Is it time for BTS?
12/07/2008 NST By Andrew Wong
IF advocates of the Build-Then-Sell, or BTS, movement ever need another
reason to push their method of housing delivery into the mainstream, they
only have to look at what's happening in this current cost-push environment.
At the rate building material and transport costs are rising, I daresay many
developers who have long opposed them, preferring to embrace the
Sell-Then-Build or STB system instead as it permits them to collect money
upfront before completing their end of the bargain, are beginning to buckle.
Timely move for `BTS 10:90 concept'
SELANGOR Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim's announcement that the state
will take the lead in adopting the Build-Then-Sell (BTS) concept for
delivery of houses is a timely piece of good news for house buyers. I
believe the BTS he was referring to is the variant of the Sell-Thenbuild (STB)
version the National House Buyers Association (HBA) termed as the "10:90
concept". It is a hybrid of the present Sell-Then-Build (progressive payment
mode) and the absolute BTS (sell only upon full completion of houses). House
buyers pay only a 10 per cent deposit upon signing the Sale and Purchase
Agreement and the remaining 90 per cent is payable upon completion of the
houses with electricity and water supply (ready for tapping) and Certificate
of Fitness for Occupation (CFO), or the new version Certificate of
Compliance and Completion (CCC), and possession with keys.
Build-and-sell concept deferred,

SEREMBAN: The Government has deferred the build-and-sell concept, said
Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan. “Developers
are finding it difficult to secure loans from banks for their projects
because banks feel the risks are greater,” he said.

Don't shelve 10:90
23/01/09 NST EDITOR'S LETTERS
We refer to news articles on Jan 20 quoting Minister of Housing and Local
Government Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan as saying the build-then-sell (BTS)
concept will not take off in full swing due to the global economic
meltdown. First, 10:90 is NOT a BTS system under which houses are
completely built and with full certifications before the developers sell
them. Under our 10:90 variant, developers can commit sales when all
approvals have been acquired, even before they start construction work.
Buyers pay 10 per cent upon signing the Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA)
and make no further payment until the houses are fully completed when they
pay the remaining 90 per cent and complete the transaction.
Adopt system to safeguard

WE read with despair the report entitled “Buyers left in a lurch by

buyers are suffering such a fate with no one to turn to.
HOUSING PROJECTS: Build-then-sell is the best way to go
13/03/2009 NST By : CHANG KIM LOONG for National Housebuyers Association,
I REFER to the letter on abandoned housing projects from S.K. ("Govt
should keep track of such projects" -- NST, March 10). The problem of
abandoned housing projects that leave a trail of havoc in their wake is
brought about by Malaysia's system of buying and selling houses, called
the sell-then-build (STB) system.In this system, buyers make progressive
payments as the developers build the houses. If all goes well, the buyers
eventually get their houses. But if the developers are unable to complete
the houses, the buyers are the first to suffer: no house to take over;
bank loans to service; and worse, no solution in sight.
HOUSING PROJECTS: Ministry must take a clear stand
18/03/2009 NST By : S.K. , Kuala Lumpur
I REFER to Chang Kim Loong's advice to house buyers in his letters "Check
the fine print first" (NST, March 11) and "Build-then-sell is the best way
to go" (NST, March 13). I commend and thank Chang and his team at the
National House Buyers Association (HBA) for their efforts to not only
educate the public on property purchases but also to curb rampant losses in
the housing sector by spearheading the introduction of safeguards for
HOUSE PURCHASE: Just scrap the old system altogether
24/03/2009 NST By : CHANG KIM LOONG for National House Buyers Association,
The disadvantages of the sell-then-build system are obvious to all. I
REFER to the letter "Ministry must take a clear stand," (NST, March 18)
from S.K. of Kuala Lumpur. I thank S.K. for the kind words in his letter.
It is sentiments like these that give our volunteers at the National House
Buyers' Association the strength and courage to keep going, despite all
odds. I wish to express our sympathy to S.K. for the predicament he is in.
The fact that there are hundreds of thousands of other house buyers
suffering the same fate is of no consolation to him at all. They are all
victims of a flawed system that had been allowed to operate for the past
