Secondly, RM315 million will be going into the construction of 3,000 Rumah Mesra Rakyat units, under the Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad (SPNB).

RM125 million has been allocated for the maintenance of low cost housing, with assistance going to the repairs of houses that are getting too old or have endured natural disasters.

The fourth initiative includes RM310 million for the Program Perumahan Penjawat Awam Malaysia, a housing program for civil servants.


The government will also be working together with financial institutions to prepare a Rent-to-Own programme, which will be implemented up until 2022, for 5,000 PR1MA properties, worth RM1 billion in total. This programme will specifically be for first time home buyers.

Stamp Duty Exemptions:
