I tried to email to the developer but they seem ignore my email. Besides, I called up the Senior Marketing Manager of PLB however his explanation to me is all rubbish, kept trying to twist and turn around without providing a FIRM answer. Many issues have been raised by me: swimming pool is not operating yet?covered car park is without shed?developer is misleading us on the additional 200 sq ft..and the strata title issue(should be granted at a minimum of 1 and half year). The manager of PLB even told me that WE CAN DO WATEVER WE WANT TOO..as they cannot commit anything in black and white at this moment..I will attend this coming meeting, anyone able to send me the map?

Dear all resident & owner Selina Bay ,
About the issue of the meeting:
1) ragrading the facility that in our S&P and we still do not geting it until now , don't pay the "Maintenance Fees " until we get all those facilities ready .

2) regrading the extra 200sf that the developer promise us after we get the OC we can extend it ,but still until now we can do nothing.

3) 1ST MEETING ISSUE :about the indoor contractor ,we have the right to hire our own contractor to renovate our house ,we NO NEED to us this indoor contractor ( who are charging so expensive, more then triple of the market value ).A gruop of the resident already make a police report,if the indoor contractor come "kacau" just report to the police .Last week there was some action have been taken by the police .So , please inform all your friends or neighbor don't hire the indoor contractor start from now .

Please inform all your friends and neighbor try your best to attent this meeting . TQ

 
May 7, 2008 at 10:41 PMAnonymous

I would suggest that you print out a meeting memo in A5 paper size and put into all letter boxes. This is to ensure more people know the meeting schedule and attend the meeting as most of owner may not access this blogger. Furthermore, those onwer will get to know the truth fact even they don't attend the meeting. If all owner boycott the appointed contractor, then the developer may take some action or the contractor reduce the price to more reasonable price to get business.

May 27, 2008 at 1:32 AMAnonymous

at last i found somewhere where i can share with :( i make several complaints with the maintenance but they just keep beating around the bush. i ask about the gym they said later.

i ask about tennis court net. they said will ask the kasporat guy. then i ask why they put up the small lighting on the ground instead of pole lighting, and they send me the contractor guy. the contractor guy said they cant do anything because they just follow plan. for your information the same goes to the basket ball court too.

its true what the ppl said about the in-house renovator. its damn expensive. even aircond also (pao) want it. just only labour normally its rm300 but they charge rm580. everything is expensive there. even for the tiles, its should be 2 X 2 instead of 16 inch. we being cheated for the flooring tiles.

when i go to PLB office in beach street they give me funny excuses and i did call the guy from PLB office asking why is the insurance being insured for only rm55millions??? they cant give me a good reason instead they just give u funny answers.dear brothers and sisters if i calculate by the cheapest rate which rm 125,000 X 754 unit (not including the shophouses) its should be = rm 94,250,000. correct me if im wrong look into the insurance stuff which u get it from the PLB office. i did ask the PLB lady who came to Serina Bay she said she dont know.

if we make it market price at rm 170,000 X 754 = rm 128,180,000. man, our houses is under insured more than 100% its far behind.

and since febuary the maintenace guy MR Ismail keep on telling me the strata title stuffs will be obtain in these 2 months for the extensions and where is it??? its being nearly 4 months now? keep on tell us he will help. one thing on this Ismail, he have no respect for the residents. when ever the owner ask he will talk without looking at u, sometimes he will talk backing u.

and the car parks, have u guys see your carparks? i believe the turning part will be the most difficult even for professional drivers. its too narrow, how could they do it that day? i know something is wrong once i saw the turning part.

even for 1st floor where it suppose to be recreational area, its all only with cements. come on its just like rushing works. its should be at least being tiles up the whole area. its not low cost apartment. we pay with our hard earned money, honestly we should fight for it. and im in.

please let me know when the next venue for gathering or complaints please. all owners please attend as well. fight for your hard earned money.

Apply to convert to freehold status, CM tells landowners
Residential leasehold landowners in Penang can begin applying to the state government to convert the government land into freehold, said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

He said the state was studying a new land policy, which would allow the 30-year, 60-year or 99-year leasehold land be converted into freehold land on a case-by-case basis.

