    If we would to look back Penang property history, the average of property price is always at upward trend.

    What I can remember is prices of property escalating from 200+/sq ft to existing 500+/sq ft taking reference at Relau area in just 10 plus years.

    Those who keep waiting and hope for prices to go down might end up in deep regret and might not able to afford the higher price of property in near future.

    Well said. I was one of the stupid people who waited for property price to go down. Kept telling myself, supplied more than demand the price will definitely go down but in actual fact the price never go down and hike like crazy. Penang island is really really small. Land is limited.

    Those who missed the boat will be group into 2 groups.
    1st group of people will be the one who are not able to afford any more as the property price already hike out of their reach and without choice they force to turn to LMC, this group will be the most pity one.
    2nd group will be the one who are still able to manage but need to paid a much higher price compared to few years back still considered as lucky one though psychologically felt imbalance.
    So, today’s property always comparatively cheaper if you were to look back after few years later.
    But, after all it is still your choice.

    @Raining

    Like you have said, there is no sign of titanic going to sink before the actual sinking, then it is called faith. Nothing can be done to prevent it.

    Unless you are telling me you are seeing the same sign that current boat is going to sink like titanic, else you are just not talking about fact. Give some facts then only people will listen, or try to listen. Haha….

    Those that wanted to buy has already done so.
    Those that wanted other to buy citing missed boat and etc are obviously from the developer side. Do anyone really care if a complete strange in internet become poor because he missed the boat and living In cardbox? No one cares.
    So my point is if so confident this is sure win, why don’t go borrow money from ah long, sell your kidney or whatever to buy all the available units of Sky Vista since its a sure thing. Any taker?

    Visited the office. I think it is already selling more than Rm600psf d. Got 550psf?
    Most of the time some home buyer still buy from developer due to special packages, lower down payment. Sometime lack of cash is the reason Y not all can afford to buy resale.

    Heard sales reaching 40%.
    Most likely at time of officially launching, SPS will remove the 3% early bird discount.
    Current offer package for early bird is 5%+ 3%.
    Show room (1153 sqft) half way done, to be ready may be March.

    March 1st, 2015 at 12:20 | #34

    @ Ranee
    Still around R560 psf for lowest floor of the pool facing units.
    The earlier bird discount is still on which has been there since their soft launch. Appears to me that their current sale offer is not attractive enough to draw buyers interests.

    March 1st, 2015 at 13:49 | #35

    @Ranee
    Actually, what is the selling point for this project? I take a look at the location, and it seems that we need to passby a low of low-medium cost project to reach it. The problem with low-medium cost is that the carpark allocated for them is insufficient most of the time, that is why the road leading to Sky Vista narrowed from 2 lane to 1 lane because of illegal parking. And i dont think our state gov or the police dare to do anything.

  36. FreeThinker
    March 1st, 2015 at 15:44 | #36

    The future usage of the vacant land in front of setia vista is also still uncertain. It may end up with some unfavorable projects or buildings that may affect the future value of Sky Vista.
    Somemore, the maintenanace fee rate is high. Surpassing the rate of some of the supercondo in Pg. At RM0.35psf excluding sinking fund, monthly fixed expenses for the bigger unit will be already around RM500++ per mth. For sure, buying for collecting rental will be a big NO. Rental may not even sufficient to pay back the bank loan interest; set aside the monthly installment. For investment, who is your targeted buyers? There will be thousands of newly completed condos by then, not to menion affordable house. For own stay, the credibility of the new management of Setia is questionable? They are now a GLC company. Can they still deliver top class quality? Only time can tell.

    March 3rd, 2015 at 10:05 | #37

    @JC
    Frankly speaking Sky vista package is not so attractive compared to their previous project.

    Cons:
    Location wise(relau),
    High maintenance (0.35)
    Uncertainty of vacant land use in front of project
    Surrounding environment (many LMC)
    Traffic condition unknown after many surrounding projects completed
    Pros:
    Build quality(setia)
    Low density(460)
    Peaceful and quiet site location(near hill, front facing landed house)
    Better landscaping (by Japanese architect)
    Bigger land (6.15 acres) vs number of units
    Comparatively psf not too high (<rm560 if manage to get lower floor ) vs number of units
    2 free car parks even smaller unit (900 sqft)
    B

    Pls give your commends if any on above.

