I understand the management is open on Saturday (half day)... You can pay the bills... or complain if you like


Is it? I thought they only open on Saturday for certain period??

There is a memo on the lift... The management has decided open the Sky Garden conjunction of New Year 2009 celebration. But the residents need to register with the management and pay RM30 for the access card. The deposits will be fully return after the residents return the access card...



I saw that too. Also in the price list of the facilities. Per visit is RM30 deposit(refundable). Holding a party, RM150 deposit(refundable) + RM150 fee(non-refundable). Just saw somebody was holding a party there last weekend.

I was told by my frens that some indians were asking for money from the contractor (outside contrator, not panel contractor) while they were doing the renovation. I'm quite surprise how these indians ppl could come up to the condo. This is really a serious case which is related to our home security. Anyone hav such experience or heard from his/her contractor?

i just did my 2nd defect complaint today and the supervisor is kind enough to follow me and fill in the form for me Surprised
when i told him to mark down that the stopper at the main door was not install (the tiles with stopper was crack previously and new tiles have been replaced) he even suggest me better not to install the stopper, cos in futute the tiles might crack again if the door happen to bang the stopper hard.
but what i dislike is my access card still malfunction after several complaint Confused

I had an electrician come in to fix my lights yesterday. He parked his car by the road along the side of the flats. When he was done, his car was broken into and his power tools were stolen. And this happened in broad daylight! I'm wondering now if this is a safe place live in!

at facility level, computer room, and pool room i always see those outsider (believed from opposite flat) lepak-lepak... ...

the access card system nor the security guards are unable to prevent/stop those fellows from going in our condo.

i m wondering how come block A&B din perform the lift system as block C&D. they can easily access to any floor by using block A&B lifts.

Since there have so many problems which the management cant solve, we should form a joint management body to solve the problems and safe guard our interest. Should we owner initiate it instead of waiting for the developer? Regarding the JMB, please refer to : .://..hba.org.my/laws/building/bcpAct2007.htm, section 4 of the Building and Common Property Act, 2007.

I was informed that the Management is incurring losses, and proposed to increase the management fee to RM0.30, but it's still a proposal. The audited accounts are not ready when i asked for a copy in December 2008.

Few issues need to be address:-
1. The DBKL cukai pintu is still high. The land should be mixed development and not commercial. It can be converted but must have a body to force the developer to do so. If it can converted, we will be charged based on the residential rate for all utilities and cukai pintu and tanah.

2. The renewal of the lease back to 99 years. This is promised by the developer when selling the property to us. The Management said they have submitted to the land office and awaiting for approval. but it is quite some time ago, still no news?

As I said previously the lift system got lubang, sometimes the doors at the car park's lift entrances, also the basement, were not closed properly, if they managed to get in, they can use the stair case to access all the residential levels and the facility level.
Anyone saw the CCTV room? Is it next to the mail room?

Must be the power tools that attracted those drug addicts, thieves. Since there are so many cars parked along the side day and night, many are expansive cars, mercedes also got which caused the road to become so narrow that it can only allowed one car to pass thru each time.

Now that the economic merosot, petrol price had dropped to so low, government are going to revise and lower the power tarriffs too. As economists predicted that there will be even more rainny days ahead.
Phase 2 residents have just started to move in. So, It's unreasonable to have a fee hike. Even fry-noodle stalls' uncles & aunties are starting to lower their noodles' prices.
Could it be some units are not paying the monthly fees, so they want to add that to the rest of us.
Renewal of the lease will be even more bleak if the developer had sold all the units.
If the developer really had sold out all the units, shouldnt they hand over the management to JMB, or because we haven't form a JMB?
Is water under commercial rate? As I know, AC is domestic.

and yet,

our community website still on pending....................

According to Building and Common Property Act 2007, JMB have to be formed within 12 months from the date of VP.
thats why developer no action at all... they still hv time for it.
we need to push them for it.

for sure there are some body not paying maintenance fee...
service charge increment is a problem faced by most of the condo/apartment management and so do for residents.

the water charge is under commercial rate, so do the TNB charges.

If someone is not paying, that is not very fair for us who had paid all this while.
Have you received your TNB bill? did you check it carefully? the rate .218 is domestic. commercial rate is much higher.
If there would be any increment on the management fee, their account needed to be audited and justified properly, there should be transperency, full disclosure.

Are there a lot of them not paying? I didn't notice there is such a list. What can they do about it?
fogging every levels?
I have received my TNB bill twice, it's .218. isn't it considered as domestic? Have you check your mailbox?

according to the notice,
"... failing to pay in one week from the reminder letter would lead to cut the water supply of the said unit...."

if i not mistaken,
block A got more than 20 units not paying,
block B around 10 units,
shoplot only one unit.

i juz check my mailbox last week, nothing inside.
i m ready to get the "suprise" for the bill.

i think they only fog at lower level such as basement to carpark to level 6. i heard somebody mentioned that mosquitor can't fly up to certain level... Laughing Laughing Laughing dunno true or not.
