PUTRAJAYA - A house buyer's worst nightmare is not only finding his dream home plagued with defects but also to be told that the documents for Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) is fake.
For Puncak Saujana residents in Kajang, it has been a disappointment from the time the house owners moved into the area in 2010.
With sinking porches and back lanes, leaking roofs, clogged drains and cracks, high moisture, mould and faulty plumbing, it was anything but a dream home.
After several failed meetings with the developer, Kajang Municipal Council and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission to air their grouses, the residents lodged a report with the Housing and Local Government Ministry last week.
A spokesman for the ministry said they called for a meeting with the residents, developer and Kajang Municipal Council yesterday.
Mohd Izwan Zakaria, who acted as the residents' leader, said 138 double-storey houses had defects and the owners were disappointed with the developer for the shoddy work.
"The developer did not fix any of the problems such as the cracks, but had asked the homeowners to handle the rest as their warranty period had expired."
For now, residents will have to bear with the cracks while waiting for the results of the meeting.
"Many residents are worried because of the cracks in their kitchen. When it rains, our houses are 'flooded' inside. It is not safe to live under such conditions," said Izwan said.
