  1. The government's latest Town Council Management Report cardgave its sole “red” grade to Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council in the category of collecting service and conservancy charges (S&CC). The three-constituency town council, run by the opposition Workers' Party, was slapped with the red banding because "more than 5 per cent of their households had S&CC arrears overdue for three months or more," read the report. "Also, more than 50 per cent of their monthly S&CC collectible are overdue for three months or more,” it added. It also showed a white "pending" field under corporate governance, a phenomenon that, like the town council's "red" banding, occurred in the Ministry of National Development (MND)'s last report as well. The report, released Thursday at noon, measured the performance of Singapore's 15 town councils in the year ending March 2013 — contrary to four previous versions of the report, which graded the town councils' performance on a half-yearly basis. The town councils were measured for cleanliness, maintenance, lift performance, service and conservancy charge arrears and corporate governance. All the town councils scored "green" bandings for cleanliness and lift performance, but nine were banded "amber" for maintenance. These nine apart from the AHPETC were: Chua Chu Kang, East Coast, Holland-Bukit Panjang, Jurong, Marine Parade, Pasir Ris-Punggol, Tampines and West Coast. Potong Pasir Town Council was also given an "amber" banding for its conservancy charge arrears management. Yahoo Singapore has asked the Workers' Party town council management for their comments on the report's findings and is awaiting the response. http://sg.news.yahoo.com/town-council-run-by-workers--party-gets--red--grade-for-conservancy-arrears-in-govt-report-050611452.html

  4. http://sg.news.yahoo.com/suntec-brawl-victim-rejects-s-20k-offer--report.html 3 Cheers to Paul L Liew... Something seems to be very wrong with this case. In fact when this A**es put up for bail and declared that they are required to travel to...blah blah country, doesn't our judicial system smell a rat after the Romanian have escaped in the same manner. (except no bail) IMO, we really needed to buck-up our Law system....I wonder how is our MIW will handle this issue further down. Forummers what's your take on this case? Thanks for your feed back.

    TP & Car Repo

    This morning saw a car at my MSCP being prepared to be towed away. Got a TP there as well. I was thinking it could be because of loan default, but if that is the case, how come a commercial situation between bank and borrower will involve TP? Like dat then using garmen resources for private entities and our TP will have even less time to patrol roads leh. Any other possibility?
  6. bros, going from the pics, i can see these are exactly the same car with some touch up.

    Fees payable to repo man...

