RumaWIP owners allowed to rent out their units on conditions

Posted in iProperty on 8 January 2018.

6 January, KUALA LUMPUR – The Federal Territories Ministry will allow owners under the Federal Territories Affordable Housing (Rumawip) project to rent out their units, subject to certain conditions.

Its Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said among the ‘conditions’ under consideration concerned owners who are transferred to another state after purchasing the housing unit.

“We understand the predicament faced and do not want to burden Rumawip buyers. For instance, if they were transferred to Sarawak, the unit can be rented out as it cannot be left vacant.

“However, they can only rent out their unit to locals and this matter will be monitored by the Joint Management Body (JMB). Legal action will be taken if they fail to comply,” he said after launching the “Rumawip Residensi Sentulmas” project and presenting its house keys here today.

Previously, Rumawip buyers were not permitted to rent out the units bought.

The completed Rumawip Residensi Sentulmas project would house 351 owners in a 30-storey block, with each unit measuring 900 square feet, and consisting of three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a covered parking facility. The project that was completed 23 months earlier than the expected date was the second Rumawip project completed after Residensi Pandanmas.

Skyworld hopes for govt to shorten Rumawip sell-off period

By Bernama – 

KUALA LUMPUR: Property developer, SkyWorld Development Sdn Bhd, is hoping the government will consider shortening the sell-off period for the Federal Territories Affordable Housing (Rumawip) scheme to five years in the upcoming Budget 2018.

Founder and Group Managing Director, Datuk Ng Thien Phing said the gap should be similar to the 1Malaysia People’s Housing Programme (PR1MA), which was reduced from 10 to five years.

“Affordable housing projects are our corporate social responsibility programme and we emphasise not just on affordability, but quality as well,” he told reporters at the “Topping Off” ceremony for the SkyAwani Residences.

The event was officiated by Federal Territories Minister, Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor here, today. Ng said SkyAwani Residences had been fully taken up and was targeted for handover in 2018.

“Currently, the SkyAwani Residences project, which has a gross development value of RM360 million, is 60 per cent complete.

“We expect it to be ready by August 2018, nine months earlier than the original construction period,” he said.

Going forward, Ng said the company would be launching its next affordable housing project, SkyAwani 4 in Setapak, following the successful take-up rate for previous such ventures, namely SkyAwani 1 (Sentul), SkyAwani 2 (Jalan Ipoh) and SkyAwani 3 (Setapak).

“We urge first time house buyers to take advantage of SkyAwani 3 because the value will increase due to location and facilities, such as the SkyBridge and SkyGarden.

“We try to do better with every Rumawip series in terms of development, as we focus on quality, not quantity,” he said, adding, SkyAwani 4 would not be the company’s final such project.

Ng said SkyWorld would keep acquiring new government and private land, while reserving its current landbank of 55.44 hectares for other development.

Rumawip: Affordable city condominium for target group

Posted on The Sun Daily on 9 October 2017

KUALA LUMPUR: One bank officer has achieved his dream of owning a home in the city here, thanks to a government initiative under the Federal Territory Housing (Rumawip) project for middle income earners.

Phang Jiun Jiann, 30, described his decision to purchase a unit at Residensi Pandanmas, which has the status of a condominium as opportune.

A Rumawip unit measures 79 sq metres (850 sq ft) or 84 sq metres (900 sq ft), consists of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and costs between RM290,000 and RM300,000 each, with facilities such as gymnasium, two swimming pools and covered parking.

“Looking at the price of houses nowadays, which is so exorbitant, I thought it was just impossible for me to own a home particularly in Kuala Lumpur.

“But I saw an advertisement about Rumawip in a newspaper and without haste applied online, and I got it in less than two years,” he told Bernama, adding, working youths who were eligible for the housing programme should grab the opportunity.
