The enforcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO) in mid-March has forced a majority of businesses in the property development and construction industry to suspend their operations. As a result of that, property developers were seeking an Extension of Time (EoT) from the government to complete their property development projects in order to avoid any delays in the delivery of Vacant Possession (VP) of parcels and having to pay property buyers late delivery charges, among others.
However, are property developers to be blamed for delays that are no fault of their own due to the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic? Taking into account that this is the first time the country is faced with such a situation, it is in the hopes that the housing ministry will take note of these issues and provide all the necessary guidance and assistance to the property development sector to overcome them.
REHDA Institute is looking to provide a platform to address and discuss common concerns and suggestions on how property developers and contractors can best respond to the issues arising from Extension of Time (EoT) during this post-MCO period. The half-day event on “Latest Issues & Developments on EoT Post-MCO” will be held on 21 August 2020 at Wisma REHDA, Kelana Jaya.
