Selangor aims to build 60,000 affordable homes by 2025 — Exco

By Nas Norziela Nasbah

SUBANG JAYA, July 27 — Approximately 53,514 Rumah Selangorku units have been offered to the public online, via Sistem Penawaran Hartanah Negeri Selangor, said state executive councillor for housing Rodziah Ismail.

She said 34,288 units have since been completed and handed over to buyers, while the remaining 19,226 units are currently under construction and expected to be completed by 2025.

The homes are part of the state administration’s commitment to develop 60,000 units of affordable homes, under the First Selangor Plan (RS-1).

“With each completed unit, it means one family in Selangor now owns their own home and no longer needs to rent on the open market,” Rodziah said.

She was speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony for Rumah Selangorku Pangsapuri Harmoni TWL Subang Jaya earlier today, with Selangor Housing and Property Board executive director (LPHS) Datuk Juhari Ahmad in attendance.

Also present were Subang Jaya City Council Deputy Mayor Mohd Zulkarnain Che Ali, and TWL Holding Berhad executive chairman Datuk William Tan Way Lian.

Rodziah added that since 2014, a total of 227,784 housing units encompassing 407 projects have been approved by the state government for low and middle-income citizens.

“I believe with the introduction of these units into the market, it will alleviate the needs of the low-income (B40) and middle-income (M40) groups, especially in the period leading up to 2025,” she said.

Meanwhile, Rodziah reminded members of the public to not be deceived by real estate scam syndicates which misuse the Selangor state emblem and the LPHS logo.

The board has detected a number of instances in which the emblem and logo were misused in several advertisements for home sales, especially on social media.

“These ads were revealed to have falsely used the identity of housing projects like Rumah Selangorku. More worryingly, some agents involved were charging between RM200 to RM1,000 in booking fees.

“Upon verification with the developers, LPHS discovered some of these agents were not actually appointed as sales representatives for the respective housing projects,” she said.

Rodziah urged the public to verify the authenticity of government-implemented projects via the Rumah Selangorku registration system via the link ehartanah.lphs.gov.my.

“LPHS will not hesitate to lodge police reports against any social media accounts, individuals, companies, or entities found to advertise housing projects by misusing the Selangor state crest and the agency’s logo without permission, as well as falsely representing themselves as Rumah Selangorku agents.

“Those found engaging in such activities will face legal action,” she said.
