From the review of the literatures, the main objective is to find out what were the main factors contribute to the causes of the abandonment, how it affect the affected homebuyers and how the problem could be solved from BOS perspective. From the data analysis and the findings, the study revealed that the main contributing to factors of abandonment are Private Developers, Housing Contractors, Economic Crisis, The Government, Financial Institution, and Politics. The effects to the affected homebuyers are financial burden, mental torture, physical exhaustion, emotional instability, and social isolation.
