Tak Boleh Beli Flat Kos Rendah ?

Senior MBPJ officials own low-cost flats
by R. Nadeswaran, Terence Fernandez and Llew-Ann Phang
PETALING JAYA (May 20, 2010): SHE is chauffeur-driven in an official four-wheel drive on duties and states her address in official documents as a double-storey corner terrace house in Kota Damansara. But Sharipah Marhaini Syed Ali is also the owner of the low-cost apartment in Ara Damansara and happens to be the planning director of the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ).

She is not the only senior official owning a low-cost apartment.

MBPJ’s senior assistant engineer, Hanizah Katab, owns one in the same block – and so does about 500 other MBPJ employees, many using the names of wives, husbands and relatives to own low-cost homes in Petaling Jaya.

By her own admission, Sharipah is not the only director who owns a low-cost flat. Questioned by a councillor, she charged that there are other “directors and deputy directors” who own such properties.

In a reply to a memo from Deputy Mayor Puasa Md Taib dated Feb 4, Sharipah argued that “if the policy is that those earning above RM2,500 are not eligible, then all the other officers involved should be asked to explain”.

Going by the state government’s guidelines on eligibility for low-cost units, they would not qualify by a mile because only those having combined family income of less than RM2,500 a month can apply.

However, according to Sharipah, there was a policy introduced in 2001, when the council took over squatter eradication efforts from the state, to allocate low-cost units to council staff.

This decision, however, was in contravention of the state’s policy, which restricted the sale of low-cost units to those with a household income of not more than RM2,500.

Executive councillor in charge of poverty eradication Dr Xavier Jeyakumar said the policy still stands. “The state government’s policy on first-time ownership of low-cost units has not changed, and any exemption by the housing department must be sanctioned by the Exco,” he said.

However, documents made available to theSun revealed how the RM2,500 criteria could be circumvented (see also page 8).

Most, if not all, the low-cost units are not owner-occupied. Instead, they are an extra source of income because they can fetch rentals of up to RM500 a month.

Sharipah’s monthly bank loan repayment is RM322. Her apartment has been unoccupied for two months. According to neighbours, the Indonesian construction workers who were renting it had left for Kuantan after finishing a development project nearby.

Hanizah is collecting RM400 a month from an Indian family of six.

However, a search at MBPJ’s Valuation Department showed that in her application for the low-cost flat, Sharipah gave her address as a double-storey corner house on Jalan Nuri, Section 7 Kota Damansara, estimated at about RM450,000. Hanizah gave an address in Nilai.

The issue of MBPJ staff owning low-cost flats was first raised by councillor K.W. Mak in February when he asked the State Select Committee for Competency, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) to investigate the non-compliance and malpractices in the sale of such apartments to non-eligible applicants.

In a statement last week, Mak said he had written to Mayor Datuk Roslan Sakiman on April 29 to also conduct investigations.

Mak raised the issues after receiving complaints from former squatters who were promised low-cost units but never received offers once the construction of the low-cost flat was completed.

“These former squatters have shown me proof that they were interviewed and given alternative accommodation prior to waiting for the demolition of their village to make way for development and subsequent relocation to the completed flat in their former locale,” he said.

Last week, two residents who had complained to Mak turned to theSun claiming that MBPJ officers had taken away apartments meant for them.

Mak said he has yet to see documents supporting the so-called policy to open up low-cost units to council staff.

In a statement today, MBPJ said developers offered excess units in eight low-cost housing schemes, on private lands, to its management team from year 2000.

Apa kata survey ?

  2. bri,

    isu tu bukan sebab diorang jadi 1st owner ke?

    aku rase, subsale (dan lelong) x terikat dgn isu ni, as long as ikot prosedur 🙂

  3. cerita ini cuma disensasikan aje….kalau betul salah, kenapa cuma pegawai ni aje yg kena? Pegawai MPSJ? MPK? MPAJ?MBSA? SUK?….wah…wah…

  4. Treecool – Subsale tak terlibat Treecool ?
    hehehe.. how sure are you ?

    Palie – ada orang buat surat beracun…
    Hafiz – ni permulaan. Surat beracun tu dihantar ke media.

  5. Bri.. mcmn nak tau rumah mana affected..

    Nak tanya.. mcmn nak add rss feed blog kwn2 mcm ko buat ni.. aku dah cari nota tak jumpa2 la..

    dari atas tu kalau yg aku paham, mmg dia kate utk beli baru je tak bole bri.

  7. biasanya subsale masih kena ikut rule mcm 1st owner..
    in one side of view, rule ni bagus gak sebenarnya.. sbb low income group ni takde rumah lain dah diorg boleh beli… tgk la projek baru semua mahal2..

  8. tapi kalau lelong, low income group pn tak beli…habis tu takkan nak dibiarkan je macam tu? aap solution yang boleh dilakukan di sini bila low income group pn tak boleh nak beli…n at the first place,rumah tu kena lelong pn pasal the first owner which come from from low income group takleh nak serve loan? adakah salah investor sebab beli rumah low cost?

