    There is this issue brought up by someone that there is an approved cemetary that the developers have 'forgotten' to inform housebuyers in its midst. I think the location is close to the bukit rimau border and it is in kota kemuning.

    Hi CoryFan,

    I lived in Kota Kemuning for 7 years and here's some of my views about it. I will not touch on the positive points, as they are visible as you drive around the township or look at HGamuda's sales brochures.

    1) Still lacking in ammenities & convenience despite township more than 7 years old;
    2) Choice of schools/kinde limited (no colleges or varsities yet);
    3) One way in/out (as long as Bkt Rimau interchange is not ready);
    4) Traffic jams during morning peak hours seems to be more prevalent lately
    (Jams mainly due to KESAS bottleneck at Proton interchange)
    5) It's under Shah Alam Municipality (MBSA), ie. all modes of entertainment is strictly prohibited;
    6) Heavily poluted with choking thick smoke at times (especially during dry season) as open-burning is still actively undertaken by irresponsible folks living around the periphery of Kota Kemuning township;
    7) Depending on which phase you're interested in, there are houses which has bad roof leakage problems (due to either design or construction fault) & cases of obvious floor cracks (possibly due to cut-and-fill land not properly compacted).

    As for Kemuning Utama, all I can say is that this entire project sits on low land despite land being filled by the developer, Paramount Bhd. This area used to flood during heavy downpours before Paramount developed it. Its main Entry & Exit is shared with Kota Kemuning's one way in/out road into KESAS - can't imagine how this road & its roundabout can handle such heavy traffic load when more occupants starts to shift into the area...

    Finally, I'm not against anyone buying/renting in Kota Kemuning or Kemuning Utama, as both townships have their upsides too. Nevertheless, the above points should be taken into serious thought before a pricy decision is made.

    Yes, a muslim cemetary. The signboard went up several days ago.
    It is surrounded by residential houses and a school. The residents are now collecting signatures for a petition. The land ( for the cemetery) is about 10 feet above road level. Worse affected are those houses across the road from it, mostly corner lots...their upstairs are about the same level as the cemetary ground, perfect view of the dead standing on the balcony or looking out through the side windows of the masterbedrooms and the backrooms.

    That piece of land can be considered prime land for any commercial or residential development.

    Why the town planners saw fit to locate a cemetary among the living in a modern township like KK is mind boggling.

    The developer will have a lot to answer for to their customers. How much value do you think those properties drop overnight after the signboard went up ?

    There is still hope if MBSA and the developer can come to their senses and relocate the cemetary to a more peaceful resting ground for the departed ones since nobody has been buried yet.

    Apart from this, KK is a beautiful place to live in.

    If it is under MPSA, there is the restriction of dogs too. So if you are dog lover, look at puchong or subang nearby.

    MPSJ has less restriction on other things too as compared to MPSA.

    I know someone who has a corner lot that is just across the road from the coming cemetary. I think the only consolation is that it would be very quiet. If they do hear voices/strange sounds it has to be those number junkies. To think that they had spent a few hundred k renovating their house, instantly down the drain as no one would buy from them even if they want to sell. I think that the cemetary land was gazetted even before gamuda came in,only think that it was not highlighted as a feature of the housing estate!!!

    Typical of citizens of Bolehland. Have you looked around at the number of "for sale" houses lately. You can have plenty of choice nowadays choose one you like & comfortable with, you may pay a bit more but at least you know you are buying a house instead of buying a promise.if everyone still wants to support the developers then a lot of you are going to get disappointed again & again. you pay tru your nose to the bank & down the road you can't stay in the building you bought. read the thread on the poor guy who took a loan from stanchart & learn something from his mistake. don't support those MCA goons (developers).houses are getting cheaper by the day & why pay 5-7% more to those discrimating developers.I will like to see the day when theses developers say prices are the same for all purchasers but will they? high hopes so refrain from buying at least for the next 1-3 years & let us see if they are willing to change hi don't wory i am not an estate agent out to make money from you poor guys by convincing you to purchase completed/old buildings & houses.

    A very good lesson for everyone is to beware of empty plots of land. It may even be a playground and the developer may just sell the playground to someone to build a kindergarden or something like that. This happened in usj11 where a kindergarden was build over what was previously a playground and there were even plans to build a hawker center in part of what is now the playground.The developers maintain the line that by not telling what they know it does not mean that they are lying. Let the buyers beware. Look out for places of worship, hawker centers,and now cemeteries being built in your friendly housing estate!!

    Hawker centres are not so bad because they don't have loudspeakers which may wake you up when you are in deep sleep. Cemeteries alone is not bad until they attract drug addicts or people who look for quick fortunes.

    That is why I learnt my lesson and only look for completed houses with no large plot of vacant land nearby.

    Ignore all the advertisements and the media hype over the new property launches and all the bull. The market is such that there is a lot of properties on the market and here I am talking about ready houses, housses you can walk around. Get a feel of the neighbourhood. Go there during the peak hours. Normally agents will take you there when its off peak. Before committing, walk around the neighbourhood, talk to the neighbours, drive around looking for vacant land nearby. If it is within sight, forget it, you never know what may be built on it. Things gazetted may be de gazetted later. Dont take the risk. Look for tell tale signs of termite infestations and most of all talk to friends who live in the area. houses are invariably life time commitments for most of us and we do not want to end up screwed. You may have to pay a little extra but the extra is worth every cent

    Yes. Come into KK from Kesas and go 12 o'clock on the first 2 roundabouts. On reaching the 3rd. roundabout. make a 3 o'clock turn. Then you will come to another small roundabout, 3 o'clock again. Drive about 1/2 km, on your left you should see a new signpost that says "Perkuburan Islam ".( spelling ?)

    Hi,

    Thank you all for the comments. The reason I am asking is I had paid a 10% deposit for a corner unit in Kemuning Utama (subject to finance) .

    I am now in Brisbane Australia, the reasons I choose Kemuning Utama is that my brother had bought one there and I thought is great to stay near to each other.

    I did own a aquarium business in the Kota Kemuning (those shops at the first roundabout, opposite to McDonald). and I do quite like the atmosphere there.

    Anyway. Thanks again.

    If you have already paid for the house, then don't waste your time regretting the purchase. Let the house be completed and then go and see if you still like the place. If you do, then its ok. If not then put it in the market. You should not lose too much sleep over a matter that has already been decided.
