provided they put in the balance of 10%.

“There are a lot of complaints from residents living in high-rise developments on the management of the building.

“Most of the complaints are about lifts, wiring and plumbing,” he said.

Often, the joint management bodies or management committees tasked with managing these buildings fail to resolve the issues for various reasons.

“So, we have decided to help – provided the residents are willing to contribute,” Tengku Adnan said.

“We can also give their building a new coat of paint to make it look good.

“Those interested can make their application via the Federal Territories Residents Representative Council,” he said at the Kenduri 1Wilayah Persekutuan for the Batu constituency at

Dewan Perdana Bandar Baru Sentul on Wednesday.

Tengku Adnan said DBKL had upgraded the lifts in Sri Kelantan Flats and PPR Taman Wahyu, and was in the process of doing the same for PPR Taman Beringin and PPR Intan Baiduri.

“We know the problems and are constantly trying to find solutions.

“Regarding the parking problems in the city, as well as in the residential areas, we are also trying to identify suitable areas to build multi-storey car park complexes.

“There are also complaints on lack of security for residents staying in government housing, as anyone can come and go without restriction.

“We are open to the idea of having access cards, provided all the residents agree to the initiative,” he said, adding that events like the Kenduri 1Wilayah Persekutuan enabled the authorities to get closer to the people and to hear their problems.

Tengku Adnan also said that the chicken slaughterhouse project at the Selayang daily market would go ahead despite protests by some residents.

He stressed that it was to centralise and regulate slaughtering activities in the market.

“Not all the chickens sold at the market are slaughtered in the halal way.

“So, with the modern, centralised slaughterhouse, Muslims can be sure that chickens bought from the market are indeed halal,” he said.

Tengku Adnan also advised petty food traders operating in inappropriate places to take up the grants given out by various government agencies, such as DBKL, Tekun Nasional Financing Scheme and Mara, and upgrade to operating from food trucks.

THREE thousand Federal Territories Affordable Housing scheme (Rumawip) units will be built at the former Desa Water Park in Taman Danau Desa, Jalan Kelang Lama in Kuala Lumpur.

The 16.99ha land, previously occupied by a theme park and restaurant, has been sold to developers Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd for RM500mil.

Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said a mixed development project comprising Rumawip units, commercial and residential projects would breathe new life into the area.

“The water park was not sustainable and the operators complained that they had lost money over the past few years to keep the place running.

“We have taken back the land and the operators have been compensated,” he said during the launch of three Rumawip projects at the former Desa Water Park.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), back then, had leased the land to Berjaya Corp.
“As part of the sale condition, we insisted that 3,000 Rumawip units be built here.
“But, we are negotiating for an additional 2,000 units to be constructed.
“There will, of course, be other commercial development but this has not been finalised by the developers,” he said.
The 850 sq ft Rumawip units will cost not more than RM230,000.

Tengku Adnan also launched three projects simultaneously Residensi Desamas in Taman Desa, , Residensi Wangsamas that will be built in Wangsa Maju and Residensi Jalilmas in Bukit Jalil.
The 900sq ft units at Desamas will cost RM300,000 while units at the other two locations will cost RM198,000 for an 800sq ft unit.

“Since 2013 until November this year, we have achieved a total of 50,455 Rumawip units or 63% of our overall target of 80,000 units by 2020,” he added.

He said 26 projects had been offered to citizens, from 2013 to 2016, since the Rumawip programme was implemented.

“Some units have already been sold and there are still some in the screening application or sales phase,” Tengku Adnan said.

Also present at the event were Setiawangsa MP Datuk Ahmad Fauzi Zahari, Federal Territories Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Adnan Md Ikhsan, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) executive director (planning) Datuk Mohd Najib Mohd and Aset Kayamas chairman Tan Sri Chai Kin Kong.

Desa Water Park in Jalan Kelang Lama will cease operations today to make way for a mixed development project worth up to RM7bil.

TODAY is Desa Water Park’s final day. The family theme park in Taman Danau Desa, Jalan Kelang Lama in Kuala Lumpur, will close its doors after 16 years of entertaining more than four million visitors from all over the country.

