Keeping good building maintenance is a real issue in Malaysia. If we look at the condos, apartments and flats in our country, I think most people will find that building maintenance are generally below average if not disgusting. The paintwork, leakages, condition of the lifts, rubbish collection area, parking areas, landscaping .... everything deteriorate 5 years after the residents moved in. Exceptions only in some very high end condo development. Why is it so? Who is to be blamed? How can we improve the situation? Go to have a look at Singapore properties even their lowest end HDB flats, you will notice a huge difference.