    Imagine if you have to put up with this traffic worry every day

    Trust me. When you move-in, only 2 things really
    concern you, unrestricted traffic any time /any day
    especially you have school going children with tuition ,etc.
    And , always a place to park your car

    Other things like breathtaking sea view/ hill view after some time

    you can renovate when and as you can afford. You can make it
    your unit a 5stars hotel standard .

    My sincere advice is drive in and drive out during morning rush hours and after office in the evening, for weekdays and weekends. Is it bearable?
    If you are frustrated now, probably you won’t be even keen to move-in after OC.

  45. FreeThinker
    March 3rd, 2015 at 23:11 | #45

    @Ranee
    I don’t know about you, the layouts of all units are unique and provide more privacy to its residences. eg. the scene inside the house will not be easily being seen by people@corridor; Main doors are not directly facing each other. For traffic, personally, I think all developed areas in Penang are more a less the same.

  46. Charlotte
    March 3rd, 2015 at 23:13 | #46

    Buying from Reputable developer is definitely Yes, so do I.
    But, use common sense and logic thinking to evaluate
    whether the price is reasonable in relative to the location?
    Don’t be naive. All developers will want to sell to you
    Highest possible price, as they are answerable to their shareholders

    The interior layout so far is one of the best I ever come across.
    Beside the few points you mentioned, all the rooms facing outside which will be brighter and more outside view.

    @Charlotte
    You had mentioned few bad comments on sky vista , the unbearable traffic jam and car park which may happen after completion of sky vista and also unreasonable price of sky vista.
    But these were the common things happens on any project in Penang nowadays.
    Anyway I respect your point of view as you had also spent some time on typing these.

    definitely oversupply in this area, for own stay is still ok, for investment definitely a NO-NO.

    no wonder after 3 months soft-launch (since December2014) still not manage to clean stocks. Good luck SP Setia…. LOL

    I just speak from my personal experience. I have already stayed in that area for few years. The traffic is bearable to me. Slightly heavy during rush hour in the morning and heavy traffic during Monday pasar malam day. Other time, traffic is smooth. I have neighbor who had sold his house in Tanjung Tokong area and moved to here because he can no longer bear the time he spent on the road daily. Going to and fro his workplace in Bayan Lepas daily.

  53. FreeThinker
    March 4th, 2015 at 20:01 | #53

    @Pino

    Agreed with you about the high price of Tanjung Tokong but surprisingly, certain units of the Tamarind project of E&O (Non sea view & low floor) in Tanjong Tokong are only priced at almost the similar pricing as Sky Vista. For investment, I think Tamarind will stand a bigger chance for investor to reap bigger bucks. They have much more selling points:-
    1. Good Location as most people in Pg perceive Tanjong Tokong is a classy area, furthermore this
    is Straits Quay.
    2. Reputable Developer
    3. Stone throw away from Tesco
    4. Next to future PORR
    5. Units are semi furnished with built in kitchen cabinets and air cond
    6. Possible to get expat tenant
    7. Low maintenance cost at RM 0.20 psf
    8. Reasonably priced
    Although it also has its downsides such as high density & possible insufficient car parks in future. Looking at the present sentiment and response, I guess the Pros outshine the Cons.

    But Sky Vista is just a project in Relau, a common working class residential area, not to mention foreign workers territory. Don’t u think this is also crazily expensive as well.

    Try to imagine if someone asks you where u are staying and u have the option to chose the following answers:-
    1. I am staying in Relau
    2. I am staying in Strait Quay

    Which one will you prefer?

  54. FreeThinker

  57. Starfcuks
    March 5th, 2015 at 10:05 | #57

    To me, this project is good for own stay. Lower density as compared to The Tamarind. Staying in Tanjung Tokong area is good but imagine you work in Bayan Lepas. You at least have to spend an hour plus on the road before it gets to your work place. The demand in Bayan Lepas is always there. Job opportunities in bayan lepas is in tandem with the house demand. I would say almost 40% of Penangites working in Bayan Lepas.

    I don’t think the Promotion will end as sales has not been encouraging.
    Actually, if you guys (Sky Vista) are first time house buyer, why not exercising your privilege of
    purchasing the I-Condo (Bayan Lepas) or other affordable housing project which is located in better location.

    It is a good thing if all the potential buyers are mainly for own stay. At least it will not be turned into worker quarters. Owners should be happy also if maintenance Fee is high. At least the management will have enough fund to maintain the condo, provided every one is paying the fee.

