Rumah Selangorku is a housing scheme based in Selangor. It was established with the aim of delivering affordable houses to qualifying citizens within the state.

Selangor is one of Malaysia’s most popular and populous states, making affordable housing a serious issue for many who want to call that state "home".

Those conditions make it particularly challenging for low-income and middle-income families to find appropriate housing.

Rumah Selangorku mandates that developers of qualifying developments construct a certain amount of affordable housing units as part of their overall project.

The initiative is led by Lembaga Perumahan dan Hartanah Selangor (LPHS), the state’s own housing organisation. It was first introduced in 2014, and is designed to encourage and support developers to produce affordable houses.

These properties will align with the organisation’s goal of building quality homes to meet the accommodation needs of local citizens in an affordable way.

Who Is Eligible For Rumah Selangorku?

rumah_selangorku1

Rumah Selangorku is a housing scheme designed to support the low-income and middle-income citizens of Selangor. That focus means that certain conditions must be met to be eligible for the scheme, which is as follows:

  • Over 18 years of age
  • Malaysian citizen
  • Resident of Selangor
  • Must not already own a property
  • Maximum household income of RM10,000
  • One application per household
  • Single applicants with dependents may apply

 

What Properties Do Rumah Selangorku Apply To?

While first established in 2014, changes made from 2018 onwards under the new Rumah Selangorku 2.0 initiative set out a refreshed framework for affordable houses within the scheme.  

Rumah Selangorku is a scheme which promotes a variety of unit types, depending on your preference and income levels.

It's split into categories A, B, C, D, and E homes, with different eligibility criteria depending on an applicant’s household income:

  • Type A: Maximum RM3,000/month (household income)
  • Type B, C, D, E: Maximum RM3,001 – RM10,000/month (household income)

The changes for Rumah Selangorku 2.0 most directly impact the Category D homes, which is the highest-priced category within the scope of affordable houses created under Rumah Selangorku. 

So what are the unit types and sizes under Rumah Selangorku 2.0? Again, there are a variety of unit types, dependent on your income levels (info taken from REHDA Selangor):

What Else Do I Need To Know About Rumah Selangorku?

Rumah Selangorku is an essential housing scheme which aims to deliver affordable houses for Selangor’s citizens. That means it comes with certain conditions attached to a sale.

  • Owners cannot sell property within 5 years of purchase
  • Guidelines state that owners cannot rent out the property
  • Applications for the scheme are live for two years
  • Applicants must reapply after two years if not successful
  • Applicants who turn down a home offer are placed as inactive for two years

What else do you need to know about the scheme? Here are some quickfire questions:

1) Do I get to pick my favourite property?

rumah_selangorku2

Unfortunately, no! You are assessed based on merit and then an offer is made. If you turn down that offer, you are placed as an inactive applicant for two years.

2) What if my spouse also earns an income?

The assessment is based on the household income, not individuals, and thus will take into account all earnings within the household.

3) Can we both apply at the same time?

Applicants are limited to one application per household.

4) Can I appeal a rejection of my application?

No, all decisions are final.

5) Can I sell my house after 5 years?

Yes, but you will need approval from the State Government.
