CRACKS APPEARING IN NEW BTO FLATS, HDB OFFICER UNWILLING TO DO SITE VISIT

Dear Editors,

I refer to the recent article published in Straits Time regarding crack lines appearing in Punggol BTOs.

We are staying in our new BTOs along Yishun Avenue 1 Blk 431D and several of us here have noticed crack lines appearing in every room in our flats, after renovation commenced above us.

We are worried about safety and have reported this issue to HDB. However, as the DLP just hit 1 year, they mentioned that they could not do anything much. While we understand that it may not be a structural defect because the HDB officer mentioned that the crack lines need to be more than 3mm or something, we believed that their professional officer should at least come and check instead of brushing us off by calls.

We hope that the authority will do something. Thank you.
