Apartment Hunting 2015

One of my favorite past-times, apartment hunting.
Checking out this lovely old apartment. I'm excited and over the moon again!

This unit has not much to boast about, but one must be able to see the potential to turn into something worthwhile with some cleaning and touch-up.

Rented Out Fast and Furious

Below chronology of events and I consider myself so very lucky.  I count my blessings.

31/03/2015 - Letter notification from developer on vacant possession
16/04/2015 - Due to work commitments, unable to get to handover office until today to settle balances and get the keys.

And then it is a long waiting period for defects rectification and doing nothing because.... CCC (certificate of completion and compliance) is not ready.
From VP to CCC - 3 months - paying the bank installments and bleeding.

01/07/2015 - Informed by one of the real estate agents that the CCC is ready.  Agents got the news faster than I receive the letter from developer.....

04/07/2015 - Ordered furniture to be delivered on 11/07

11/07/2015 - Exasperating!  Furniture lorry did not come.  Due to the coming Raya, too many orders, didn't get prioritized.  Meanwhile, lights installed.

16/07/2015 - Took leave specially to wait for furniture delivery, luckily it arrived.
                   - Discovered more defects, complained to developer for rectification.

27/07/2015 - Appointment for defects rectification (drainage problems).
                    - One super-agent came to see my unit.  Super hard-working.
                    - Gave him 1 set of key as he has arranged viewing the next day.

28/07/2015 - 04/08/2015  Viewings, viewings, viewings, but no takers.
05/08/2015 -  Viewing and rented!
06/08/2015 - Tenant moved in!

All this thanks to one Super-Agent!  Fantastic.
From CCC to rental - 5 weeks!  Fast and Furious!