  63. Ranee
    March 5th, 2015 at 21:33 | #63

    Base on the facts of DIBS being removed and new rules on bank loan, believe most of the potential purchasers are for own stay and I assuming this is one of key factors why Sky Vista sales slow down compare to its previous projects.
    For those could be investor I thought they are busy now at Tamarind as its more attractive.

    Bro, those people with brain would not choose this area for investment. Most of the purchasers here are buying for own stay. Those investor wanna bes or investor are so busy with The Tamarind. You can see the sales trend of Sky Vista, clearly most of it are for own stay which is really a good sign. At least you wont see a nice condo with 10-20% occupancy rate like it happened most of the newly built condo in Penang. Get it?

    Agreed with u Penang properties in established area will always got its value. If one goes to compare the price of double storey terrace in Setia Vista vs tripple storey terrace in Setia Pearl Island advertised in Mudah, the price different is not much. In fact, RM psf in Setia Vista is slightly higher.

    Relau area also can be invested. But may be more applicable to landed property.
    In year 2010 I bought DnP Sentral Green triple storey terrace for 8xxk with extra land.
    Now sales price as advertised in Mudah ~1.3M on standard unit.
    At that time, my whole family against it and saying so many foreigners living at that area. Now they diam diam.

    The question is, you mean Batu Maung 7 years ago is more high class than 2019 Relau? When an area is already established, you won’t make much money in terms of investment as the price is also at a higher range. As for investment, always buy things that other do not dare to, take calculated risk. I believe SP Setia will not dissapoint the buyer, hence i have decided to go ahead and buy one .

    My booking unit at 9th floor, 1153 sqft.
    Setia said promotion most likely ends 2 weeks after official launch(28 Feb) and SnP signing end of Mar.
    You may take a look the show house beside the sales gallery.

    At least, the potential of capital appreciation is higher with
    the current new road expansion/flyover at Teluk Kumbar.
    Relau, no one can visualise how bad the traffic jam would be
    and with all other bad points, really not much positive outlook

    The irony is this developer also had a gated and guarded
    Double Storey/SemiD with clubhouse project planned in
    Balik Pulau, just don’t know when to launch.
    That one if pricing is ok, then really worth the risk.
    That one considered a real calculated risk.

    Just to share, my parents bought 3 semi-D in Pantai Jerjak Sungai Nibong almost 30 years ago, and most of our relatives at that time stays in Georgetown and Air Itam area laugh at my parents for buying houses at such an Ulu location. 30 years later, who is laughing now?

    Charlotte is spot-on in her rational point to point reasoning.
    What aspect in Relau warrants your investment acumen for a possible future appreciation? Location is definitely out, pricing is neither a selling point too-in fact is it overly priced at today’s market climate/availability of affordable housing (I-condo, etc). Traffic, will only get worse…So, you tell me? Please…

    I also stayed in Pantai Jerjak area (BSG semi D).
    Over there, the semi-D were spread around quite big area and did not have any specific so called semi-D area.
    For staying more than 7 yrs there I could not tell any owner got own more than 1 semi-D, I don’t know how you can tell? Do you pay visit to every semi-d house?

    Come back to Relau location.
    Do you know Setia Vista 2 storey terrace house, now the average price ~ 1.1M to 1.2M compare to launching time at 2009 only merely <600k.
    The figure itself tells the truth and it beaten the so called expert point of view.

    By the way, I owned another 3 storey terrace house also at Relau, The Sentral Green.

    Nobody know what would happen after 10 years. If you are to critize Setia on this project at such location. What about Ecoworld and Sunway investing in Paya Terubong? So called the place for the poor. Penang is just a small island, this beautiful island has got its value. As long as its in the island, the value appreciation is always there just the matter of time. If you talk about traffic, tell me where is the place in Penang without traffic issues?

    Ranee,
    You, yourself acknowledged that a 2 storey terrace house was formerly priced at RM600K.
    What made Relau’s Condo now to worth more than RM600K now? And you guys still buying. Traffic improvement? No but getting worse, and no one knows when will be the worst.
    Another shopping malls nearby? New schools? All No.
    Instead, there are more flats & more foreigners. The window of opportunity for investment in Relau is closed.

    I don’t have a crystal ball to foresee what lies ahead in 10 years. Neither am I interested things that are too far ahead. I am just mindful of the present facts. Relau 1 way accessibility and traffic conditions are there in front of our eyes NOW to assess. Any new road expansion or flyover ? No. So, You tell me. It is a fact that traffic condition will and can only get worse. This is a reality that you guys conveniently ignore, hoping for this problem will solve by itself later.
    So, you expect me to wish you ” Get keys and to live happily ever after ” ?

