Taman Kepong made headlines in January 25, 2011 when the residents were confused over the dual title status of their homes when the grant states the status as temporary as well as freehold. This issue has been brought to light when some of the residents went and settle their bank loans and collect their grants.
Their 11AK Forms stated temporary ownership as well as freehold tenure at the bottom of the page which caused much confusion to the property owners. There were some owners who came to realize about this problem when they wanted to sell their properties.
This issue occurred as the developer was in a rush to complete the project and did not do a complete surveying work and thus the titles were still under temporary land titles. The final title will be issued after a licensed land surveyor has carried out a survey which will then be submitted to the Survey and Mapping Department for validation
