Fair review on HVP
Collected my keys in March.
The height of my unit is very good, and the size of unit doesnt look that small after all :)
To be objective, there are indeed some defects but management was really helpful and rectified most the defects in a timely fashion.
I'm facing the Mindef side and the view is impressive. This is my 3rd unit and I have 2 others facing the unblocked Binjai Park at Dunearn/Bk Timah Rd. Hillview Peak's view is the best because it's really tranquil and scenic - compared to my current 2 which can be noisy because I'm facing the roads.
- It was found in a particular ground floor unit (and the mgt has rectified the situation and kept it under control)
Re: Cracks on wall
- Obviously remarked by one who has never stayed in high-rise apartments. Some minor hairline cracks are normal in walls and any contractors can tell you these can be remedied. In my unit, I dont have any cracks. (Check your glasses to see if the lens cracked)
I did experience some slight seepage (likewise in one of my current units). In HVP's case, mgt was quick enough to pump PC chemical to seal up defect. And now all's fine.
Re. Legal Actions against developer
Nothing has been firmed up. Suing the developer is the last resort and we believe in addressing issues in an amicable manner. Good thing is the residents in HVP are informed, wise and sensible - and definitely will not resort to drastic move that result in lose-lose situation.
Real and sensible potential buyers will not hoodwinked by malicious and toxic comments posted by 'owners' who may not even be real owners. If it's really that bad, it reflects the decision making competency of that particular buyer(s).
A shrewd buyer will do enough ground work and exercise good decision before buying any property.
After all, HVP is near the nature. It will be worrying if there are no birds, butterflies and bees around.
