Update on 40 More Questions You Should Ask Your Lawyer Before Buying a Residential Property in Malaysia

As of 6th February 2013, I have finally edited the final draft of the manuscript for 40 More Question You Should Ask Your Lawyer Before Buying a Residential Property in Malaysia. I have also sent the first draft of the Bahasa Malaysia equivalent of the book entitled 40 Lagi Soalan Yang Anda Patut Tanya Peguam Anda Sebelum Membeli Rumah Kediaman di Malaysia.

I was told by the publisher the book will be sent for distribution in April 2013. As the first book is still selling well, there will be a reprinting to ensure the books will be sold side by side. My publisher, True Wealth Sdn Bhd is now doing its own distribution.

The first book has been a great marketing tool for my medium-sized legal firm. As I was told by Azizi Ali who is someone I learned how to invest in property 13 years ago and is now a friend, a client and a mentor, it is better to hand someone a book with your name written on it than a business card.

Thanks to my first book, I became more than just a lawyer. I am now a lawyer, an author, a speaker and even a point of reference for prominent people. Last Monday I met Mr. Piya Sosotikhul, the grandson of Boonsom Boonyanit of the Boonsom Boonyanit vs Adorna Properties fame who now has a Facebook page Justice for Boonsom Boonyanit vs AdornaProperties as he found me through my book. An honor and I can consider it as a landmark in my career as a lawyer. Mr. Piya was looking for an avenue to help more than his family as he learned how his family's case has become a landmark in Malaysia legal system.

I am writing my next book which will unravel the mystery of housing loan. The working title is 40 Questions You Should Ask Your Lawyer Before Taking a Housing Loan in Malaysia under the Ask the Lawyer series of book.

I don't have any picture to share on the cover of the book yet. Maybe I will update it on this same page when I have it. Till the next update!
