Danau Kota Flat, off Jalan Genting Kelang, consisting of Block A, B, C, D and E. They have been classified as the low cost flats. This development has changed hand many times with a very colorful history. Many squatters from Kampung Pasir have been allocated a unit in the said flats. All the five blocks of flats has been managed by Danau Kota Management Service Sdn Bhd (Danau Kota Management), whose appointment as the management company for the said flats cannot be ascertained.
Despite the JMBs have been formed, they have no say in the management of the said flats. They have been asking the management company for the past years annual audited accounts and the balance of the Sicking Fund but their repeated requests have been ignored by the management company. The JMB members and residents have sought the help of yours truly because they are extremely concerned with the ways in which the said flats have been managed and no accounting records have been made available to them.
The management company has been collecting the monthly maintenance charges RM45.00 and Sinking Fund RM4.oo from about 1,914 owners/residents. If we were to go by the above, the monthly total collections for the maintenance charges should be about RM88,044.00 and Sinking Fund RM7,656.00.
Assuming for the moment that Danau Kota Management Sdn Bhd assumed the responsibility to collect the maintenance charges and sinking fund from 21-08-2007 (date of change of name of the company from the date of incorporation until 2012), the Sinking Fund should have a balance of about RM551, 232.00 (from 2007 to 2012 at RM4 x 1,914 residents/owners x 12 months x 5 years ) and total collections of the maintenance charges should have a total of about RM5, 167, 800.00 (RM45 x 1, 914 owners/residents x 12 months x 5 years). These calculations were based on the assumption that all the owners/residents paid up all their maintenance charges and Sinking Fund.
As at January 2013 the Danau Kota Management has chalked up a total debts of RM674, 009.35 for the electricity supply with TNB and water supply from Syabas.
The detailed bills for the said debts are produced below.
Electricity supply debt of RM483, 389.50
The average monthly electricity bill for the common areas for each Block of flat is between RM6,000.00 to RM7,800.00. If one were to take RM8,000 as a flat rate for the monthly charges, the total cost of the electricity for the common area is only RM40,00.00 (RM8.000 x 5 blocks) and there is still an excess of RM48,000.00 to pay for the other expenditures. Yet the Danau Kota Management chalked up the total debt of RM483, 389.50 with TNB.
The TNB’s bills:
Water Supply debt of RM190, 619.85
As for the water supply charges, it is the usual practice that the management company of apartments or flats will have separate meter for each apartment/flat and the owners/residents will be charged according to the usage. If no payments are made for the water supply over a certain period of time then the water supply to the said unit will be cut off until full payments are made. In view of this, there is no valid reason for Danau Kota Management to have chalked up a total debt of RM190, 619.85 from Syabas.
The Syabas bills:
Yours informed that Danau Kota Management Services Sdn Bhd has powerful connections. It is also managing other flats or apartments in the Setapak area. The JMBs must take note that if the said debts are not settled by Danau Kota management Services Sdn Bhd, TNB and Syabas may hold the JMBs responsible. Ultimately, the owners/residents may be held responsible for the said debts.
The relationship of Mr David Lim Kok Chu & Danau Kota Management Services Sdn Bd
Yours truly has also been informed that Danau Kota Management Sdn Bhd and/or its manager Mr David Lim Kok Chu, is also managing other flats or apartments in the Setapak area. It is hoped that other flats or apartments are not owing such huge debts to TNB or Syabas.
Yours truly has written a letter to Danau Kota Management Services Sdn Bhd for the attention of its manager Mr David Lim Kok Chu, who is also a colourful personality in Wangsa Maju, to ask him when Danau Kota Management Services intends to settle the said TNB and Syabas bills, and also to provide all the annual audited accounts for Danau Kota Flats.
Mr David Lim Kok Chu has hold himself out as the chairman of the JMB of Danau Kota Flat Parcel 2. He is so deeply involved with the Danau Kota Management Services Sdn Bhd and at the same time he is also the chairman of the said JMB. He is also playing an active role in the recently set up “Gabungan Badan Bukan Kerajaan” (Coalition of 120 NGOs) by Datuk Yew Teong Look, who has been hailed by YB Liow Tiong Lai, the MCA Deputy President and Minister of Health.
Mr David Lim Kok Chu has been listed as number 49 in the list of the said “Gabungan Badan Bukan Kerajaan Wangsa Maju” the purportedly consists of 120 NGOs of which 73 were unregistered societies as confirmed by Registrar of Societies (ROS) [No: 48 in the list provided by ROS] as shown in “YB Datuk Liow Tiong Lai assisted in deceiving the rakyat”.

Since there are no other account for years 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, we can only assumes that it must have made more profits because it has not been settling the bills from TNB and Syabas for years!
