Giving condo owners a say over fees for maintenance

25/05/2001 The Star

Buyers of condominium and apartment units will be able to decide on the rate of maintenance fees under the new Building and Common Property Bill to be tabled soon.

Deputy Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk M. Kayveas said at present only developers of condominium units were given the right to set maintenance fees.

“Under this Bill, a joint management body comprising developers and buyers will be set up to take over the management of the building.

“Through this body, both the buyers and developers can then decide the maintenance fees,” he said in reply to Senator Jaya Partiban.

To a question from Datuk Chin Fook Weng, Kayveas said condominium and apartment owners would still had to pay their assessment bills as these were collected by local councils.

“House assessments are paid for the maintenance of the areas outside the buildings while maintenance fees are confined to the common property in the condominium complex,” he said.