Are you sure the aircond the in-house contractor charged you RM580?I did the aircond installation with them, they charge RM180 for aircond point, concrete wall and rm120 for non-concrete. For aircond installation, RM200 each, which I found it cheaper compared asked outside which charged RM300.

2 days ago i received a mail from the management regarding payment for maintenance fee for may and june. but here i wanna stress that the only facility can be use is swimming pool. there is tennis court but without net and the lighting for the tennis court and basketball court is inappopriate. i didnt get to see the gym and sauna. so why are we(residents) paying for maintenance without the full facility and some which not operational yet??? should we hold the payment first?

MCs vs Parcel Proprietors....

"mandatory" is to be balanced with Rights & Obligations!!

I SURELY SALUTE YOUR “Pay first and dispute later" attitude. According to such an attitude,

A. No one should question PTG on the delay of Strata Title even knowing that Quit Rent is supposed to be based on the Strata Title. Your obligation to pay Quit Rent to PTG officially only started when your name is on the Title!!

B. Similarly, you are not the legal proprietor of "your" properties until the Strata Title were "registered" or "transferred"), therefore, why should MP be charging you the Assessment before the registration or transferred?

C. STA only concerned MC and the "registered" proprietors. Therefore, if MC is there but buyers not "registered", the Developer should be the "proprietors" liable to pay the Management Fee.

Exclusive : more expose on developers and their thugs!
4 June 2007 - 8:38pm
Ed: Our housing campaign is gaining momentum : we are publishing a letter from a reader who offer a few good overall pictures on the developer-with names named, and a few good tips on how to fight the developers' contractors. The only condition for the piece is : keep the author anonymous. OK-deal. Here is the article :

hi
actually i have been facing this problems for the past 12 yrs. No action
been taken. I can even list down the name of the contracor company that
involved. Let me tell you, the new I-avenue also will face the same
problems. And the company that involve will be Idea Paulse. They are even
worst. Followed by the belleview project at Perak Road. Another 1 will be at
Mount Eskine, which is under Developer Ujung Pelangi and i expect the
company involve will be Hillside renovation contractor. We have been bullied
for the pass 10yrs. The projects that effected- Desa Airmas(sg dua),
I-Avenue shoplot, Symphony Park at Jelutong.

One thing that i have to tell ur all is, the notice board is belong to all resident of Serina Bay as we pay for the Management to service us. They don't have a right to take off the notice of committe from the notice board. May be we have to ask for permission as a respect to them. Put it on the notice is legal to all resident of Serina Bay. So "THEY CAN'T" take off the notice . If they simply take it out, so that mean Management is our "BOSS", as we have to listen to them. NO! NO! NO! If they doing so, i wil go to tell them as well and sent the notice to each house letter box. If anyone just keep complain like someone here, why not u just join us and speak up for ur property. This not just my problem as it also is ur problem as well. Our next meeting will be on 15 JUNE 2008,(SUNDAY) 4PM at swimming pool area. We hope u can attend the gathering with us.

Now the indoor contractor(thugs) also make a police report.Do you belive that ? A robber make a police report that said same one rob them ! What are this world doing today ? Even the police accept the robber make a report ........very funny .....

Dear Resident of Serinna Bay,

The best way to deal this problem is to meet Y.B personnally at his office in KOMTAR and discuss with him this issues. If he agrees with our plight we should then arrange a meeting which will be attended by the resident, Y.B, and the developer. I can also arrange reporters to be present if the need arrised. If this is agreeble please do e-mail me at zedene@hotmail.com. My name is Zul and i'am one of the buyer of 1 unit at B block. I'am well versed with government procedures since i'am a government servant. Anyway, do let me know about your feedbacks on this.

Thank you.

Dear all Serina Bay residents,

THIS IS A LETTER BY OUR LAWYER FIRM (MALKIT SINGH RANDHAWA BAIDURA & CO.)

LAWYER IN CHANGE:
MR. Malkit Singh S/O Dalip Singh

Our Ref:
MSR.LIT.1380.08

Date:
05 June 2008

CONTAINS OF LETTER IS ABOUT:-

RE: Serina Bay Apartments Erected on Land Known AsH.S(D) 13599, PT 90, Section 9E, Georgetown, North East District, Penang.