  91. Stella

    I did not and will never criticize any developer. I argue based on hard facts.
    You mention a developer in Paya Terubung, well, that is a good one. I was given 2 VIP cards for its concert in PISA. The developer is assessing the market well, accepting the shortcomings of that location. That’s way a landed has been scaled down to Condo Project with generous space and landscaping.

  92. Stella
    March 7th, 2015 at 21:22 | #92

    Stafcuks,
    You put into me every where is Penang Island will have traffic jam and that’s true.
    But, at the same time, You should note that the distance from each area to working places like FTZ Factories, schools, amenities like shopping malls are making the difference. For example, no matter how serious the traffic jam, travel time between Bayan Baru/Sungai Nibong and FTZ will not exceed 30 minutes. Can you say the same for Relau?

  93. funan
    March 7th, 2015 at 22:08 | #93

    @Starfcuks

    Actually for Ecoworld’s case, the person who made the decision to buy that piece of land got f&cked big time by the boss. They have finally realized the difficulty of selling properties in that location (expensive properties for this case), that they had to keep revising their project, from landed G&G –> landed + low rise combi –> high rise –> highrise + big garden combi etc. After so many “tua kong” road shows and all, still cannot sell. And now, their only consolation is “Sunway also buy land right across the road, so it must not be that bad, right?”

    @Charlotte

    Balik Pulau? I am sure you are aware of how many lives have been lost going up and down that hilly road to BP, if you had read the headlines of TheStar newspaper yesterday. Why risk your life? And for what? If you have budget restrictions, Batu Kawan has 100 times more potential than BP. IF you have loads of money, prime property in Tanjung-Gurney area is as good as gold. You only have 1 life, but there are many better investment options. Please choose wisely.

    @JC

    Well, whether it is true or not that your parents bought 3 semidees in Sungai Nibong, I guess that’s of no importance. But the fact is, whoever bought homes in that area would have made at least 10 times more by now. BUT, so had anyone else who bought homes in Penang island in any area (except maybe Balik Pulau). So that makes the 10 times equals to nothing. In order to have a NETT profit, you’d have to OUTPERFORM the rest.

  94. JC
    March 7th, 2015 at 23:05 | #94

    @funan
    10 times? Its more like 15x from the initial price my parents bought. Tell me which house in Air Itam that appreciate 15x ? The fact is that, majority of you here only know how to buy when the location is well develop. For example, you mention Bau Kawan, if you enter now, you are a late comer already, so why bother? Thats not wise if you are a real investor. Real investor is those that already sapu the land and house in Batu Kawan 15-20 years ago.

    Travel to Ayer Itam, Lip Sin, Perkaka, Green Lane, Bayan Baru, Komtar more nearer than those property in Sg. Ara such like Setia Triangle, Reflection, The Clovers, One Residence, Fierra Vista etc. Nak cari makan pun senang saja, nak pergi pasar pun dekat dan banyak choice

    And now top the list is Batu Maung (from 2nd bridge)towards QBM, every evening it took me at least 1 hours to reach my home in Pantai Jerjak. The flyover will take years to completed.

Also, Relau is the center link of Air Itam, Balik Pulau and also the FTZ area which i can say is one of elite location in PNG. Surrounding is wil all the facilities required for daily life just a short distance such as School, Market, Complex, Factory, Hawker Center, Hospital, Inti College, Bukit Jambul Hill… etc…

    I thought Tropicana Bay Residence launched since 2013 or early in 2014? No? Hmmmm I think many people will always prefer a Sea view condo. Like The Tamarind, sold out within a week. Really good buy. Tanjung Bunga/Tokong always the prefer location for most penangites.

    just a matter of ‘feeling premium’, and developer will add seaview-premium to those units. Seaview premium normally cost additional 30k, 50k or some even 100-200k (if you know one HOT project lately).

    I did asked the sales people, the answer given was that since Sky Vista will take 4 years to build, by the time it completes, most of other older projects will start to increase their fees taking the factor of GST also.
    In general, developer will only take charge of maintenance 2~3 years, after that will pass over to house committee to look for property manager for maintenance. Hopefully by then the price will adjust to a more reasonable level, at least on par with the then current market.
    By the way, facility in Sky Vista is much better compare to Reflection in my own opinion.
    I also at the stage of hesitation though I got a cheaper and good unit, need to do a hard decision before April.

