    Hello all. I heard when sign the S&P, we have to sign an agreement, giving right to developer to change the outer layout? very unfair ler like this…

    Agreed, this is not fair to buyers like us. Facilities and condo design can be easily changed out of our control. We should not sign for this agreement.

    Hi, may I know if anyone booked 25th floor & above, your car park allocated at lower floor 3rd floor?

  3. Emily
    April 4th, 2017 at 19:31 | #3

    I mean lower than 3rd floor?

    @Emily

    Car parks at 1st – 3rd floors are for sale, as I know.

  5. Hello
    April 4th, 2017 at 23:39 | #5

    @Emily

    The higher your unit is, the lower your car parks are.
    My unit is at low floor, so my car parks are at high floor.

  6. Hello
    April 4th, 2017 at 23:41 | #6

    @Emily

    Car parks from LG to 2nd floors are for sale only, not initially allocated for buyers.
    To clear confusion, Reen’s “1st floor” means LG floor, “3rd floor” means 2nd floor.

    Seriously I stay nearby and planes are flying over and over every hour, some even at low latitude. So sound pollution is one thing, slight vibration at top floor may be significant. Try to stay a night at Crystal Villa Condo and you will feel it. I do not know why and how this project can be approved since it is so near to airport?

    Info from a person who signed:

    “Upon signing, u will be asked to sign another 4 letters of agreement for outer amendment, in case the architect wants to change any outer parts of the project, including the layout and facilities. To get the amendment approval from different authorities, including perbandaran, ALL buyers have to agree and sign these 4 agreements. “

  13. Hmm
    April 6th, 2017 at 11:00 | #13

    @Will

    The lawyer called.
    I suppose it is compulsory to sign because the lawyer just said there is an option to cancel the purchase.
    The justification given is to avoid construction delay (due to getting buyers’ consent delay) if the authority requested for any building change at the later stage.
    It sounds “right” but it gives developer the utmost authority for any change

    In the eye of law, anything sign on top of APDL and SPA, will automatic Void. Our sign date is example 7Apr, but SPA date is 25Apr, then the document sign on 7-Apr automatically void or illegal. I have warmed the lawyer not to miss lead us, else i will complain to Bar Council.

  17. Jenn
    April 6th, 2017 at 11:44 | #17

    Now a day developer and lawyer do this kind of illegal action to threaten buyer to cancel purchase, and mislead buyer to sign invalid document.

    Do remember, when you sign anything, pls write down the DATE clearly. This will help us keeo the prove that developer mislead us to sign document, the court will bring justice to u.

    Hahaha.

    Change facade?
    Already fully sold, why still need to change facade?
    Under what situation, authority ask to chg building facade?
    If later developer change to like a weird or monster facade look, can we withdraw 100% and what?

  19. Shahrul
    April 6th, 2017 at 12:17 | #19

    By the time you find out facade changed your bank would have fully released the payment to developer liao lo. How to withdraw? bbye bye

    April 6th, 2017 at 12:20 | #20

    @Jenn

    Actually thin about it carefully, if you find these practices are unlawful dont buy . Once you buy have the prgress payments released etc, would you want to sue the developer in court all over and spend on legal fees ???? its just not practical at all. So if youre not confident dont go ahead . If you proceed just take the risk thats all

    Did anyone ask to developer directly whether Prisma Bumiraya is under RID Reka Indah
    and Orchard Ville was one of their project? Credibility of developer is most important in my opinion. Buyer should have rights to know the truth.@ThinkPositive

  26. Hello
    April 7th, 2017 at 09:28 | #26

    For my knowledge,

    1. Pearl Ocean is a new company formed by one of RID bosses.
    2. RID is going to be retired from the market, as two of RID bosses are retiring.
    3. Prisma Bumiraya is a subsidiary company under Pearl Ocean, not RID.
    4. Orchard Ville is RID’s project, not Pearl Ocean’s. So far the feedback from Orchard Ville owners is positive in terms of the condo condition, which they feel satisfied with the end product.

    I heard price increased rm29k/unit… sweat..

  28. Novus Buyer
    April 7th, 2017 at 11:45 | #28

    To obtained the APDL, developer shall fulfill the 2 major compliance as below:-

    1) SiFUS must obtained – mean all the drawing must clear and approved by MBPP/PTG
    2) Deposit 3% cash of the total construction cost into the HDA account

    If developer comply those. only cant obtained the APDL………..usually the 3% cash into the HDA account is more concerning for the developer

  29. Knight

    @Hello Good to hear that. If Pearl Ocean is a newly formed company. Is Pearl Ocean financially stable? Some buyers might have concern on newly formed company on project abandon due to financial problem. How do you think?