We act for Mr. Tan Kean Phaw and seventy four othersresidents and owners of units in the aforesaid project.

Our clients have instructed us to write to you as follows:-

Despite the Certificate of Fitness being already issued and our clients having occupied their units, a number
of facilities have still not been provided and this is in breach of the terms of the Sale & Purchase Agreement.

The facilities not yet provided are the sauna room, the gym room, a changing room for swimming pool use,
gazebo, games room and facilities not fully provided are incomplete landscaping, and insufficients covered
car parks.

Our clients also instruct that construction material and debris have been left by side of fence in the car-park
and the Block A and B entrance are partially blocked by cement bags. This constitutes a total eye-sore to
the residents and their visitors and poses a safety risk as well.

Our clients futher instruct that the car park roof and down pipe are leaking and water has begun to
accumulate near the side walls of the car park and there are signs of cracking walls.

The swimming pool is not being attended to and cleaned regularly resulting in flotsam and moss which can
constitute a health risk to our clients.

Our clients others grievances are that you are only allowing your own choice of contractors to conduct
renovation work for the residents and the residents are not allowed to choose their own contractors. Your
contractors are changing much higher rates. Kindly cease this practice immediately failing which our clients
will lodge complaints including to the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Ministry of Housing and Local
Government as you are in no position to monopolise the choice of our clients contractors.

Our clients also inform us that they are being asked to pay between RM300.00 to RM2,000.00 non
refundable deposits before their renovation works can begin. Can you please confirm this as it is strange to
request non-refundable deposits.

Our clients others major complaint isthat they were given representations by you and futher confirmed by the
layout in your showroom unit that they were entitled to extend their units by a futher 200sq.ft but they are
now made to understand that they cannot do so. Your clarification on this issue will be appreciated.

Our clients also wish a joint management body to be set up as soon as possible to have all their grievances
and complaints addressed. Please let us know whther you can arrange an initial meeting. Our clients are
open to an amicable resolution to their problems.

as such please kindly institute appropriate measures to address and remedy our clients grievances and
complaints with fourteen(14) days here of failing which our clients will suspent all payment of service changes
upon expiry of the said period and institute relevant legal proceedings including compelling you to provide for
the agreed facilities without any futhers reference to you in which event our clients will hold you liable in costs.

Thank You.



Your faithfully,

I am an owner of One Unit Of Serina Bay and somehow i didnt manage to move into the new house yet ,waiting for the investigation to be conducted and to renovate the 200 sq.Feet.

My current house is sellnig away at 25th July . And we need 3 rooms to content our family . I we cant move in if the renovation isnt done yet for the renovation will probably bring a lot of noise and distures to my family .

I have been chased after the management since 2 mtnhs ago , subjecting them about this matter and somehow the management told me to contact the developer .

and when i contact the developer , the developer ask me to contact the surveyor . And guess what answer i get from the surveyor ?

The surveyor told me , Our management is owing them 10k + carpark accesories and the investigator ask them to pay 1st before they come to investigate and when i call back to the management , they told me , they have been chasing after the boss to pay and sign the cheque since 2 mnths ago but their boss not yet sign .

What kind of prob is that ? ANd tell me where should i move to my this end of mnth ? Can u guys pls think for us and put on our shoe ?
We made full payment to you but yet u keep dragging our renovatino proccess .
I believe i am not the only victims as i can see there's a LOT OF PPL WRITTING IN THE ELAVATOR 'S WALL THAT THEY MEET SUCH A PROB AS WELL.

Explain to me and can u think of a solution for us ?
I need a house to live in bu thios end of July!

Let's take action by using legal method, and change the whole management ! If needed, let's get Menteri's authority to make exception for change of this slow and unresponsive management. BTW, we can jointly sue the developer for making a false and misleading advertisement in the first place. Don't you all agree? Please reveal management, developer, and surveyor phone number, we must put their pants on fire !! - fed up

July 18, 2008 at 12:42 AMAnonymous

im heard that there was thieve inside the Serina Bay apartment couples days ago. A few apartment units were victims....This news was published in the local chinese newspapaer as well.

