Press statement by YAB Tuan Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang at KOMTAR on the 15th of December, 2014.

The State government has facilitated the rehabilitation of Phase 2A of the abandoned Majestic Heights project involving 370 property owners, by successfully procuring PLB Sdn Bhd to agree to rehabilitate the same. This project was abandoned since 1998.

After the announcement of the said rescue project by PLB Sdn Bhd in April this year, the white knight company has now finalised the construction agreement which is to be executed by the purchasers and their subsidiary, PLB KH Bina Sdn Bhd.

Amongst others the pertinent terms in the agreement is that the purchaser will pay a sum of RM10,000.00 to a firm of solicitors which will hold the same as stakeholders, whereby RM5,000.00 will be disbursed to the company upon commencement of works and the balance RM5,000.00 will be disbursed upon completion of the said project. It should be noted the sum of RM10,000.00 was agreed upon after successful negotiation by the State government and the company which had initially proposed RM45,000.00 be paid by each purchaser for the rehabilitation of the said abandoned Phase 2A of Majestic Heights. The total cost involved to revive the said abandoned phase 2A of Majestic Heights stands at RM17 million.

Further, after successful negotiation between the State government and the company, the company has agreed to extend the defect liability period from 3 months to 12 months.

Under the said construction agreement the company has agreed to proceed with the rehabilitation works after a minimum number of 220 purchasers execute the said agreement. The execution of the said agreement between the company and the purchasers which began last Wednesday has todate seen 127 purchasers execute the said agreement.

It is hoped that the remaining purchasers will come forward and execute the said agreement. Towards this end they can do so by coming to the 53rd floor of KOMTAR this coming Wednesday, 17 December 2014 from 2pm until 4pm or make an appointment with the solicitors Salina, Lim Kim Chuan & Co.

The Penang state government views seriously the plight of those purchasers which have become victims of abandoned housing projects and will facilitate to the best of its ability the rehabilitation of such projects in the interests of the said victimised purchasers.

槟州首席部长林冠英于2014年12月15日在槟城光大发表的声明:

槟州政府成功振兴共有370名购屋者的大华高原2A计划,撮成国云集团有限公司振兴这项自1998起即被搁置的房屋发展计划。

国云集团在今年4月份作出宣布后,这家白武士公司目前正敲定将由购屋者及其旗下子公司PLB KH Bina 有限公司的建筑合约。

合约条款当中,包括购屋者只需缴付1万令吉总额给同时代表双方的律师楼,即首批5千令吉在工程启动时,将发放给有关的发展商,余额的5千令吉则将会在有关计划完工后发放。原本国云集团向州政府建议,每一名购屋者需缴交4万5千令吉以复兴大华高原2A房屋发展计划。不过,经过州政府与发展商的谈判后,发展商同意只向每名购屋者征收1万令吉。振兴大华高原2A房屋发展计划,总开销为1千700万令吉。

在州政府的谈判下,发展商也同意将有关计划的缺陷责任期,从原有的3个月延长至 12个月。

在有关的建筑合约下,国云集团同意在收集至少220名购屋者履行协议后,就会执行是项振兴大华高原2A房屋计划的协议。有关公司与购屋者的协议,从上周三起迄今,共获得127名购屋者履行协议。

我们希望剩余的购屋者,能够挺身履行协议。他们可以在本周三(12月17日)下午2时至4时之间到光大53楼与相关的律师安排日期。

槟州政府严正看待被搁置房屋发展计划的事件,并将会竭尽所能,重振这些被搁置的计划,以为被牺牲的购屋者讨回一个公道。

林冠英
