Five-year wait of house buyers set to end

The buyers of terrace houses at Lestari Puchong and Saujana Puchong could finally breathe a sigh of relief as they are expected to get their long-overdue house keys by the end of the year.

A press statement issued by Selangor State Exco for Housing, Building Management and Squatters  has stated that the housing projects are completed and are only pending a Certificate of Fitness (CF).

The conclusion was reached during a meeting between the buyers, the Subang Jaya Municipal Council  (MPSJ), National Water Services Commission (SPAN), Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (SYABAS), the Selangor Housing and Property Board (LPHS), and also the developers last Tuesday.

With the physical development reaching 100 per cent, the project now only requires SYABAS’ approval before it could attain a CF.

An inspection is expected to take place on 18 and 20 October before the CF is issued.

The houses are expected to be completely fit for residency latest by the end of November, which would end a grueling wait that has spanned more than 5 years for the buyers.

Both these projects were closely monitored by the Special Task Force for Abandoned Projects, which was formed by the EXCO office.

These two projects would comprise of 275 terrace houses at Lestari Puchong, and a further 192 terraces at Saujana Puchong, all of which consist of single storey and double storey varieties.

The projects were previously being developed by Talam Corporation (Talam), whose subsequent financial constraints affected many of their development projects.

Talam had subsequently appointed IJM Corporation (IJM) as a contractor to complete the construction process.
