SHAH ALAM, AUG 10: Accessibility to house ownership is the State Government’s policy now, reflecting a government that thrive to reduce the income gap among citizens.
The State Government is not only thriving to expand accessibility to own Rumah Selangorku but it is also reviving abandoned projects in Selangor in line with Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali’s motto, ‘Membangun Bangsa, Memakmur Negeri’.
Housing, Building Management and Urban Settlement Exco, Dato’ Iskandar Abdul Samad said since the change of administration in March 2008, 53 abandoned housing projects were salvaged involving 24,660 houses.
He said, problems left by Barisan Nasional Government at that time were successfully resolved by the current State Government.
In fact, he said that the State Government took into account policies through the Selangor Housing and Property Board (LPHS) to act as facilitator in resolving abandoned project issues.
“Among the policies are helping to form an action committee so that any further actions as well as relevant bodies would require agreements from at least 85% of buyers.
“LPHS’s role is to issue an abandoned project validation letter which the buyers can use to deal to deal with banks to restructure monthly payments from financiers or banks,” he said.
Besides that, he said the State Government also provides consultation and guidelines for buyers to bring their cases to the Housing and Local Government Ministry (KPKT).
Among LPHS’s policies in helping buyers is forming a joint-action committee where buyers can coordinate with the authorities.
One of the measures is asking all shop-lot owners to form a join-action committee.
