PETALING Jaya and Subang Jaya residents can now pay their quit rent in the 3C Complex in Bandar Sunway.
Petaling land office assistant district officer for revenue Mohd Nurunnajmi Amat Janji said residents from the two areas now do not have to travel to Shah Alam to pay their quit rent bills.
'The counter will only offer three main services '” quit rent collection and for property owners to check on their bills and to update us with name or address changes,' he said, adding that many were not aware of the counter at 3C Complex.
The Petaling district covers the urban centres of Subang Jaya, Petaling Jaya and Shah Alam and is estimated to have about 300,000 property owners.
Nurunnajmi said they were only serving a maximum of 30 customers a day now.
'We have the capacity to serve up to 1,000 customers a day,' he said.
In addition to being closer, the 3C Complex also has ample free parking. Visitors are encouraged to enter via Gate 3, the nearest point of access from SS13 Subang Jaya.
Kelana Jaya MCA chairman Yap Yun Fatt lauded this as a timely move.
'Property owners living as far as Serdang will find it easier to come to the 3C Complex counter instead of travelling to Shah Alam.
'It will be good to have similar counters in Puchong and Serdang,' said Yap.
'This is exactly what the taxpayers want,' said Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh, adding that requests for the land office to set up such a branch had been brought up by assemblymen for the past three years.
The counter is open from Mondays to Fridays from 8.30am to 3.30 pm. On Fridays, the counter is closed from 11.45am to 2.45pm for Friday prayers.
