1,049 housing developers on ministry blacklist

PORT DICKSON: Some 1,049 problematic housing developers have been blacklisted by the Housing and Local Government Ministry.

Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heung said 3,782 board members had also been blacklisted.

He said the ministry would tighten conditions for housing developer licences to avoid projects from being abandoned.

"The ministry will be more cautious in the issuance of housing developer licences. Many people still want to become housing developers despite the high price of land and houses," he said at the relaunch of Taman Anggerik housing project in Teluk Kemang near here, on Friday, Oct 1.

Chor urged the Real Estate and Housing Developers Association (Rehda) and housebuyers associations to gather information on housing projects.

On Negeri Sembilan, he said the ministry had until Aug 31 completed 49 of the 151 abandoned housing projects. — Bernama
