On the 1st Dec 2007, we're officially the owner of a house no 9, Jalan BRP 2/1B at Bukit Rahman Putra. It was quite a long wait since we signed the S&P back in July 2007. We thought everything will get speed up since we've got a pre-approval from the bank. It seems that the other party's bank was so slow in releasing all the required documents.. hence the delay.
Yesterday, we brought a contractor for renovation. We were told that the BPT will surely won't allow us to do any external extension to our house. My wife called the BPT and was assured that they won't allow any extension, but was told that if it is already built, we might get fined and that was it.. so.. in another word, there is always a 'backdoor' .. build the extension and if we get caught, just pay the fine.. sound reasonable :D
We'll see how much is the quote will be. We need to do some painting too .. actually, the whole house need to be repainted. The outside paint is peeling off and the inside, somehow the developer used a really cheap paint (OR mix with low quality paint). I won't be surprised if the contractor will quote a high price but will see if everything fit our budget, we'll just go on with the renovation.. otherwise, will do the major renovation first.
