Penang To Raise Price Of Foreign Purchases Of Landed Properties

GEORGE TOWN: Penang has proposed to raise the minimum price for foreign purchases of landed properties from the current RM500,000 to RM1mil for those on the mainland and RM2mil on the island.
The existing limit of RM500,000 for permanent residents would be retained, said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
He said the proposal was the first step to protect the interests of Malaysians.
“We hope to implement the proposal by June or latest by July.
“Therefore, we would like to get feedback from non-governmental organisations, property developers, foreigners and the public,” he told reporters here Thursday.
