    I believe the Ujana Problems is considered "small", compared to the other Bigger Condos nearby,...

    The purpose of this Post, is to share REAL Experience, and to try find Solutions,..


    "Good Day, All,

    I live in a Strata-Apartment in West Johor, named Ujana Apartments.

    And from the beginning in 2012,December, there have been massive fundamental problems* with this apartment

    Problems were "fixed", however the same problem re-surfaces again and again.

    The developer absolves responsibility, by depending on documents that may be forged.

    JMB was coerced into accepting superficial rectifications, but the defects remain, besides the inexperienced JMB, then-Chairman was believed to be Corrupted, and decided on many issues which went against the interest of Ujana, e.g.the Poolside Decking Repairs,..

    The JMB passed on the problems to the MC, and this 2016,2017, 2018-until April 30th" MC, - being of suspicious in professional ethics- continue to deflect responsibilities to solve the problems*

    This current MC refuses to entertain my queries, refuses to answer my questions <- Does the Strata Act specify that the MC Must give replies, answers ?

    Owners are NOT united, because of majority of Owners, being "Investor-Owners",..

    Problems persists after the DLP,

    MA remains incompetent, and is actively engaged in private un-licenced property Agency-letting of Ujana units,etc.,...

    *Problems,

    1. Fire Monitors NOT working since beginning, in y2012

    2. Water Riser Booster Pump, only 1 of 2 is working

    3.Lightning Arrestors, NOT functioning well. Ujana had experienced at lease 4 lightning strikes over the years & everytime there is a lightning strike, the cctv, car park barriers,..access doors,..etc,..stops working

    4. Defective Lifts - till to-day, there is still NO "Licence-to-Operate" for the Ujana Lifts

    5. ..etc.,..

    Help !!!!!!

    What else, can I do ?
    Legally, the Developer had cleverly escaped Liabilities.

    Would any well-connected persons in this forum, be able to help me - by introducing me to the very Top Executive in UEM-Sunrise, Please ?

    All Your Advice,..is very much Appreciated,
    Thank You,
    Sincerely,

    Actually.. this kind of stuff is common.. we as residents in the strata group just have to swallow it.. in SG n everywhere is like this.. residents can't do anything at all or maybe we can but most of us just prefer to stay silence to avoid any unnecessary complicated problems..

    • In SG,..the poor quality issues are neutered by so-called possibilities of en-bloc ?
      ..and People have lowered expectations,..rush to chase for Tenants,.etc.,.... ?
    As Johor is trying to secure more immigrants to live in these new properties,...such poor-quality issues really are self-sabotauging' the Bigger, Grander Objectives,...

    Most seem to be in a sense of self/mass-denials,...afraid of poorer sentiments resulting in lower rentals - due to revelations of poor quality issues.

    But for the sake of the Greater Good, Long Term,...such issues must be addressed head-on, despite embarassessments, etc.,..

    I need help to seek Justice for Ujana, and other Strata Properties,..

    When I feedback and ask questions to the MC,...I get replies alleging that I am "Defaming" them, and the MC Chairman, Lawrence Tan can have the Audacity to tell Owners, "If You are Not Happy with Ujana, You can simply sell and move out"

    We have a situation whereby this S'porean Chairman, together with another Singaporean "Lawyer", a Clement Franklin adopting threats of Litigation methods to scare most Owners, Residents,....instead of Answering Honest Questions, they give deceptive replies and cleverly use Legal Tricks to avoid Honesty.

    If Owners continue Not to address such issues head-on,... MC's, MA's, Property Managers will continue to Abuse Common Funds resulting in Massive Deterioration of Facilities,...

    Are there other Owners with similar mindsets, situation as I, out there ?
    Please PM Me.

    My objectives are simply to get what was originally promised to us, and to make our respective properties, Home.

    Thank You.

    There is a new government in charge post 9 May. It may be a long shot, but can try filing your grievances with the new Ministers-in-charge, both at the national and state level.
