The mastermind behind Taman Residensi is KIP Land which was founded in 1993. They develop land in Klang Valley and Johor, and are planning to penetrate the office and hotel market in 2013. Besides KiPark Sri Utara the developer has also developed a few other housing projects. Residents of Taman Residensi will have to face heavy traffic during peak hours outside their homes as the area is well known for being congested during then; however the neighbourhood might just be exclusive enough for residents to put up with the traffic. Buyers might want to take into account the history of the place when making a purchase as in 2008-2009 the residents were wrongfully charged commercial quit rent due to negligence of the developer. The residents had to go through a mighty lot of hassle before the issue was rectified and their money refunded which may be part of the reason why there are so many units of the houses in Taman Residensi are on sale now.Investors might want to take note of the above issue if they plan to buy a house in Taman Residensi and do their homework to check if the issue has been fully rectified and whether it will repeat itself in future. Buyers looking for a permanent home will also want to look at the above issues as inasmuch as the houses here are spacious, beautifully decorated and well located, they wouldn’t want to go through the same problems when the time comes for them to pay their quit rent. Other than that, Taman Residensi is a lovely place to live in.
