Study of freehold land title, to be granted within five years


25 September, SEREMBAN – The state government is conducting a detailed study to provide freehold land titles to leasehold housing land as promised in the 14th general election (GE14), said Menteri Besar Aminuddin Harun.

Also the State Assemblyman for Sikamat, Aminuddin said the state government has had several meetings and workshops on the matter to gather more comprehensive information as it involved hundreds of thousands of homes.

He added that the latest was a workshop held on Sept 21 on the conversion of leasehold titles to freehold.

The implementation will take time and needs careful study, it cannot be done in one or two days or one or two months, we need a really detailed study because it is a problem of the people…that is why we said we will solve all the problems within five years, he said in reply to a question from Yap Yew Weng (DAP-Mambau) at the second meeting of the first term of the 14th State Legislative Assembly here today.

Yap asked about the status of the state government’s plans to award freehold titles to new villages in Negeri Sembilan which was promised in principle by Pakatan Harapan (PH) before GE14.

Aminuddin said the implementation date has not been decided as the study has not been completed and the government today is working to implement the agenda in a clean and transparent manner.

However, the freehold status will only be given to homeowners who had lived there before GE14, he said.

Earlier, in a supplementary question, Yap asked for the implementation date of the manifesto.
