Slowness of Land & Survey dept. will affect Twu economy February 28, 2009

Posted by wong jimmy in Land.

I have received many complaints from the public and businessmen that the Land and Survey Department services are getting slower.


Instead of progressive, the department is regressive unlike the Immigration Department that is progressive and now can issue passport in a matter of days.


Before it only took three-days or the most 1-week to charge a title to the bank, but now it takes up to one to three months.


For those taking loans, it is a big stumbling block, and for property developers it’s a hindrance on cash flow. It is also not fair to the banks because banks need to release loans and charge interest.


It’s the same with land titles and strata titles where low cost housings owners and tenants had already finish paying the loan but are still waiting for the titles.


Why is the Land and Survey Department service and process on issuing titles and strata titles never improve and in fact getting slower?


I feel the department should computerize so that titles to be charge to banks for loans could be confirmed within hours.


As I see the situation is not getting better, I am going to bring it up in the Dewan (State Legislative Assembly), as many people are not happy with the service and this in particullarly will have an adverse effect on Tawau economy.

I empathize with anyone who has to wait up to 3 months to charge the title to the bank. That must be an unfortunate inconvenience, and I am sure it is disruptive to the efficiency of any land or property purchase.
