I would not expect that to be free if it's inside my gate.
I have a landed house in Malacca. I can understand what you mean.
Before GE12 (2008), the local council resurfaced the road in front of the house with new tarmac except the frontal entrance of houses. My Dad who live in the house told me the contractor requested money to tarmac the entrance area but he didn't want to pay.
I asked a contractor that I know to cement the frontal area.. the cement is still in good condition until now.
Can someone tell me up to which point is our responsibility? Today, a MPSJ contractor came around asking for RM250 to pave the front entrance to my residence.
Sorry for the late reply. I lived in USJ12. Early this month, the whole of USJ12 was retarred. The retarring INCLUDES your driveway from your gate to the road. They will first retar all the driveway FOC. This is p okart of the scope of work. But if there is a Lorong, they will NOT retar it at all. In my case, I managed to negociate with them and got it done for free. Hope to take some photo to show them here.
