Property owners lodge report over alleged amendments to sale & purchase agreement

JOHOR BARU: Some 45 owners of luxury condominium units at Danga Bay lodged a police report today claiming that the property developer amended the sale and purchase (S&P) agreement which they had signed without their knowledge.

Perling assemblyman Cheo Yee How said the report was lodged when the owners discovered the matter following a decision by the Johor Baru Consumers Claim Tribunal last June 7, which was in their favour, over a case filed by some of them concerning the property.

Cheo claimed that the property owners found that there were some pages that did not have their signatures which had been inserted in the S&P agreement.

"We want the Housing and Local Government Ministry and the relevant authorities to take note of such amendments in the S&P agreement and to take further action.

"This gives a bad image on the country, and a reminder to other developers," he said when met by reporters at the Sentral police station here today.

One of the owners, Chok See Wai, 42, claimed that there were also amendments in their documents for bank loan.

"I found the (bank loan) documents have been falsified with two of the pages with a forged signature," he added.

Another owner, Yew Pei Lee, 40, said there were also pages in her S&P agreement which she did not sign, despite she having signed all the pages in 2015 when she submitted the document. ā€” Bernama
