You know bout Rumah Mesra Rakyat? A project by the Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad (SPNB). I knew bout this but never really bother not until my mom received a call from my grandma at Kampong.
The Wakil Rakyat in Kuala Penyu is currently promoting this project to the orang kampung. Anything to do with the coming election? Oppss..
My mom plans to build a house on her tanah at Kuala Penyu. She is quite certain bout the plan. For her hari tua kunun. With her EPF savings, I doubt the amount is enough.
And the project is just perfect! Basically, SPNB will build a landed house with 700 sq ft (for Sabah/Sarawak) on your land and you would only need to bear two-thirds of the cost of building the house, which is in the form of an interest free loan. The rest of the cost will be borne by the government.

In practical terms, those under this scheme will be able to own their own homes by just paying RM150 per month for the duration of their loan.
My mom is very happy and excited about it and looking forward to proceed with the application thingy.

On other notes... Talking bout SPNB, sakit hati pula ni. It has been a year from the date of our Sale and Purchase Agreement with SPNB for the purchase of our under-construction Putatan-Platinum-Apartment. The apartment scheduled to be ready by Aug last year which later was delayed to Dec last year. Again we heard that it was delayed to March this year. It was then I googled and found few articles and complaints from other purchasers that the project is actually delayed until Sept this year due to some issues. Hmm..
Can't imagine if we are proceeding with our plan to go back for good this coming May and the apartment is actually not ready to move in yet!! Then, we will be definitely in big problem!! Hope there will be no more delay after this coz I think all the blocks are 90% completed.