Curtain call: A mixed development consisting of high-end bungalows, multi-storey towers and condominiums as well as Federal Territories Affordable Housing (Rumawip), will be built on the land. The site is next to the Desa Lake.The family-favourite Thunderbolt, one of Asia’s longest uphill water coaster, will come to a permanent halt after today.

The wave pool – a children’s delight – and the surf shack, a tropical-themed structure featuring multi-level platforms integrated with pipes, vales, pulleys, buckets and waterslides – will fall silent.

Land sold to highest bidder

Now the question is what will it be replaced with?

According to Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), who had owned the 16.99ha land that hosted the theme park and a restaurant, a mixed development consisting of highend bungalows, multi-storey towers and condominiums as well Federal Territories Affordable Housing (Rumawip) scheme will be built on the land. The site is next to the Desa Lake.

“DBKL has sold it (the land) to the highest bidder,” said Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz.

While the mayor did not share any other details pertaining to the project, StarMetro learnt that it was an outright sale and DBKL would not have any further ties to the land.

“It was sold on condition that the developer agreed to build affordable homes at the site,” said a DBKL source.

It is also learnt that Berjaya Corp, which operated the Desa Water Park and rented out one of the buildings to the management of the Dragon Hut Restaurant, were given notice to vacate the premises by Sept 30 byDBKL.

DBKL had leased the land to Berjaya Corp. When contacted, a staff from the Berjaya Corp corporate communication department said they were no longer associated with Desa Water Park and hence did not want to comment further.

London’s River Thames cruise?

StarMetro managed to contact the new owners of the land, Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd, who confirmed that they had recently acquired the land from DBKL.

“Yes, we acquired the land about two months ago. Our plans for the area is still at the design and planning stage,” said executive director Michael Chai.

“It is going to be a mixed development with a gross development value of RM6bil to RM7bil.

“We are certainly taking into account the need for affordable homes, as well as leveraging on the lake area,” he said.

“We appreciate the fact that Desa Water Park has been an iconic establishment in this area for many years.

“Which is why we are planning something to give back to the community,” he added.

When asked to elaborate on the plans, Chai said: “Well, we have been visiting London’s River Thames and we have something in mind along those lines.

“All I can say for now is that it is going to be special for the community as a whole.”

Of late, DBKL has been selling off its prime land in the city.

Two years ago, DBKL sold a huge chunk of its land in Jalan Air Jerneh in Setapak, for a mixed development project.

In 2014, Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai highlighted that DBKL had been disposing prime plots through joint venture deals that were not benefitting city folk.

He said the deals were not made through open tender and there were existing facilities on the land.

Tan cited the velodrome in Cheras, DBKL’s Health, Engineering and Mechanical departments in Jalan Cheras and another plot in Jalan Pinang as examples. He said other plots of land had been sold recently in similar fashion.

Only 74 out of 7,325 high-rise residential properties in Peninsular Malaysia earned the top five-star ranking in an evaluation of their property management standards. And more than half are below par, earning only one and two stars.

Future generations will likely live in stratified buildings, so people should try to set a proper precedent for them. Mohammad Ridzwan Abidin

IT is one thing to be a developed state by 2020. But it is another thing entirely to have a developed state of mind – and Malaysians have a long way to go to achieve that.

Take, for instance, condominium and apartment-living.

Some of these properties may come with top notch facilities but when it comes to managing their upkeep, there is much to be desired.

Or so says the latest findings on the quality of managing stratified properties from a survey by the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry.

Every year, the ministry conducts its Strata Scheme Management Quality Evaluation, or “Star Rating”, which ranks the standards of joint management bodies (JMBs) or management corporations (MCs) of apartments and condominiums.

These bodies are ranked based on how they do in seven areas (see graphic below for details); five stars is the highest rank.

getimage-100

But, as it turns out, more than half – or 69% – of condominiums and apartments nationwide ranked “below par”, scoring only one and two stars in 2015. In 2014, a slightly smaller percentage, 65%, were ranked below par.

Only 1% – or 74 – out of 7,325 strata development schemes surveyed earned five stars in the 2015 ratings, made available to Sunday Star.

If such a trend continues, future residents will inherit poor standards of living amidst modern facilities.

Currently, almost six million Malaysians out of 20 million city folk are living in stratified buildings like apartments and condominiums.

