SEREMBAN: Low-cost houseowners are now required to submit an application to the state if they wish to sell their homes within 10 years of buying it, said Mentri Besar Tan Sri Mohamed Isa Abdul Samad. 

He said the state would only consider applications on a case-by-case basis. 

“This requirement was endorsed at an exco meeting in May and came into effect on June 1. “We want to remind the people of this requirement in view of the recent federal decision to check abuses involving low-cost houses,” he said after signing an agreement yesterday between the state and Felcra Bhd to develop land here. 

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had said recently that application procedures for such houses would be tightened to check fraud in their sale and purchase. 

He had said some unscrupulous people had bought such houses more than once.
