Embattled Johor developer Country Garden Danga Bay, which is embroiled in a separate court case against dozens of property buyers from Singapore, China and Malaysia, has launched a fresh claim against five Singapore members of a condominium management committee over a recent change of property manager. 

TODAY understands that four are Singaporeans and one is a Singapore permanent resident.

The case is set to be heard for the first time at the Johor Bahru Strata Management Tribunal on Thursday (Aug 4), a day after a hearing began for a separate lawsuit brought by more than 40 property buyers against the developer.

The strata management tribunal is a legal body that moderates disputes related to buildings with a strata title. 

Condominium management committees, also known as joint management bodies, typically work with the developer to ensure proper documentation, payment schedules, accounting and the upkeep of the property.

The condo developer in this case is alleging that it and its representatives were not informed of the agenda of a management committee meeting held on June 18 this year, a court document obtained by TODAY showed.

During the meeting, the committee had voted in favour of changing its existing property manager Bright Property Services.