“But this number is expected to rise in future as the country progresses and becomes more urbanised,” says Mohammad Ridzwan Abidin, Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry urban service division under-secretary.

He says one of the major problems that condo dwellers continue to face is the refusal of other residents to pay maintenance fees. Other problems are building defects and matters involving enforcement.

“For now, about 70% of residents are at a level where they are merely aware of what needs to be done in managing their property. They are not yet at a level to appreciate the benefits of cooperating with each other and creating a better living culture,” he says.

Mohamad Ridzwan says there is a need to change the mindset of people to foster more civic-minded communities in high-rise buildings.

“Future generations will likely live in stratified buildings, so people should try to set a proper precedent for them,” he says.

He points out that there are also more people moving out of landed properties and into high-rise buildings.

“This group of people will have to learn to adapt to the culture of living in stratified buildings as it is different from living in houses.

“They will need to be more inclusive of and cooperative with their neighbours,” he says, adding that they would also have to learn to be more considerate when it comes to using shared facilities.

Stressing that it all boils down to the mindset of residents, Mohamad Ridzwan highlights the case of Rumah Pangsa Orkid, a low-cost flats property in Ulu Tiram, Johor, which made it into the Malaysia Book Of Records in 2014 for obtaining the ISO 9001:2008 standard for exemplary management.

“Until today, they remain the only low cost flat development to have achieved this,” he says, adding that there are yet to be any high-end condominiums accorded the same standard.

Mohamad Ridzwan says the ministry will continue to actively educate dwellers on proper management of their properties.

“We will embark on more education programmes to promote better practices through advertisements in the mass media,” he says.

On the Strata Management Tribunals to hear disputes, Mohamad Ridzwan says four such tribunals have been successfully set up to cover different zones in Peninsular Malaysia.

“Since their formation the tribunals have heard about 200 cases per month,” he says.

In March, Sunday Star reported that residents who do not pay maintenance fees and other charges were set to face the music, with the Government forming a team to strengthen the enforcement of the Strata Management Act.

The Act also enables residents to take their disputes to a Strata Management Tribunal to settle matters.

Building Managers Association of Malaysia committee member Richard Chan agrees that the “biggest and most critical” problem is the collection of fees, saying that it is rare that JMBs or MCs are able to collect payment from 80% of residents.

“It is more common for the collection rate to be at 40% or 50%,” he says.

Chan laments that petty excuses are often given by residents to defend their refusal to pay up.

“Some refuse because they don’t use the facilities.

“When people ask why they don’t want to pay, they simply say they don’t swim or play tennis,” he shares.

Chan adds that many unit owners live elsewhere or are based overseas and so are reluctant to pay.

“Some are not satisfied with services like garbage collection and defy orders to settle the fees,” he says.

He urges future condo owners to refrain from buying properties that come with all sorts of facilities if they are unwilling to pay up.

“Sometimes, it isn’t about whether they can afford the fees or service charges. It is about their attitude and mentality.

“Some don’t pay simply because their neighbours are not paying and are getting away with it,” Chan says, adding that such attitudes have resulted in some apartments owing up to RM200,000 in water and electricity bills.

The lack of money in the sinking fund also hinders JMBs and MCs from paying for major works like repairing lifts.

“It becomes a vicious cycle. Because people are not satisfied with the upkeep of the place, they do not pay the fees.

“But when they do not pay, there isn’t enough funds for upkeep,” he says.

Also, developers must do their part by informing all potential property buyers of the exact amount of all service charges, says Chan.

“Developers will try to promote their projects for more sales but they should also inform buyers of the fees they are expected to pay.

“Owners should also consider that, after a year, the fees may go up as warranty periods for equipment expire,” he says.

Federation of Malaysian Consumers Associations secretary-general Datuk Paul Selvaraj says many complaints against MCs have been made to the federation.

“High-end condominiums are generally better managed. We received a lot of complaints from people in medium cost apartments,” he says.

He says that consumers and the building management should both be more responsible.

“Consumers need to settle payments that they have agreed to. But they should also be receiving good service in return, like efficient rubbish collection,” he says.

Selvaraj highlights that the only way forward is for management bodies and residents to have a good working relationship.

“People should understand that managing their building is a collective responsibility.

“More dialogues should be held on how to improve the community to ensure good quality of life wherever we live,” he adds.

