House Buyers Association of Malaysia (HBA) is a voluntary non-governmental,
non-profit and non-political organization. Our working committee consists
of volunteers from various professions.
Our work revolves around sheer humanitarian principles and ethics
and we strive wholly for a balanced, fair and equitable treatment for house
buyers in their dealings with housing developers.
Committee came into existence on 16th October 1999 comprising
of a group of aggrieved house buyers who had discovered to their disappointment
that getting their woes heard was a frustrating process. On 26th
July 2000 the Association was registered by the Registry of Societies and
then formally launched as the House Buyers Association (Kuala Lumpur & Selangor)
on 20th April 2001 by YB Dato’ Seri Ong Ka Ting, the Minister
of Housing and Local Government.

developers could only lodge their complaints to the very people who had
caused their problems! With a slogan "Striving for House Buyers' Rights
& Interests" the HBA is determined to get current legislation changed so
that those buying new homes will get the same degree of consumer protection
and redress accorded by the government to all other new products of substantially
the complaints we have received and from the media reports, the damage sustained
by house buyers who have trusted their developers to deliver their products
efficiently are too numerous. HBA would like to see a level playing field
between developers and house buyers and that the rights of house buyers
are not short-changed.
continue to give constructive criticism on the fundamental requirements
to ensure that new homes are built and delivered timely and properly and
that those buying them can have realistic confidence that they are buying
well with a commensurate level of after sales service.
Our logo is designed in the
shape of a radar screen symbolic of being the vigilant watchdog of the housing
industry and the laws governing it.
