Tussle over land in Joo Chiat Place

Two sisters in their 80s locked horns over a piece of land in Joo Chiat worth over $2 million. And last week, the High Court awarded the property to elder sister Zulaikha Bee Abdul Kader.

The disagreement centred on a deed which their mother Fatimah Sultan made in 1971, declaring that she held the land on trust for Madam Zulaikha.

There are three houses on the 688.7 sq m plot in Joo Chiat Place, and the spat involved two of them. The third is owned by Madam Zulaikha’s brother-in- law Mohamed Abdul Kader.