    Tapi kalau ada kes low cost group di deny hak mereka untuk memiliki rumah baru low cost pasal ada ‘special people’ nak beli, tu memang tidak adil la…hampuk je diorang tu…

  9. Salam, semua sya ada tertnaya-tanyer pasai hal nie hari tur.. sampai saya check ngan lawyer and some senior property agent. masalahnya concern hanya perlu jikalau beli sub-sale yang dah ada title kalo master tittle, wajib kena mintak lembaga perumhaan negeri selangor. kalo nasib baik title dah keluar takpayah nak mintak concern… sbb title dah jadik milik owner.. so kalo sub-sale jadik senang. tapi some area diorang tak indicate perlu ker xperlu concern masih blurr… pasai lelong lagi sya xpasti.. sya syorkan kalo bila umah lowcost, cari yang dah keluar title. mcm baru2 nie sya ambik satu kat angsana subang mewah usj1. title dah ade insyallah semuayer beras, nie umah lowcost…tapi sewa bleh pergi 450~550 basic unit. Sya pun ade check ngan master Bri kita hari tur pasal concer nie…. ok arious

  17. kalau kes subsale ni, kadar income lain sket.income tidak boleh lebih 5 ribu.lot bumi ke bumi shj.bumi ke non bumi memang tak lepas kat LPHS.tapi non-bumi ke bumi boleh.

    • kalau subsale syaratnya – income bawah 5K dan belum pernah beli rumah lagi.. payah la kalau nak cari pembeli

    • kalau subsale syaratnya – income bawah 5K dan belum pernah beli rumah lagi..payah la kalau nak cari pembeli

      memang rumah kos rendah ni tujuan dia bukan untuk dijualbeli

  18. Saya nak minta nasihat tuan mengenai rumah kos rendah yg saya plan nak jual. Area di Jln Matahari,seksyen U5 Shah Alam. Ramai bakal pembeli frust bila tahu syarat2 ketat pembelian- Gaji bawah 5K dan belum pernah membeli rumah .
    Saya nak tahu kalau saya pergi Pejabat SUK terus utk dapatkan senarai pembeli ,boleh tak? Saya memang urgent nak jual rumah . Terima kasih byk2.

    • tuan,

      tuan kena cari Pembeli yang menepati syarat…

      List yang SUK ada adalah utk yang akan dibina.
      Unless kalau tuan nak jual RM42,000 sahaja.

      Saya pun nak.

  19. Saya dalam proses jual beli rumah apartment di Seri Kembangan Selangor . Dah 2 bulan di buat dengan peguam di Seremban begitu lambat oleh kerana katanya kena jalani selidikan oleh pejabat tanah Daerah Petaling Negeri Selangor. Pembeli saya adalah seorang Bumiputra yang bekerja di Seremban. Sata juga seorang bumiputera.
    Tak mungkin ada sebarang halangan ?!

    • mungkin juga, sebab kelulusan dibuat oleh Menteri Besar Negeri.

      Mungkin MB ada bnyk kerja bulan tersebut, mungkin ada kertaskerja yang tidak mencukupi..
      apa apa sahaja boleh berlaku

  24. Salam Tuan Bri,

    Kalau saya nak beli sub-sale rumah kos rendah kena patuhi syarat2 Lembaga Hartanah Selangor. Pendapatan <5K lepas, tapi husband sudah ada sebiji rumah kos rendah (dah abis bayar), masih boleh ker saya boleh beli sub-sale low cost ni?…Ada desperate seller nak let go below market value? Patut atau tak patut saya proceed, silap2 dah sain S&P, pindah milik tak lepas..wah..nangis nak burn duit processing…

    • Saya pun da try beli, loan da lepas, SNP da sain..perumahan xlulus consent sebab husband da ade rumah di selangor. burn duit proses 🙁

    • Burn duit proses.. Mksudnya bukan deposit 10% kan.. Duit proses tu berapa?

  25. Burn duit proses.. Mksudnya bukan deposit 10% kan.. Duit proses tu berapa?

  26. Sy dh ada rumah low cost atas nama sendiri.. Skrg nk beli rumah low cost apartment sri indah, seri kembangan atas nama isteri sahaja.. Adakah proses pindahmilik boleh dilakukan?.. Jika tidak boleh apakah kesan trhadap deposit 10%?.. Adakah rumah low cost tertentu sahaja yg kena ikut syarat2 sekatan trsebut..

  27. berkenaan burn duit proses or deposit or whatever duit yg pembeli bayar, adakah agen hartanah or pihak yg menjual mengambil kesempatan diatas kelemahan ilmu perumahan atau kekangan syarat yg tidak diketahui oleh pembeli? spatutnya pembeli ada hak untuk u-turn atau dirundingkn supaya mencari aset lain yg lebih layak jika syarat2 asas tidak menepati di awal2 proses pembelian- win2 situation.