    Setia quality and customer care attitude have gone from good to bad since the change in management. Defects rectification of a new unit takes 3 yrs and still not completed. Once you file a defect, the contractors take 1 year to work on it. When we called, the answer is always standard: “Let me check with my contractor and get back to you!”. Until now, our renovation work is at a halt waiting for them to rectify their defects which seem to take forever. Just sharing my personal experience dealing with Setia.

    @Starfcuks
    Very high chance I will drop the Sky Vista.
    Reason due to high maintenance fee + sinking fund which will total up to rm 0.385 psf.
    What a pity……
    If you are for own stay, may worth to consider if affordable.
    Next Setia project Sky 8 at SPI club house site, inside source saying >700 psf, will be expecting to launch next year after Sky Vista.
    Good luck to you.

    I had surrendered my Sky Vista unit and awaiting for full refund.
    Instead registered on Setia Solok Slim at Jelutong (near Heng Ee).
    Expected to launch year end and consists of 2 phases, phase 1 will be 2 block of condo and phase 2 will be more price friendly comparable to affordable home.
    It seems more attractive.

    Setia cut corners nowadays. Upon receive the unit, we see many defects. The 3yrs warranty is almost up. But the defects are still there since the day we collected our keys. Problem is if we start renovation, Setia will claim that the warranty is void. If we do not renovate before GST, we are charged with >6% increase in renovation cost. Throughout the past 3 yrs, dealing with Setia has been nothing but frustration. If we pay our own contractors to fix it, the cost incurred can be quite hefty coz these are not minor defects: cracked bathtub, peeled taps and rusty bath fixture, discolored wooden floor, very low water pressure, cracked tiles, cracked walls, bathroom leak. Every time we filed a list of defects, some of it get fixed after 6 mths but a lot didn’t. And we have to filed the same defects again hoping that it will be fixed properly. That takes another 6 months. That is Setia tactics to delay serving the warranty. Another few months left now, but we’re still left with a list of defects that Setia hasn’t fixed. The past 3 yrs was like living in hell to us! We have lost our confidence in Setia. Never will we buy another Setia project.

    Personally, i experienced that the customer service delivers by Ideal property for maintenance support is good, i stay in One Residence, their quality of service so far so god, every time i filled a complain for defect, it alaeys delivered according to SLA, sometimes, it might be a bit delay but it always get resolved according to request which is reasonable.

    I have to agree with u on this. I am facing the same problem also when dealing with their service department. They will only help u to rectify minor defects. For major defects such as leakages, they will only do some touch up on surface. Problem resurface after sometime. After 3 years, they havs yet to rectify my defects satisfactorily.

    March 30th, 2015 at 23:16 | #146

    We bought the final phase of SPI… the top management changed hands in the middle of the construction and so did the contractors. Since then, Setia’s quality drops. And the attitude changed. Problem with their customer service is “they don’t care”! I even filed complaints to their headquarters in KL. Still nothing changed, no improvement, nothing seems to be able to motivate them to work on our defects properly or take us seriously. So, if Setia (as a reputable company) is treating their current buyers in such manner, what can you expect for the future buyers?

  147. Ops
    March 31st, 2015 at 23:39 | #147

    After we filed the defects, we check our unit every week. But Setia did nothing for 5 mths. We keep bugging them “politely”. Not until we scold them did we see some progress. And that wasn’t fixing the defects yet. Setia only sent their site management to check on our units, explaining that they need to postpone the fix due to goodness knows how many festive celebration and public holidays we have in Msia! Raya..Xmas..CNY..Agong Birthday..Thaipusam..Labor Day..! And the wait continues until finally Setia told us that the defects were rectified. They did something but left some untouched or ignored. So, we filed another complaint. And the cycle repeats. It has become our routine to call up Setia Customer Care every few weeks. Frustrating? But we are also totally helpless against Setia unless we want to fork out the money to replace the bathtub or fix that leak or change all the taps in the bathroom which are peeling and popping. But our money is tied to the heavy monthly mortgage… where to find extra money to fix the defects which shouldn’t exist in the first place. Don’t Setia have a Quality department?

