After 17 years of struggle involving "gangsters", broken promises and multiple trips to court, 24 families from the Ladang Bangi estate today finally signed the Sales and Purchase Agreements (SPA) for their new houses.
"We get a free house! Just now we went to look at it, it is beautiful," said the estate's Ex-Workers Committee chairman C Krishnan at the SPA signing ceremony in Kajang today.
Developer Trans Loyal Development Sdn Bhd will provide each family with a 870 sq ft apartment unit, complete with cabinet and air conditioning units, for no cost, and pay a rental compensation of RM625 for any house they move in, until the units are completed in 2020.
The developer has also promised to provide land nearby their new place to build a temple.
In return, the families will have to vacate the houses they are currently in by Dec 13 this year, said Trans Loyal general manager Chia Yan Song today, adding that the rental money will be disbursed beginning January next year.