Room for improvement

THERE are mixed views, but apartment and condominium residents generally agree that there is room for improvement in managing their shared living spaces.

Long standing issues continue to plague condo dwellers, such as poor cleanliness, wrongful use of facilities, low collection of maintenance fees and security problems.

Some believe in boils down to a lack of cooperation among residents while others have taken the developers and the management bodies to task.

A condominium resident in Petaling Jaya, who wishes to be known only as Aaron, says the joint management body (JMB) in his building finds it tough to make changes because of the attitude of his neighbours.

He laments that some residents do not dispose of rubbish properly despite signs being put up to advise them.

“Even if the bin is not full, some just toss their trash on the floor.

“This is the typical ugly Malaysian mindset – since they have already paid to keep the place clean, why should they bother so much?” says the 32-year-old engineer.

Aaron also notes that lifts are sometimes vandalised with graffiti.

“The JMB is trying hard to get things right but it’s the people living here who need to cooperate to ensure it works,” he says, adding that many of the units have been bought up by property investors, and such units are left vacant since the owners do not live in them.

Because of this, they do not pay maintenance fees, causing Aaron’s building to be poorly maintained.

“Some rent out their properties to tenants, who do not care and are not bothered about paying for the shared facilities like the swimming pool,” Aaron says.

While his JMB blocks the access cards of residents who refused to pay up to encourage more payment, the move isn’t effective enough.

Julian Ding, who used to live in an apartment in Ara Damansara, Petaling Jaya, says some residents who smoke can be inconsiderate by throwing their cigarette butts out of the window, which eventually end up on balconies and in common areas.

He also recalls that some residents do not use shared amenities properly – he’s seen people dragging chairs into the swimming pool and leaving them there.

“There were also some security problems. Once, an unknown man had followed a female resident into the compound,” says the 31-yearold father of a baby girl.

Ding now lives in a condominium in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, and says his current neighbours are better, with only a fraction not up-to-date with maintenance fees.

“Facilities are fixed if complaints are made and the area is generally clean. But I suppose this is because it is a low density condominium with only 70 units,” he says.

Teacher R. Nithia, a resident in Penang, says the management corporation (MC) in her apartment is problematic because the new post bearers are continuously bickering with the former MC members.

“While they are feuding, the residents are caught in between,” the 40-year-old complains.

She says there are security issues that need to be addressed, such as cars being scratched and vandalised despite the apartment having guards on duty.

“Our access cards to the car park have also been duplicated by non-residents.

“But while we have tried to raise this to the MC, they seem to be more concerned in undoing what the former MC members have done, like changing contractors and the security company,” Nithia says.

Meanwhile, there are some who feel the project developer, who is usually part of the JMB, should do more, especially if there are complaints about the building.

An IT manager who wants to be known only as Johan says the developer of his condominium in Subang Jaya, Selangor, had initially led the JMB but was slow to act on complaints about the workmanship of the building.

“There were many issues, including tiles popping up after only three years,” says the 32-year-old.

He says residents were also promised that their units would be equipped with broadband Internet but the developer has failed to provide such a service.

The JMB, led by the developer, also overpaid for certain services like security when they paid the salaries for eight guards but only six were actually doing the job.

“Last month, the residents took over the management as an MC, and we hope things will improve,” he says, adding that the residents plan to bring up their issues with the developer with the Strata Management Tribunal.

PARKING dodgers in the Federal capital owe Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) more than Rm10mil in unpaid parking summonses for various offences committed from Oct 1, 2015 up to March 31 this year.

According to DBKL’S data, the highest amount racked up by an individual was RM2,700 for 14 traffic infringements committed in less than a year.

The serial offender broke traffic laws mostly in Bukit Damansara and Solaris Hartamas.

In a list of top 10 hot spots for traffic violations, Solaris Mont Kiara comes up tops with the most number of tickets issued as well as unpaid tickets.

Sri Hartamas, Bukit Damansara, Bangsar and Brickfields are also high on the list.

The figures, however, do not include the whopping Rm70mil in unpaid summonses racked up from 2008 to October 2015.

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz, who revealed the numbers, said he was weary of “pampered” city folk who did not want to be accountable for their actions.

“All this while, we have been running at a loss because we have been too kind. This ends now.

