The government will reconsider allowing buyers of the Federal Territories Affordable Housing (Rumawip) project to rent out their units, subject to certain conditions.
Federal Territories Minister, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, said the ministry will further examine the terms and conditions to allow the buyers to rent out their units, following an announcement by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on the matter during last year's budget presentation.
“We may allow them (Rumawip buyers) to rent out their units, if they were forced to transfer to a location far from the city, such as Sarawak for instance.
“Of course they can’t just leave the units (empty).
“We will look into the matter, but they will only be allowed to rent out their units to locals,” he told reporters after launching the 30-storey Rumawip Residensi Sentulmas project here today.
