Purchase, Investment & Habitat  
Halim Abdullah 
The purpose of this book is to tell you everything that the condominium developer should have but never told you about the purchasing of condominiums, particularly the social and legal issues involved, such as ownership title and the by-laws and rights under the sale and purchase agreement.  We are forced to rely on the condominium model and the layout plans in the glossy advertising brochures for all the information we need.  Unfortunately, such little information may not be all that reliable.  In choosing the right condominium, the prospective condominium buyer should consider such factors as design, lighting, location, price, market conditions, future rental yields and the property developer's reputation and expertise.
