ABOUT 400 home purchasers who bought houses in Taman Mengkibol, Kluang, can now heave a sigh of relief.
The housing project, which was left abandoned for 14 years, has been taken over by a new property developer.
However, to enable the new developer to revive the project, the house buyers will have to contact the Taman Mengkibol Action Committee immediately.
The committee chairman Ali Zainal Abidin S. Mohamad said the move by the new developer is a positive sign for the abandoned project.
Deputy Youth and Sports minister Senator Gan Ping Sieu, who is also Mengkibol state assemblyman, said at a Press conference recently that it is hoped all the house buyers will get in touch with the action committee without delay for the matter to be resolved.
Gan said the new developer will only be able to take over the project with the consent of the house buyers.
“I hope the agencies in the district will also help to ensure that the takeover will proceed smoothly, by allowing the new developer to follow the guidelines which had already been set prior to the development of the housing estate,” he added.
“If new guidelines were to be implemented now, this would hinder the development and make it more difficult for the house buyers, some of whom have been servicing their bank loan for 14 years,” he added.
