Real Estate News: KPKT to take Action against Tenants abusing PPR Facility

KOTA TINGGI, Jan 25 (Bernama) — The Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry (KPKT) will issue notices to tenants of People’s Housing Projects (PPR) who rent out their units to others.

Its deputy minister Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique said KPKT would not compromise on the matter and would use the provisions of the law to get back the units.

“We will not compromise because the PPR houses were built to help the people and the low income group,” she told reporters after handing out aid to the poor in conjunction with Chinese New Year at Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina (SJKC) in Taman Daiman Jaya, near here, yesterday.

Also present were Pantai State Assemblyman-cum-deputy Speaker Datuk Baderi Dasuki, Kota Tinggi District Council president Mohd Fizwan Rashidi and Tenggara Division MCA and Gerakan heads Gan Ong Pin and Albert Teoh, respectively.

According to Halimah, if a tenant of a PPR unit was found to have rented the unit to someone, a one month notice would be given for the repossession of the unit.

Meanwhile, she said a 24-hour notice would be given to the tenant of a PPR unit that has been rented out to a foreigner.

Halimah said the government would build more PPR houses to be rented out at RM124 a unit to help families earning RM2,500 and below.

Earlier, 500 poor people from the Chinese community, including senior citizens, single mothers, and orphans received a hamper and RM300 cash, each.