If this is true, then we the apartment resident shall be more alert and take care of each other closely. Precaution action shall be immediate taken in-case observe any abnomaly in our surrounding.....such as request assistant n etc......but just wonder, how this thing can happen since every blocks building have security guard stays in front of main entarnce door?

and somemore those who has assess card only are allowed to walk through the entrance....something very wrong was happended!!!

im regret to know this case if it's a valid issue.....n of course we r going to lose confident to the Management team of Serina Bay.....too bad!!!

 
July 18, 2008 at 9:34 AMMeng

I think this was a conspire from the "Managment" and the "Indoor Contractor ", if there was thieve inside the Serina Bay apartment then they have a excuse to blame the "outside contractor".At last they won't allow our "own contractor" to do the renovation.As your information the "Indoor Contractor " worker are stay in our apartment ,they said they was rent the house from the ownner .So ,what will those worker do during mid night ? No body know .....!We all the resident should dismiss the previous "Managment Team" and "Indoor Contractor " !Change a new "Managment Team" ,hier our own contractor for our own home !

 
July 18, 2008 at 11:10 AMAnonymous

What is that the so called "Security Access card"?Don't you agree that this is just a way for the management to get additional money from the residents?I've checked with the management team and according to them, it's NON-REFUNDABLE for cash in case no longer needed. Telling me that going to reconfirm with the management team if it's refundable and I never get the feedback from her either. What is the reason of having this access card when people are still able to walk in freely with the loudsy management there?I see guard sleeping...see guard blocking the way for the resident due to forgetting to take the access card down as he's just going to the car park to take something..just blocking the way of residents but not the thieves!How funny!Change the management!Change the stupid system!

 
July 18, 2008 at 1:10 PMAnonymous

The 200sqt untill now still no news for us ,waiting for nothing really angry and can't do anything
why we are the victim ,poor management ,all are loose control !who can help ?????get lose .....

 
July 18, 2008 at 6:47 PMAnonymous

04 - 3900799 PLB , the developer
04-2268905 The surveyor

We need to wait for the developer to pay the surveyor than only the surveyor will ask KL ppl to come over to investigate .

200ft is Urgent needed . My house is sellnig away on 25th July .

I am very disappointed to some of the resident in Serina Bay , the commitee was try their best to disband the indoor contractor(robber)but there are still some of those resident was hiring them ! fear to get trouble!especially the chinese resident.All the commitee effort was just wasted if we still hiering those "robber".What kind of rules that we cannot hire own contractor to renovate our own home ? Why we must pay more to then who was doing nothing and just taking our money ? Is not easy for us to own a house/home,we have to pay back over 30years for the bank loan.Then those "robber" are stil planing to "rob" us,just for their own riches!
SO, DEAR ALL OUR FRIENDS AND RESIDENT PLS DON'T HIRE THOSE "ROBBER" START FROM NOW ......DON'T ENCOURAGE THEM ,IF YOU ARE RICH TO PAY YOUR MONEY TO THEM ,PLS DONATE THOSE MONEY TO CHARITY.THIS IS BETTER CAN HELP MORE PEOPLE.

 
July 22, 2008 at 9:34 PMLawrence

Dear Meng,
From my knowledge, those robbers contractors practise happens at all new private residential buildings in Penang. I can say that most of them are tied up with the local gangsters and your hse now used to be their teritorry. They would harass chinese residents or maybe u can wait till 2-3years when they leave then only you can renovate w/o inteference. unless u're a malay or related to the IGP or Umno.Best still, maybe your boss is bigger than their boss. Then maybe you don't have to pay. However, some big projects from reputable contractors don't have this issue. Why? cos its already been absorbed to the building cost.
Anyway, you cant blame certain ppl here to get their work, as most of us needs a place to move in. And of cuz, we want a peace of mind that our home are safe while we're not around. Can you guarantee our safety? Why do we have to quarrel with them, whereas we've purchased our home there and wld be occupying. who knows? the might not revenge now, but wait till 6 months or 2 years latter then only find fault with you?.
But however, from my info, the contractors from Serina Bay are not gangsters. The management can't do anything as those contractors had purchased 2 units at RM500k with the clause that they are the only contractors allowed to work there. So, whose fault is that? The contractors or the developer? If the developer can refund the 500k, then i dont think this things would happen.

