Synopsis

As a city develops, an increase in the development of high-rises is inevitable as a result of limited land availability within the proximity of the city. Rapid urbanisation in the late 70’s has led to the development of more high-rise buildings. This provides a different type of property ownership, and subsequently led to the introduction of the Strata Titles Act in 1985. Today, strata living has become more acceptable and approximately 30% of the Malaysian population reside in stratified properties.

Stratified property developments have given rise to multiple issues affecting all parties dealings with it, including the house buyers, developers, architects and land surveyors. It has become an issue of great urgency, with regard to the legal transaction aspect for strata title properties. Other than Strata Titles Act 1985, stratified housing development also involves many other laws and regulations; such as the Housing Development Act 1966; Street, Drainage and Building Act 1974; and Strata Management Act 2013.

The recent amendments to the Strata Management Act was intended to overcome management and maintenance issues of the stratified buildings as well as to provide further interpretation of strata title. Nevertheless, recent problems that arose in stratified housing development revealed that there are other underlying issues that need to be dealt with, and which put the industry into dilemma.

PAM CONTRACT 2006 – PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE

Date: 4th August 2018, Saturday
Speaker: Ar. Joseph Tan Meng Hooi
Time: 9:00am – 12:00pm
Venue: Dewan President, Level 2 PAM Centre, Jalan Tandok, 59100 Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur

Speakers' Biography

A graduate of the Bartlett School of Architecture & Planning, University College London, he has worked in the United Kingdom and Malaysia over the past 28 years.

He has been in private practice for over 20 years in Kuala Lumpur, working mainly on housing in the private sector with projects ranging from minor renovations to high-rise apartments.

The speaker has no particular affection for Building Contracts but views them as essential tools in the exercise of the Architect's profession and is still puzzled by the high level of ignorance of the PAM Form within the Building Industry.

Synopsis

Most standard forms of Contract evolve over time to suit the changing circumstances they find themselves in and the PAM Form of Contract is no different. Its evolution from previous forms is already well documented and that it will in turn, evolve again in the future is not in doubt.

This paper is divided into 2 parts.

The first part is not a historical discourse into the antecedents of the current 2006 Form of Contract but instead, attempts to look into salient differences between the current and preceeding form.

The second and final part will try and high-light some of the key changes between the 2006 Form and the soon to be available 2018 Form.
