Abstract

Abandoned housing projects is one of the housing problems in Peninsular Malaysia. Even though there are laws and policies provided by the Malaysian government to govern housing industry, yet abandoned housing projects problem is still an unsettled issue for the Malaysian government to tackle. The real victims are the purchasers themselves. Virtually, there is no specific and common ways to face the problems of abandoned housing projects. This is due to the fact that in each and every abandoned housing project, the problems and issues faced by the stakeholders vary. Thus, different methods are used to face the problems especially to rehabilitate the projects. If the projects are not viable for rehabilitation, the projects will be stalled forever without any prospects for rehabilitation, to the detriment of the purchasers. This paper will discuss the law and practice in rehabilitating abandoned housing projects in Peninsular Malaysia. It will also illustrate, by way of comparative method, the law and practice as applicable in New South Wales, Australia. From the comparative approach, certain suggestions will be forwarded at the end of the paper for facing the problems of abandoned housing projects and their rehabilitation in Peninsular Malaysia.