  148. FreeThinker
    April 1st, 2015 at 17:42 | #148

    For my case, I noted that they were unable to instruct the contractor to rectify the defect as per the correct method. They just followed or allowed the contractor to rectify the defects as per what the contractor way which was cheaper and faster of course but a temporary solution. This will repeat over many times until the defect period was over and free from their obligation. I wonder whether their engineer/supervisor was don’t know or they were already being settled by their contractor. Setia project is normally priced at a premium price if compared to other projects at the same vicinity. eg Sky vista price is a lot more higher if compared to Skycube, imperial residences etc. It shouldnt happens to a reputable developer who used to claim that their house will be zero defect. No wonder their new project sale is so slow. I guess these must be happening to a lot of buyers.

  149. Ops
    April 1st, 2015 at 23:24 | #149

    The main reason who chose to buy from Setia instead of other developers was due to their excellent hassle-free after sale customer care. At that time, we didn’t mind paying a little more so that we could rest assured that Setia would take care of the defects promptly. That really did happen to SPI Phase 1 and Phase 2 owners. Defects were rectified within days. The site supervisor even walked through with you to ensure that you’re satisfied. My friends highly recommended Setia to us and showed us how happy they were with Setia Care. Now? I wouldn’t dare to recommend Setia to anyone lest they would have to go through what we do now and blame me for their predicament. I am only one out of over thousands of buyers suffering from Setia’s indifference. Imagine everyone starts sharing their ill-treatment to friends, relatives, and coworkers. Of course, Setia’s reputation is tarnished already.

    Setia Sky Vista still worth to buy for investment or own stay:-
    1). Build quality – Setia still keeping their reputation even change boss. Setia won’t disappointed their customer.
    2). Developer – Visit to few property office including SP Setia, Ideal, BSG, GSD Land, Mah Sing. My impression is Setia still keeping a very good service as compare to other.
    3). Density – Low density (460) with bigger landscape (6.15 acres).
    4). Car park – 2 car parks for small units (9xx sqft). 3 car parks for (14xx sqft).
    5). Location – peaceful and quiet location near hill. Front view with sky vista landed property.
    6). Area – Relau. Although a lot of people concern about the traffic jam and foreigner worker. But i have different thought here. The main load at Relau area have been Widen. Another alternative route is to use bukit jambul exit. Foreigner worker problem expected to be resolved as Penang Goverment in a plan to move all foreigner worker to Juru Worker Village.

    Few of my friends bought from the setia road show. I’m still considering. High posibility will buy a unit for own stay before the early bird offer end after the road show.

    I am quite happy with SP Setia the professional way of handling the refund of booking fees though the sales of Sky Vista is slow.
    For the cancellation of their project, just need to fill in the cancellation form stated with one reason and just it. No bank loan rejection letter required as most developers practice today.
    The full refund check is ready within 18 days from the day cancellation made.
    It ready shows the way of culture how a reputable company should present and sideline others.

    I dont get it why people keep criticizing SP Setia or this project. If you dont like it, DONT buy it. Setia is not pointing a gun and forcing you to buy their project. Go ahead and buy whatever project from EcoWorld or any project that launched in Tanjung Tokong/Bunga. Regarding the defects frustration that some of you guys have faced. Curiously, I thought SPA have stated clearly that whatever defects that you have found upon receiving your keys, the developer has to rectify it within 30 days or something? Otherwise, Legal action shall be taken against the developer and they will have to pay a penalty or something? Correct me if im wrong, just out of my curiosity.

    @Starfcuks
    In Msia, consumer rights is very weak. Even in forums like this, you can feel that developers get more supporters than the suffering buyers. So, unless you want to make big headlines in the newspaper or complain to politicians asking them to step in on your behalf or bring the developer to court, I think 99.9% homebuyers are begging for the developers’ mercy despite the statement in most SnP says that developer must rectify defects within 14-30 days notification. If you have the spare cash to hire a lawyer to fight with developers, you might as well use that money to fix those defects and renovate your house. The property law also says that you can hire your own contractors to fix the defects after the stipulated date on your SnP, send the billing receipt and request the developer to fund your cost of repair. But, developers are good at dealing with such cases. They can find a million reasons to deny your claims. They can even tell you that those defects are your faults, nothing to do with them! You can’t really out-smart developers!

    You’re right! The same leakage beneath the bathroom resurfaced! Setia’s last fix is just temporary. They didn’t even bother to add silicon to insulate the floors. They just tightened the same cap again. But, I thought they tightened that last time. Any way, Setia considered the defects fixed. And I’m just as dumbfounded as you.

If this is the price, maybe my family consider to buy since it is cheaper around 100k. Furthermore, the affordable house built by BSG also around 400k (smaller size, commercial shops below, density). It is a house good to stay but not investment.
