Instead of doing something that will benefit all apartment owners and residents here, the developer cum building manager have allocated two lots of parking bays at the common area for themselves. To add insult to injury, they even have the impudence to build collapsible barriers to prevent others from parking there.
Unless I have missed out something, my understanding of a common area is that it should not be for the exclusive use of certain parties only but for the utilisation of all the apartment owners. After all, the quit rent for the premises within the fenced compound are being paid for from the management fund. Each apartment has to contribute RM90 monthly into the management fund towards the upkeep of the common area.
The Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang (MPPP) is unable to do anything because according to them that is not within the ambit of their authority. The building manager ignores our repeated complaints. Staying here is like living during the feudal times. We are at the mercy of the building manager who does everything to their own whims and fancies.
