Re: Unauthorized/ Illegal Use of Premises


There has been an increase in the number of complaints regarding the unauthorized use of premises. These range from illegal use as boarding house, dormitory and the like to overcrowding. Arising thereof safety, comfort and convenience of owners and authorized residents are adversely affected. Towards this end, everyone should help and do their best to eradicate illegal use of premises. Your support and co-operation will help to enhance the image of Pearlbank.


We wish to take this opportunity to highlight to those who have allowed illegal use of their premises that besides infringing the provisions of the Land Titles Strata Act, the laws of the authorities, they have also breached the By-Laws of MCST Plan No. 395 (Pearlbank). Amongst other rules, regulations and By-Laws currently in force, we wish to bring your attention to the following By-Laws, which have over the years been adopted by the Management Corporation.

A subsidiary proprietor who has been informed that his unit is being leased and used for such purpose or who persistently leased this unit for such purpose as is he used his unit as such.


Clause 116

Security access cards are registered under their respective unit numbers and are not transferable. The Management Corporation or its agents reserve all the rights to disable the access card and their deposit forfeited if subsidiary proprietors or occupiers are caught abusing or cheating.
