Kuala Lumpur (March 30): All stakeholders and property developers must be able to work with strata living and management to ensure an orderly communal living environment in the country, said the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia (Rehda).
Even though there is a lot of successful developments years ago, it will still become an issue after years of their handover,” says Datuk Seri FD Iskandar Mohamed Mansor, Rehda president. Statistics from the National Property Information Centre showed that as of the third quarter of 2017, there are a total of 1.58 million residential strata units, housing about 20% of Malaysia’s population.
The common issue of strata property management faced by property owners includes failing to pay maintenance fees, unable to upkeep of common area, doing renovation works that do not comply with rules, and property owners who are reluctant to involved in management.
Datuk Jeffrey Ng, chairman of REHDA noted that land scarcity and higher land costs is the cause of strata high-rise living in Malaysia. “The purpose of this book is to educate strata property owners about what is strata management, so that they can build a cohesive and harmonious community,” he added.
Rehda Institute is providing this book from their Facebook page to make sure we are knowledgeable about strata management. The pricing to buy online is RM58.
(Published by Rehda Institute to guide people with obligations, duties, responsibilities, powers, rights, procedures, expectations, limitations and liabilities in strata living and management.)
