It is interesting that the newly launched “The Garden @ Semenyih Mewah 4” is very much look-alike to our PP8A grand entrance especially the guard-house.
Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to notice that the sales brochure below is vividly stamped with a Gated & Guarded Community printed decal and illustrated with 4 motorized boom gates in place, not just mere quietly or verbally indicated by some less committed competitor through our past experience.
Moreover, I think The Garden developer is thoughtful and genuine enough to extend 2 years security maintenance coverage for free. This is most crucial and appreciated by the RA as generally occupancy rate to any new housing scheme is very low from the beginning, many investors are neither decided to sell nor keep for a longer period, and usually home buyers take at least 1 to 2 years for renovation before they can move in. Thus it is difficult for the resident association to manage collection themselves, and it is even more difficult having need to go through all the hassles or bureaucracies, applying and complying to the local authority for the necessary G&G approval and license such as TOL, water electricity connection, guard-house building permit……etc
For those unfamiliar with us, we have been through all these alone, we know the nightmare, so do our neighbour 8B and still arguing over the sharing of playground and demolition of perimeter fencing from the jabatan perancangan of MPSepang, the 8b guard-house complete approval still in question, and most disheartening our developer is staying off from the dispute or mess created by them.
I hope in future any developer who wish to sell their products as gated and guarded scheme please complete and put everything in place plus 2 years prepaid or free maintenance fees before hand over to the poorly organised inexperience RA. It is an unethical marketing practice to lure them as G&G, the fact that it is so difficult to get enough volunteers or purchasers to do all these. Many ignorant residents or new born RAs do not know about the running of G&G until they caught and stuck into the process.
Kindly let the purchasers beware ( Caveat emptor) , no more half-cooked potato or conjoined twin ( 连体双胞胎) please.
