Weekly Industry News

Following findings that people have faced discrimination over their ethnicity when seeking a place to rent, the Housing and Local Government Ministry will come up with new laws to protect tenants against such prejudice.

Its Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin said they are looking at drafting a Residential Tenancy Act to better protect landlords and tenants.

“The new law will include provisions against discrimination in accordance with international law,” she told reporters after unveiling the new National Housing Policy (2018-2025) here yesterday.

“Models used in Australia and Scotland will be considered,” she said.

The proposed enactment comes under the new policy, which is set to be passed by Parliament in 2020.
