Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are new development transactions shown on brickz?
- No. We only show official sub-sale transactions with the stamp duty paid.
What is an official sub-sale transaction?
- A transaction is considered an official sub-sale transaction when the name on the title is transferred and the stamp duty for the transaction is paid to LHDN.
I recently did a transaction but I do not see it on your website.
- The transactions available on brickz are based on JPPH records which only records a transaction once the stamp duty for the transaction is paid and not when the SPA is signed. It will take few months for a transaction to be reflected on brickz. Therefore, the transaction data for the latest months are incomplete as there is a time-lag between the sale of a property and the subsequent registration of this information on JPPH. The missing data is included as it becomes available. Our analytics are also based on the data available and may be subject to revision as and when more data becomes available.
I bought a property in 2013 but I do not see my transaction on your website even though I can see other 2013 transactions. Are all transactions updated on brickz?
- No not all transactions are reflected on brickz. We only started compiling the transacted data from Aug 2014 (KL, Putrajaya and Selangor) and Jan 2015 (Penang and Johor).
- The dates shown in the transactions are the dates of the Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA). However, transactions are only recorded as official by JPPH when the Stamp Duty is paid and not upon the signing of the Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA). Therefore our monthly updates will have transactions transacted on various months.
- The reason for this is because the Sale and Purchase of a property goes through a variety of processes and the length of the purchase completion after signing the SPA depends on the complexity of the property being purchased.
- So, due to this complexities, it will take between one to twelve months for transactions to be reflected on Brickz. And in some extraordinary cases, even longer.
Are any JPPH data omitted by Brickz?
Yes, to improve the reliability of the information, our pattern recognition system automatically omits data such as:-
- Not complete. For example, missing size, price or area
- Not consistent. Price or size is too low
- Bulk Purchases. Bulk purchasing of 10 or more units in the same project by a single person in a single month
- Multi-share Inconsistency. If there is more than one buyer for the unit and the share percentage does not match.
Does Brickz modify any of the data?
We do not edit any critical information of the data such as address, unit price, lot size and the transaction date. We however do modify non-critical general fields such as town, land use and building types to ensure it is consistent to what we hope our users are familiar with