    Was fixing my bike in the multi storey carpark and this Terios drove up and just side stop with harzard lights on in front of a few cars. For more then half a hour he was there, not moving. Irritating in the sense he can park properly as the carpark lanes was not very wide. Before I left, this tow truck drove up and immediately he moved is car. I have to say Tow truck guy was super pro and fast...in 5 minutes, the BMW was towed, then I realised Terios was the REPO man.....He actually block the BMW to stop it been driven off if owner realise what is about to happen. I have seen the owner before, believe he will stop it as there will be an admin fee, storage fee etc on top of the default payments if want to get it out. Now, here is the thing, the REPO man guard his find like a pot of GOLD....He must be paid damn well for it, do you know the market rates?
  8. Hi, 1. Where can I find a one-stop shop for repo cars? I know some are posted by GE Money in SGCarmart. Any other sources? 2. What are the risks involved in getting a repo car? 3. Can anyone share experience of getting a repo car? Thanks for the help.
  9. saw some repo car selling at quite good price, and realise they are without keys. does it mean that the cars were repo without the owner consent? so if need to change key, need to change the lock too? else previous owner can drive off anytime right? Anyone know how much is it to replace the lock and key for Fit 08 ??
  10. Home > Breaking News > Singapore > Story Sep 22, 2008 It can be tricky being a bailiff Court bailiffs may well find themselves in delicate - or even dangerous - situations By Sujin Thomas WHEN Mr Mohd Hatta Abdul Razak, 40, pays a business call at people's homes, it is usually not the kind of business that is welcomed. He is a court bailiff of the Subordinate Courts who seizes items from people in debt. He is the one who shows up when a creditor, such as a bank, applies successfully to the courts for a writ of seizure and sale. He accompanies the creditor to the debtor's home or office to seize the items. If no settlement is made within seven days or if the court does not issue an order to stop proceedings, the seized items are auctioned off to make good the debt. The situations he finds himself in can be delicate or even dangerous. He recalls going to an HDB flat in Ang Mo Kio in the 1990s to look for a debtor who had defaulted on his rent. The man's wife climbed onto a window ledge and threatened to jump. He had shown up at the flat with an HDB representative and policemen to serve a writ of possession, an eviction order issued by the court. He said: 'We're trained to not only observe our debtors but also our surroundings. It happened very fast. Half of her body was already out of the window.' The police managed to pull her back into the flat. Mr Hatta said: 'I told the creditor, HDB, that it was in the best interest to call the execution off. The case didn't come back to me afterwards, so perhaps something was worked out.' The Subordinate Courts now has six full-time staff and another half dozen Certis Cisco officers to perform bailiff duties. On the job, they don navy blue vests bearing the court logo. Bailiffs identify items such as electrical appliances and furniture for seizure by pasting sticker seals with the courts' logo. Fixtures such as shelves and religious items are left alone. After 18 years on the job, the hardest part for Mr Hatta is having to deal with the family members of debtors, the majority of whom are HDB dwellers. 'They'll beg you. Sometimes, you'll find children crying because you are seizing their TV set. It's a shock for someone new to the job.' He started out at the Subordinate Courts in 1989 as a building maintenance officer. He held that job for all of nine months before being made a bailiff. Training back then was on the job. He followed a more senior bailiff, who guided him. Since 2004, bailiffs-in-training have attended a two-month course including a law theory test, a two-week field attachment and a mock-up test. Trainees include not just bailiff hopefuls but also solicitors who have been authorised by the court to perform the job. During the mock-up test conducted in a room on the second floor of the Subordinate Courts, trainees are pitted against 'debtors' to test their mediation skills. Head bailiff Abdul Ghani Majid, 58, who has about 20 years' experience, said this test weeds out those who 'react adversely', that is, those who lose their temper. Out in the field, difficult debtors are a reality. A female bailiff once received back injuries at the hands of a debtor brandishing a bicycle chain. Mr Hatta, who has three children, does not advertise what he does for a living to friends and family. 'I don't quite like the idea of them coming up to me when they are in trouble. I always ask them whether they want guidelines on how to settle their debts or how to escape. 'If they want to escape settling the debt, I'll tell them not to come to me.' sujint@sph.com.sg http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking%2BNew...ory_281272.html when the propaganda machine run this.. it cud well mean one thing only. akan datang at a flat near you. or it mike even b you/ me. ok.. at most jamban man sleep under bridge. more good years ahead!!!
  11. Dunno if this topic has been posted. Couldn't find it so am putting up now... Anybody read the ST today? Home section carried a story of a repo man suing this Aunty for causing damage to his vehicle. Story goes like this...Repo man spots one vehicle he supposed to repo (Mitsubishi Evo 7 BTW), and park in front blocking the car's exit. Repo man talks to guy in car who turns agressive and starts shouting and this drew the woman's attention. She ran out from somewhere and created a scene. Seems she's the car owner (a Mits Evo 7!!!??) Repo man insists he called tow truck, not going to move his car...Woman turns hysterical, climbs onto repo man's civic, and starts jumpin on the roof! video captured in Stomp...submitted as evidence. Repo man subsequently sue her for causing damages. Woman, while in court, cross examine repo man, asking him if he authorised to repo her car la, if he working for the bank lah etc etc...Jusge slams her telling her these are IRRELEVANT! Why? Becos the case against her is for her action of Mischief and causing damages to repoman's car! This story made me laugh non-stop...I hope the judge whack the aunty hard...Dun know how to think and behave at her age...
  12. In an article on Straits Time today, more than 10,000 cars are repossessed per annual. More are going into the REPO business and banks are paying quite good money for each car to be towed away between $200-$250. They had go to the extend of having bigger yards to store these cars, instead of finding the root cause to this car ownership behaviour in the country. Car owners had expressed our unhappiness and concerns towards High car prices COE esculation Additional ERP gentry points Increase fuel pricing Continuosly increasing car insurance Questioning the true value of annual road taxes Naturally how safe are we driving on the Singapore road, from the Nicholle incident And now, new laser camera to gun you down on the road. (which often cause some driver to discover about it last minute -->jammed brakes -->pile up) It had come to a time I wonder if are we criminals on the road, to be blame for every right doings, cursed for every wrong doing and suck in any economic downturn. http://straitstimes.asia1.com.sg/singapore...,247820,00.html? http://straitstimes.asia1.com.sg/singapore...,247823,00.html?
