Guaranteed Return Default Hits Media
An ongoing dispute between a large block of condo owners at the Nexus Residence in Malaysia's Kota Kinabalu is being played out on the press.
The owners are alleging that lease back rental guarantees are over a year overdue.
Legal issues are now coming into play given that the developer reportedly has bank mortgage issues and has yet to provide unit owners with titles.
A group of owners who are based in Hong Kong has formed into a formal property owners association.