  30. Knight
    April 7th, 2017 at 13:02 | #30

    @Novus Buyer If 3% cash also Can’t allocated by developer. How a developer has capability to complete a condo project? hrmmmm…….

  31. Hello
    April 7th, 2017 at 13:09 | #31

    @Knight

    For finance stability in Pearl Ocean, I can’t confirm. But one thing I know that Pearl Ocean’s employees are originated from RID. So there is certain confidence for this project in my point of view.

    I staying at top floor (4th to be exact) and sound from plane can be heard easily with windows closed. Of course, If you are staying as high as 44 floors, the impact may be even significant. Planes starts at 7.15am till midnight. Just my 2 cents.

    It is true here, i just notice Orchard Ville is very messy now and the finishing and delivery are terrible. RID and Prisma boss may be in trouble to fund for the compensation and messive defect rectification for the condo owner. I personally met a few Orchard Ville and i onlu can use 1 word to describe their situaltion now. “CRY” “CRY” and “CRY”.
    Pls go and learn more of this RID and Prisma Bumiraya.
    Finally, I decided not to proceed to buy this Project, i will let 19-Apr date line to pre-sign the SPA, i will not sign and let them reject me.

    as ppl said go outside u will feel the noise so just stay inside

    must go through the air-port authority if that area within
    certain distance to the air-port.

    This morning I waited outside of my factory open space beside Intel from 8:30am to 9:00 am. There were 2 flights took off from airport i. e. Air Asia. And Cathay Pacific. The sound seems loud but not too bad. The route was not towards Krystal Point area but turned to sea direction. Probably whose unit face to QB can see good view of flight take off. If someone work there, please share your experience.

    @Knight

    I do searched an article “Noise In High Rise Building”, the following factors are important in defining the levels of acoustic amenity in high rise building. Road traffics and aircraft noise are a significant impact into high rise building and when buildings are located near major traffic routes of under aircraft flight paths, whoever it is appropriate to consider acoustic double glazing systems to manage aircraft noise.

    Novus is an isolated tower (stand alone), compare to Melati flat although only 5 storey high building will much noisy because the sound reflective theory cause the acoustic reflection and echo valley effect. For example The Light also suffering for the sound pollution because the Jelutong Express Way cause the sound reflection via the echo valley effect.

    Hence, base on this article theory. If the building is stand alone the sound paths reflection will reduce because there is no echo valley cause the sound travel from building to building ( this maybe happen to Melati Flats).

    In fact I have friend stay at the Taman Sri Nibong, double storey terrace house and Lavinia Apartment. What is they feedback to me Aircraft noisy is not an issue at thier place. Therefore, maybe this is because the acoustic reflection at the Melati flat (multiple towers) and maybe less for the future Novus Tower.

    No idea about Novus area but you can hear loud aeroplane noise and coastal highway traffic noise at Lavinia. The higher you go, the noisier it gets for both types of noise.
    It’s all subjective. Some ppl just get used to the noise and therefore are not affected.

    I believe he won’t repeat same mistake as Orhard Ville.
    Besides, there are another 2 land nearby Novus owned by Prisma Bumiraya. I don’t think he wants to screw up in his first project.

    They are many hit and run developer screw them self up.

    But in fact, today purchaser awarement and legal channel are ready to go after developer.
    Sue them in court you will get what you want, and this is the move worry thing for developer. Hire Architect Centre and Civil Engineer to sue developer. Nightmare for developer.
    2-4 purchaser sue developer already nightmare, if 100-200 purchasers sue together, this developer will be ready to bankrup.

    c) A Sttuctural Engineer (RM8K, only needed if Architect suggest to hire)
    d) A Quantity Survayor (RM3K only if the claimed cost are complicated, else, simple contractor can quote for you)

    Very likely u will win in court, and you can claim all the rectification cost, and above (a) to (d) cost.

  105. Novus Buyer
    April 16th, 2017 at 20:53 | #105

    Hi all

    I so sympathy to the Orchard Ville buyers for what they facing now. As I already brought the Novus, I need to take all consideration and feedback from all the Penang Property Talk viewer, some are good , some are bad. What I can summarize for the Novus project feedback so far, only aircraft noise is the negative feedback, non other then this , right?

    Beside the above, that is viewers concerned about RID reputation because OcV LAD issue (RID refuse to compensated) and defective issue as claimed by some viewers as major discussed at here.