 
July 24, 2008 at 8:56 AMmeng

As i said i was very disappointed to some of the chinese resident in Serina Bay,"kia si".I just pay money you don't kacau me,other people i don't boder that's their bussiness! Why said that "the malay or related to the IGP or Umno don't have this problem" ? because their boss was bigger ? or because they are more rally then the chinese .Just for a example , the commitee of SB ,just a few of chinese guy , why ? because some ppl just talk much ,many idea when ask them to joint the commitee they said cannot,no timebla...bla...bla...."kia si" .When went you ask they Malay or India guys then will joint with out talking much ! That's our chinese attitude !
If we know that the indoor was not "Gangster" so what are you thinking for ? Still support them ?We the resident din't hire any indoor contractor ,we din't allowed them to work in our home ...
Dear stp Lawrence,i am chinese too,that's why i say all that...

 
July 24, 2008 at 12:56 PMshawn

I feel that some of the chinese resident at Serina Bay is really "Kia Si" like Lawrence. During committe meeting, everyone is agree not using the indoor contractor as we being told. but just because they afraid to get problem from the "Authorised Licence Robber" so they continue to use them. What the hell is this!!! I also dint ask the indoor contractor to do the renovation for my unit. I dont care whether they are gangster or anyone, at here i just remind them if u dare to do anything, may be somebody is wacthing u at the back "NOW". Please behave urself as well as the "Famous Malay Contractor" which his name is around Serina Bay. I also hope to join the committe , but i think i have been leave out by Mr. WahaX or Mr. K.P. Xan already. So please let me know how the latest & the JMB info. i always support and agree to Mr Meng at here. Well done friend!

I'm not a Serina Bays owner, but Mr Lawrance i want to let you know that even if you pay to that ' gangster ' they also can't ensure your safety. I read news last few day, half page is about the security problem in Serina bays. A lot of break in happen in your house. Do you thing those ' gangster ' can help you on this or the committee and police?
By the way who is UMXO in Penang here?? I only know Mr Guan Eng.

Dear Owners

I am also an owner to one unit of Serina Bay. I believe that this priviledge for comments in this website should be fully utilised to market our properties. Not to spoil the value of our properties. May i suggest that official complaints be directed officially to the developer/property manager. All complaints posted here may cause a drop in the value of our property. I hope you do share my view. Thanks.

 
July 25, 2008 at 11:22 AMSerina Bay

Yes, I totally agree with you, pls stop all the rumours to make things worse. In fact we should work hand in hand to stop the rumours instead of commenting so much about the bad things. Look at the bright side- things that we can do to overcome all the challenges faced? Form a comittee and change the loudsy, irresponsible management!

 
July 25, 2008 at 2:38 PMAnger

To whom are concern,

I agree with urs, but what i say is truth about Serina Bay. Problem is there & it not a rumours that some plp mention here that can make their property value down. First i just wan to ask some blogger or owner for Serina Bay, how much it cost u when u buy urs condo & what the value for nowday? I can tell u that it is abt rm125,000 for launching time. And now in market value it almost rm170,000 or higher. Is that a drop value for ur property? Or u just is a rich plp that wan to make money for urself as u buying the property just for investment??? Ask 2 urself!!! Then if u go to develepor or management office to make a complaint regarding too much problem that some resident facing now & nothing feedback from the management, what will u do? Wait and let plp to do ur part? That is a the cultural of Malaysian! "Tunggu & Tengok Macam Mana Dulu"!!! That is a funny thing!

Guys,

My opinion is this problem can be solve in a win win situation. No need to point whose fault or what so ever.
As a purchaser we all have the rights to voice out what ever matter that unsatisfied us as a purchaser. But, developer also has the right to ensure that purchaser will not breach the purchase agreement. Im sure that,developer also try their best,give their full effort to satisfy all our need and keep their promise. Just give them chance to settle the problem with their way and may be we can give them a good suggestion in order to get our right, with well manners,healthy discussion,human respect as a Malaysian.
Serina Bay is the Best!!..