“When it comes to parking, we are going after these serial non-payers who owe DBKL for unpaid parking summonses,” he said.

The mayor added that traffic offenders who did not pay their summonses would not be able to renew their road tax in future as DBKL was currently working with the Road Transport Department (JPJ) to synchronise data using technology from Sweden called CALE. The enforcement system dubbed Gtechna is being used by its new parking operators appointed by Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan (YWP).

Last year, DBKL appointed YWP, the welfare arm of the Federal Territories Ministry, to manage the city’s parking system.

Those who have accumulated compound notices and have yet to make payment will be blaklisted.

According to DBKL data, from Oct 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016, out of 191,207 compound notices issued, only 26,573, or about 7%, had paid up.

Statistics from January to July showed that 746,185 notices were issued for obstruction of traffic and 4,857 vehicles were towed. However, less than 2% of the fines had been paid by offenders.

The offences include double parking, parking on yellow lines, parking in bays designated for the disabled, parking in loading zones, and abusing reserved lots and parking in no-stopping areas.

“Parking has always been privatised in the city, but for decades, DBKL has been losing money.

“We literally had to chase the previous parking operators for our dues and still end up spending more.

“City folk took advantage of the loopholes in the system and did not pay up, but we are putting a stop to that now.

“With the new system operated by YWP, we can nab culprits who break the law and do not pay up. We are going after all of them,” Amin Nordin said.

YWP introduced a new and advanced parking system called the City Car Park System (CCP) in partnership with a company called Vista Summerose Sdn Bhd.

Under the agreement, YWP would pay DBKL 35% or RM600,000 of the gross revenue from parking every month.

“Since the new operators took over last October, I am happy to say that we have seen revenue instantly every month between RM600,000 to Rm1mil depending on the amount collected.

“Now before people start saying that we are only about making money, let me clarify that it is also about getting motorists to be accountable for their actions.

“You break the law, you face the consequences! Please change your behaviour first,” Amin Nordin said.

The recent clamping blitz all over the city since Sept 1 is an indication that the mayor means business.

Using Scan Cars equipped with the Gtechna system, DBKL enforcement officers have been capturing car registration plates instantly when within range and are immediately able to segregate data of traffic offenders who had paid their summonses and the ones who have not.

Serial offenders who were found to have parked their cars illegally and with a record of owing thousands of ringgit in unpaid tickets, will find their cars clamped and towed away.

The mayor said the owner would then have to pay compound of RM50, and another RM50 as clamping charges to release the wheel clamp.

“After that, they will be asked to sign a guarantee promising to settle the remaining unpaid summonses.

“If they refuse, we will see them in court. I am no longer going to be Mr Nice Guy, so my advice is to be a good citizen and pay up,” he reiterated.

Revision follows public outcry

KUALA LUMPUR: In an aboutturn, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has reduced parking charges by up to 33% depending on the locality, after motorists raised a hue and cry.

Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the parking rates would be reduced from today.

New parking rate

“As a caring government, we have taken into account views from the public and lowered the rates.

“The implementation of the new rates is based on the principle of moving people not vehicles,” he said in a statement.

The charges at DBKL-owned parking bays in the central business district (CBD) will be reduced to RM1.50 for the first hour and RM2.50 for the second hour.

This is a 25% reduction compared with the previous charge of RM2 for the first hour and RM3 for subsequent hours.

On July 18, the new parking charges saw hikes of between 100% and 200%.

DBKL justified the increase by saying that the rates had not been revised for 40 years.

Tengku Adnan said areas outside the CBD would also see a reduction.

Rates in areas categorised as high activity such as Sentul, Solaris Mont Kiara, Sri Hartamas, Bangsar, Brickfields and Sri Petaling will be lowered by 33% from RM1.50 per hour to RM1 per hour.

Meanwhile, zones outside the city would be cut by 20% from RM1 per hour to 80 sen per hour.

These areas include Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Sungai Besi, Wangsa Maju, Overseas Union Garden and Segambut.

Motorists can buy a monthly pass, ranging between RM150 and RM300, according to the zone.

As for reserved parking bays, a fee of between RM240 and RM400 per month is applicable.

DBKL has appointed Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan, the welfare arm of the Federal Territories Ministry, to manage the city’s parking system.
