About RA


Our Residents Association (RA) is a voluntary non-profit organisation set up by Taman Putra Prima Phase 8A residents/purchasers. The RA formation was initiated by the developer (Letter Ref : SP/TPP-PH8A/064-8A dated 5/8/2011) to assume the responsibility and the continuity of the security guard service to the proposed gated and guarded community scheme, before the expiration (11/10/2011) of caretaker period of  6 months by developer/main-contractor.

Preamble  to all Phase 8A 197 units Owners/Tenants about RA Membership and Security/Maintenance Fees 

ALL 197 units of 8A purchases had signed the petition to the YDP MPSepang for the application of erection of guard house and perimeter fencing. (All 197 duplicate copies are kept with the RA)

The letter from the Developer to All 197 units owners clearly stating that from 10th October 2011 Midnight, the security service will cease and the developer would require the Resident Association to take over the functioning of the security services and other matter relating to Phase 8A. Effective 11th October 2011, Resident association or the resident committee should be functioning and all matters relating to the guard house, hiring of security guards should come under the purview of the RA.

Since you are part of the residents of Phase 8A, it is your duty to ensure the safety of the household and your obligation to make sure the area is conducive to stay.

Your participation is crucial to the success for setting up the committee. Failure to do so, we assume that you are agreeable with whatever decision made during the meeting (Reference: ST/TPP-PH8A/064A-8A issued by Plenitude 5th Aug 2011)

Maintenance mandatory prepaid imposed by the developer from 24/4/2011—24/10/2011) is @ RM80.00/month amounting to total RM480.00. After 11th October 2011, all collections of maintenance or security fees shall be under the purview of the RA. (The Committee shall have the power to fix a re-entrance fee for any person who has allowed his membership to lapse through arrears.)

(Ref: SP/TPP-PH8A/145C-8A  see below and no amount of funds were transferred to the RA.)

  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!

  2. See add-on document for the basis of RA formation (call from developer dated on 5/8/2011)

    A leader among residents

    A Resident Association is like a mini-government, it is in fact one. If you own a home with common property, you automatically become a member, like it or not. Over time, we have noticed that home owners can be categorised into three groups
    — those who make things happen,
    — those who wait for things to happen and,
    — those who asked what happened.

    Which group do you belong to? Choose your leaders well and prosper or wait for the next election at the annual general meeting and run for council member post.

    Other tips include like how much interest has the candidate shown in the community and its undertakings? Has there been regular meeting attendance and participation in activities? If not, investigate the sudden interest. Be particularly careful about “one-issue” candidates who volunteers because they dislike a certain contractor or are opposed to a recent service charges increase.

  4. Hi! I think posting the guards photos is not logical because, most of the time, the security always change their guards. So, it will be a hassle to put up their photos everytime a new guard comes in. Agree??
