Disgruntled property owners challenge govt. valuation

property uk

A group of property owners here want the Valuation and Property Services Department (JPPH) to explain the “over valuation” of their respective properties, after the Land Office slapped them with inflated premiums.

Speaking for the group, Rajesh Mansukhlal, who owns a number of commercial lots here, approached Bukit Gasing assemblyman Rajiv Rishyakaran for help after having appealed to the Land Office several times without success.

These premiums, he explained, were one-time payments for property owners to convert their residential lots to limited commercial land, which would last until their respective leases expire.

Rajesh explained that Rajiv had advised him to get an independent valuation of the land before appealing to the Land Office, which he had then proceeded to do.
