Wrong to amend development plans after signing S&P, rules court – Princess Cove

JOHOR BAHRU : Amending development plans after the sale and purchase agreement is signed is a breach of the contract, the High Court has ruled in a class action brought against a developer by 145 buyers of luxury condominium units here.

In its decision handed out on Monday, the court agreed with the purchasers of condominium units at Princess Cove that the developer ought to have obtained their consent before amending the original plan of Phase 1 in the S&P into Phase 1a and 1b.

The court also concurred with the plaintiffs that the handing over of vacant possession in October 2017, claiming the certificate of completion and compliance (fitness for occupation) was obtained for Phase 1a, was in breach of the S&P and, therefore, the developer has to pay late delivery charges.

It also ruled that the 13 months’ maintenance charges paid before the actual completion by the buyers as per the S&P in November 2018 have to be returned.
