PPR Owners Given 3 Months to Eject Foreign Tenants

Be the first to review

People's Housing Project (PPR) owners, renting their units to foreigners, have been given three months beginning today to eject these tenants.

Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin said if the owners fail to do so; they would be subjected to action including the cancellation of homeownership rights.

She said action taken will start with PPR homes under the ministry nationwide, followed by the other sectors.

"Our officials will issue a circular on it," she told a press conference here Tuesday.

In addition, Zuraida said the ministry also plans to redevelop the residential area at Highland Towers after it has been left abandoned for almost 30 years when one of the blocks collapsed in a major landslide tragedy.

"The remaining blocks have now turned into a nest for addicts and criminals, and it worries people in the area," she said.

Zuraida said she will coordinate the matter with the relevant authorities to resolve the issue.
