The gate pillar snapped in two, bringing the gate down with it.
Safe to say everyone dreams of owning a house. Some work hard to save money so they can finally land their dream home.
However, a dream house can also turn into a nightmare.
Such an incident allegedly happened to a new homeowner in Taman Puteri Mas, Kluang, Johor, shared on Facebook by Razali Jamari, a neighbour.
The concrete gate pillar of the front gate broke and the whole gate collapsed. The shocking part was that the pillar was hollow and filled with rubbish.
“To developers all over Malaysia, if you want to make more profit, don’t do it like this,” Razali remarked.
In the comment section, Razali said the developer has promised to take responsibility for the issue and also promised to inspect every pillar of the houses in the residential area.
He further informed that the owner of the unfortunate house had only been staying there for a month before the gate pillar snapped in two.
Razali’s sharing also went viral on Twitter with many expressing shock over what happened.

Twitter user Hafizi Izzudin said that the residential area is new and claimed he had been dealing with loan matters for some buyers.
He said that he did not expect the structure to be that bad and claimed that the cheapest house in the residential area is RM225,000 with a monthly repayment of about RM1,300.

Housebuyers should be aware of their rights regarding building quality.
Do you know about the 24-month Defect Liability Period (DLP)?
According to iProperty, the sales and purchase agreement (SPA) specifies a predetermined “Defect Liability Period” during which the developer has 24 calendar months from the date of handover of unoccupied possession to rectify and make good any flaws, shrinkage, or other issues that become evident.
