KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 19): Can you keep pets when living in a strata-titled property? The answer is yes4, you can, said lawyer and partner of Pretam Singh Nor & Co Datuk Pretam Singh (pictured).

“According to bylaw 14 in the Third Schedule of the Strata Management (Maintenance & Management) Regulations 2015, pets are allowed unless they cause annoyance or a nuisance and pose health risks to other residents in the property,” said Pretam during his presentation entitled “Strata Management Tribunal: Issues and Recent Cases” at the Malaysian Institute of Professional Property Managers’ inaugural conference.

The Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry is still undecided on the review of a moneylending policy for property developers although it has been over a month since the idea was mooted.

On Sept 8, Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Tan Sri Noh Omar said eligible property developers can apply for moneylenders licences under the Moneylenders Act 1951 (Amendment 2011) to provide loans to property buyers.

Even though the Act has been around for a while and a few developers already have the licence, Noh’s proposal – mooted as a solution for affordable-home buyers who were unable to get loans – ran into strong opposition from various quarters.