 
July 25, 2008 at 4:14 PMAnonymous

It is a shame that most I mean MOST of the Penang property developer have its own kind of problems and poor quality. Why this happening and no one can stop them?

This is a good blog to let others to see how poor the developer is in the state.

My opinion they the property developer must deliver and not only just up to the buyers expectation but beyond it.

And i just hope that in future more quality developer came into Penang for development and kick those poor quality property developer out of the property market.

SICK

If the contractor is paying the developer 500K for 2 units, that consider a bribe. You can report them to ACA for investigation if you have any supportive documents.

 
July 25, 2008 at 4:59 PMAnonymous

RM170k is not a good value if you really go for a deep calculation...in case you sell off within 5 years, a penalty of RM5k will be incurred, another Rm5k to the property gain tax if this is not the 1st time u sell property,the additional legal fees inccured, interest rate that you're paying to the bank as well as the real estate agent fee in case they sell it on behalf...You still think that you are earning?

 
July 25, 2008 at 5:31 PMAnonymous

to all beloved owners of serina bay.


i) I assured u this property is a good buy. somebody is offering RM180K for my seaview unit, and i have just rejected the offer.

ii) in this area the price is RM220 per sqft feet already. lease hold or free hold is not relevant for apartment less than RM200K. further more, it is easy to apply for free hold now.

iii) The Star newspaper have highlighted the Break in in our apartment lately...to me , new apartment break in in Penang is not new....so don't worry about it. just need to tekan the police and Adun to help us.



i suggest the blogger should share value added info and discuss things to increase the value of our property.



long live serina bay....

Then i get his phone no. ,after about 5 minit when i came to serina bay ,then i call this person incharge "Jonahis".He told me he was not in Serina Bay ,he was in Komtar now .But when i came to the ground coffe shop , i saw he was there with Ismail.Then i ask them to sing for me , the Ismail said indirecly you must ask the SSP guy to pick the Sampah.I said i don't want ,i pick it myself .Then he say all the bull shit things ...then don't want to sign for me .The Jonanis just sit there keep quite , don't want to look at me also .I don't care just pass the form to the office ,then i will ask my contractor start my renovation .No point talk much with them .They all are same gang !

1) may i know if the maintenance fee still RM110 or has been increased?

2) how much is the market rate for rental (semi-furnished,furnished)?

3) Can we extend the 200sqft yet now?

Thanks !

 
August 5, 2008 at 10:40 AMOng

1) How's the maintenance fees issue? Is it really increased from RM110 to RM170? We must complaint !!

2) Can we extend the 200sqft yet now?

3) how much is the market rate for rental (semi-furnished/furnished)?

Thanks and let's fight for our Serina Bay !!

 
August 5, 2008 at 3:47 PMSB owner

I think the maintenance fees is still the same, RM110 monthly. I never heard of any fees raise, and I have paid the maintenance fees till September 2008.

As for the 200 sqf, I think we can start the renovation work, the inspection is done (i think 1-2 weeks ago), now I heard they are waiting for the letter. But many has started their renovation work, even the inhouse developer has started their 200sqf work in the demo unit on 17th & 18th floor.

I think the rental rate should be around RM600-RM650 for an empty house with 1 car park. Should be able to get RM750 - RM800 with semi furnished (with lights, fans, water heater), might be higher if got aircond and fridge.

I think, if the apartment's maintenance is good, people living there also behaves themselve, the rental rate and sales price can be further improved. Just my small small opinions. :)

how long do u guys think we need to renovate the 200 square feet ? as in making the 200 sq. feet into a room :)

Hmmm, no post in Serina Bay for a while, I think everyone is busy renovating the 200sqf. Once everyone has finished their renovation and moves in to stay, most of the shop lot there will open up as well, more people move in there, more demand. This is a good sign, Serina Bay now will have lesser and lesser problem, and the apartment price will goes up further. Do you agree? :)
