The Condominium Management Authority has filed a case in the Colombo Magistrate Court against Blue Ocean Group and its Directors Sivarajah Thumilan and Surainee Thumilan.
The move follows multiple complaints since November 2019 by residents of the Blue Ocean Residencies Complex at No. 23 Moor’s Road, Colombo-6. The CMA sought an ex-parte order against Blue Ocean Group due to non-completion of the condominium complex. The residents of the Moor’s Road complex expect the case will be heard on 17 November.
Since 2018, residents of the Moor’s Road complex have been facing many issues. It was stated that the building did not have an approved COC due to the lack of car parking facilities, fire extinguishing systems, an incomplete transformer room, electricity and water meters not installed and the non-meeting of required standards. Further, the property is also mortgaged to Sampath Bank for Rs. 45 million, with accrued interest totalling to Rs. 60 million unsettled to date.
Separately, six Blue Ocean Residencies are facing cases against them due to various issues with the CMA.
