Strata Development & Management Advisory
There is no doubt that common property is an important feature in all strata schemes. Developers build, offer and provide various common facilities and common services in their strata projects to not only attract prospective purchasers but also to increase the market value of the strata properties. While strata developments continue to mushroom across the country, public awareness of the law regarding the strata management and common property remains low. This is particularly a problem for new strata owners and inexperienced management committee members. This article aims to explain the basics of common property.
The Joint Management Body (JMB) has a legal personality as being a statutory corporation body, which means that they can sue or be sued by a third party concerning the failure to perform their duties and responsibilities. They are a corporate body with perpetual succession having its common seal for any legal commitments and no one can use the seal of JMB unless with the approval of the Joint Management Committee (JMC). The JMB shall be deemed to be dissolved within 3 months from the date of the first meeting of the Management Corporation (MC). Thus, the formation of JMB is only effective if the MC has yet to be formed.
An auction is a form of sale. In an auction, a property is publicly put up for sale. An auction has a seller and a varying number of prospective buyers.
At HAEME LEW, we assist our clients on numerous occasions relating to auctions of properties, among others, the purchase of auctioned properties, representing purchasers, challenging auction orders, etc.
We also assist our clients involving judicial auction (an auction where an order for sale needs to be obtained from either the High Court or the Land Office under Sections 256 and 260 of the National Land Code 1965). Therefore, where the title has been issued to a charged property, a chargee bank needs to apply for an order for sale before the property can be auctioned off.
