MIEA Supports Residential Tenancy Act

Lim Boon Ping is the President of The Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA)

The issues of racial discrimination among landlords in the renting of their properties is of great concern in our practice. If unchecked, this may cause a divide among races and eventually break the core existence of a plural society. While Malaysia is proud to state that we practice multiculturalism and co-existence among races, racial discrimination in the name of providing shelter over someone’s head must be taken seriously. After all, shelter is a basic necessity and guaranteed by the constitution.

“In this respect, the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA) supports the Government’s initiative to enact the Residential Tenancy Act (RTA) which in general, is a good move to protect tenants and landlords. It should provide a win-win formula for both landlords and tenants. In this respect, we at MIEA, representing the 25,000 real estate practitioners make this clarion call to the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Housing & Local Government to address the issue of racial discrimination in the renting of premises,” says Lim Boon Ping, President of MIEA President.
