Singaporean House in JB was Sold Without His Knowledge


He thought it was the best decision he and his family have ever made.

In 1994, Mr Mohammed Dawood Mohamed Jamaludin (above) bought a four-bedroom, 4,200 sq ft two-storey semi-detached house in Taman Bukit Kempas, Johor Baru, for RM208,000 (S$80,800).

But five years later, the property — located an hour away from Woodlands Checkpoint — was sold without his knowledge.

Now the ownership of that home has changed several times, but Mr Mohammed Dawood is still determined to reclaim the more than RM160,000 (S$62,300) he invested into the property.

The 68-year-old cleaning supervisor has since filed suits in the Malaysian courts to reclaim his investment, but this could be a lost cause as the house is built on land meant for bumiputras (indigenous people).
