• “Owners will be notified to remove it themselves before we schedule a demolition. If they refuse, they have to bear the cost if we do it.”

KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 17): For those who made extensions that have not been approved, and if Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) comes to your premises to tear down the illegal extension, be prepared to be up to RM20,000 poorer.

“Owners will be notified to remove it themselves before we schedule a demolition. If they refuse, they have to bear the cost if we do it,” a senior officer from the Enforcement Department at DBKL told The Star in a report.

“Usually the cost is between RM15,000 and RM20,000, but if we need a huge crane, tractors and backhoe, then it can cost more.

“It takes a lot of work for a demolition order. We need to get all the relevant departments involved, from traffic, building services, mechanical and electrical, licensing, legal as well as police and TNB on standby,” the senior officer told the daily.

He also added that DBKL would open an investigation paper, with the case taken to court if the stubborn ones refuse to fork out the demolition cost.

The daily revealed that up to 25 demolition exercises were carried out in the city last year.
