The thought of buying your first home can be daunting – you have to consider a lot of aspects before deciding on ‘the’ home you want to live in for most of your life. One very important aspect you have to give extra attention to is the developer. Why is it important? It was reported that in Peninsular Malaysia alone, there are more than 150 abandoned property developments since 2006. This has left a lot of home-buyers in limbo as they will have to continue servicing the mortgage despite the development being abandoned.