    As I had did some study for this Novus as below for supported my decision; I just want to share

    End Financier
    7 bank had provided end Financier to this development, mean this developer sure has healthy financial to able grabbed so many bankers supported.

    Logistics
    This no need I further explained at here, is strategy located at Sg Mining

    Selling Price
    I brought at RM580psf for high level and good view still in my opinion acceptable at the area

    New Strata Act
    This development sure under new Strata Act, by new schedule H, developer must delivered the Strata title before CCC

    New APDL Compliance
    Beside developer must obtained the SiFus approval, developer also need to deposit 3% cash of the developer cost into the HDA account ( huge money to open this account)

    SiFus
    Once SiFus approved, developer to follow the proposal and cannot simply make amendment on it (compare to old strata Act, SiFus come after completion )

    New Strata Management Act
    Developer to deposit 1% development cost to COB for the defective work, if developer no touch up the Commons area we have right to claim this money

    Pearl Ocean
    As Pearl Ocean leading by Mr HK Yeap (ex boss from RID), which is soul person from RID. Meaning he is not secondary management person from RID

    Future Developer Next To Novus
    Parcel 1, beside this Novus as Phase 1, Phase 2 by Pearl Ocean more low dense and the future price sure like rocket high. Parcel 2 also low density development by them. So my point of view, this Novus is their reputation and signature project, if Pearl Ocean failure Novus, other 2 will has very bad impact (so near to each other)

    Workmanship
    As I visited QcV and Medicine still can accepted the overall workmanship

    Separated Parking Tower
    This is attractive to me, because the surrounding compound for Novus more bigger

    Con
    Aircraft noisy

    @Knight

    For me this pricing still reasonable and I believed your unit is the 862sft type. Your entry must less 580K compare to unit I brought (1155sft) is more than 700K. So for future sub-sales marketability sure your unit is more favorable to public compare to my unit.

    For example If I just add 200K for my future sub-sales this unit already touching million……..compare your unit still in the region of 700K-780K (also make 200K profit). It is depend also for what the purpose you buy this Novus……..investment or own occupation.

    For me, strategy location with reasonable pricing is more favorable to my choice, compare to new development near by QB (Queen Residential above RM800psf) once is my consideration also before U decided buy Novus.

    I visited the show house as well. Novus furnishing is consider not high end but also not the low end as well. I believe is in the between high to middle class.

    According the pre-SPA specification, developer provided timber/laminated flooring for all bedroom (unfortunate not for living & dining). High ceiling, above 10ft and 4 air-conditional completed with piping and drain pipe (compare to other project still only given A/C point only without piping).

    For the balcony railing, I more concerned about the quality glass and aluminium frame for those window and the sliding door. If Pearl Ocean willing given the double glass for window, Aircraft noise will so not be an issue anymore.

    Just for sharing, for me frame-less glass railing at the open area/balcony/corridor although look fancy and nicer but I felt very unsecured compare to metal/steel railing.

    The LRT is part of the PTMP which has to start by reclamation of the 3 small islands in the south west of the island. The reclamation is facing heavy protest from the fishermen there as it threatens their livelihood. All in all expect it to be completed only in 15-20 years time and im sure Federal govt will likely delay this as we are DAP ruled. Public transport needs federal approval.

    @SAM (Buyer)

    Pearl Ocean submitted 2 layout plans via “Prisma Bumiraya Sdn Bhd” for their development surrounded the Kystal Point as below:-

    Parcel 1:- (For Lot 1619 & 1620)
    Phase 1A: 1 Block 34 storey building (273 units) and 10 strorey building as car park and facilities (This is refer to Novus)

    Phase 1B : 1 Block 44 storey building (96 units) and 3 storey car park ( super low density condo, maybe 2 units per floor………interesting)

    So, under parcel 1, their submitted total 369 units. Because they separate the development under 2 phases, therefore sure Novus and this future low density development had separated perimeter fencing due to difference MC in future.

    Parcel 2 :-(For Lot 542, 543 & 544)
    34 storey building (197 units), another low dense tower near to the round about.

    So total unit under this developer is 273(Novus) + 96 + 197 = 566 units……… (Melati flat objection figure is correct)

    This will under separate perimeter fencing as well because another MC.

    So, there is 3 individual building and MC, therefore sure had individual perimeter fencing to prevent tress-passing from outsider.

    In fact the Novus owned the bigger compound, because the developer build the difference tower for car park, therefore Novus has 2 towers compare to the future development by Pear Ocean at that area.
