Factory owners get green light for sub-division of individual titles

The Subang Light Industrial Park Factory Owners Association has finally received the green light for the sub-division of individual titles from the Selangor government.

It has been a long struggle for the association which has obtained court orders since 2006 for the sub-division application after their developer failed to do so. While the master title had been properly converted from agricultural to light industrial, the developerhad not obtained the individual titles for the 106 factory owners.

Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh said the developer had also not paid up the quit rent since 2002, resulting in more than RM800,000 in outstanding amount, including penalty for late charges.

“Because of this, the owners were left in a lurch and had also been served with notices from the state government in April last year that their lands will be confiscated,” Yeoh said after meeting the association’s committee members at her service centre.

The factory owners at the industrial park in Jalan Subang 2, USJ 1 have businesses ranging from manufacturing and printing to car repairs.

Association president Richard Foo said so far, only 69 out of the 106 factory owners had responded to the call of the court order enabling them to apply for the sub-division on behalf of the developer.

“The remaining 37 have been reluctant despite letters sent out by our committee and banners to announce this. We have spent more than RM300,000 in surveying fees for the sub-division and court order,” Foo said.

Yeoh said she received a letter from the legal adviser on Jan 17 that only owners whose names were listed in the court order could proceed with the sub-division process.

She added that the association was now making a final appeal to the remaining 37 lot owners to contact the committee members for their names to be listed in the court order.

“Otherwise, they will be left out and may not be able to obtain their individual titles. It is unfortunate that the association has to do the job of a developer. In fact, they have invested much effort and time to come to this stage,” said Yeoh.

Foo said the committee was giving the 37 lot owners until Feb 12 to contact the assciation, after which they would proceed with the sub-division.

Association secretary Lee Man Seng said the committee now held the master title.

The 69 lot owners have paid up their share of about RM404,000 of the total outstanding quit rent arrears.

Foo said the association would also hold its annual general meeting on Feb 20 at the 98 Seafood Restaurant in USJ 8/2A at 3pm and urged all to turn up.

The committee members can be contacted at 012-618 9516 (Foo), 012-3310 273 (Lee) and 012-287 3163 (vice-president Wong).

The sin of Developer will be left as it is,,,the names of the shareholders of the developer will be like ghost, if found, they are just names which are of no values, not worth any respects, unfortunately, NOTHING much the victims could do despite they suffered after paid up their hard earned money to buy these properties.
Do advertise the names of these shareholders despite nothing much could be done, the crooks should be exposed, and legislation at state level should be reviewed for developers to be held liable if similar issue arises.
