In Johor, the maintenance work of condo is a huge problem. For smaller scale and not so upclass one, it is a much bigger problem. If the condo is well maintained, then i think people will flock in to buy. It a vicious cycle down the road, condo MC corrupted. People don;t want to pay fee. If people are not willing to pay, the MC said that no one is paying and he got no money to maintain the property.
I don't know about Johor, but in KL, I was told that if owners don't pay their maintenance fees, when the time will come for them to sell their unit, the MC has the power to prohibit the sale of the unit until all the owed money with incurred interests are recovered.

But who wants to buy into a condo with no or minimum maintanence ? It's a very risky business to own a condo in Malaysia,Johor.
I don't know about Penang. But i think penang is quite ok.

Building maintenance overall in JB is quite substandard. Look at all the major shopping malls up keeping, their toilets' cleanliness, etc. all due to poor working attitude and supervision. Same story in most condos, worse with tenants not paying their fees regularly

This is good news but did you get this information? Where to find out more information?
1)Based on this information, it can only be used at 2nd link.
2)How to define long term pass holder only?
3) How much?
From this https://www.facebook.com/groups/jbtraffic/ website. It gives a lot of useful information, including many videos on JB traffic, particularly between JB & Sg. Bookmark it if you find it useful.

Total waste of time to do such Mac. They should have a card for each person who frequent.
If they really want to be pro business, they should actually try to get people to easy access in Malaysia via Johor. Then they can think of developing Malaysia and Johor.

i think this PH government also not very business suavy.

Hi All,

Can i have some sound advice please. Ever Since they close off the MAC Access for regular Singaporeans, Staying in Johor for long term has been a pain and a source of frustration and Stress. I usually stay in Johor each time for 3 weeks before exiting to Singapore and to return back to Johor again 2 days later. Each time i enter back to Johor, the Immigration Officer ask me a hosts of difficult questions, albeit like really trying to make things very difficult for Singaporeans. there was even one officer who told me straight in the face that i am not supposed to stay in Johor for more than 2 weeks (yeah then why 30 days Visa).

it's very stressful having to face the officer each time and being interrogated like a criminal. I have a house in Johor, and that's the reason why stay in Johor for long periods at a time. Is anybody facing the same situation? Is there anyway to avoid such a situation? Can a Singaporean apply for any form of Long Term Social Visit Pass? Thanks a lot for any practical safe advice.

Precisely. Unlike sinkieland open her leg wide wide!
And yet we allowed so many Malaysians to come and work in Singapore, to earn our high currency, and for them to enjoy Retirement back to Malaysia in 5-8years? While we Singaporeans suffer like hell in our Own Country for 40 years? While we allow them to come in to work, they should also allow us to go in. It should be mutual beneficial and not one Way! The current dwindling economy state of Johor is dependent so much on Singaporean Spending, Live and let live.

Singkie garment pro foreigners especially towards jiuhukia. Very sympathetic towards latter. But jiuhu garment not pro singkies. I already told my frds/relatives not to purchase any msian properties for retirement purpose. Unless they willing to apply for MM2H.

basically you already had it quite ok compared with those travelling in and out daily. not much leeway you can get now as whatever policies they will come up will not be for our convenience first. it must be what they can derive from implementing something. guess we hv to make do with whatever is available.
