Teo said the state government had previously completed several abandoned housing projects comprising shop houses and residential homes and hoped that the Taman Rembau Bayu case would find the best solution.

“Previously, the state government resolved the issue of abandoned shop houses and residential homes in the Bandar Satelit, Senawang, Taman Perpaduan Heights Kuala Pilah and shop houses at Jalan Veloo here.

“Hence, I hope the Taman Rembau Bayu case will be resolved ... and I hope the buyers can be patient,” he said.
