Amendments to Building Maintenance and Strata Management Bill being finalised (The Straits Times Forum)

Thursday, 13 April 2017

We refer to Mr Ho Meng Hee's letter "Management councils can be as big a problem as proxy issue" (28 February 2017). The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) concluded its final consultation on the proposed amendments to the Building Maintenance and Strata Management Act (BMSMA) in February 2017.

The proposed amendments include making changes to the proxy system that Mr Ho had highlighted.

We will carefully consider all feedback and suggestions received in the public consultation before finalising the amendments to the BMSMA.

Nonetheless, we note Mr Ho's feedback on the issues within his estate. Mr Ho may wish to contact BCA via our feedback form and provide us with more details on them.
