Low-income earners to get two-year rent freeze

LOW-INCOME families who rent flats from the Government will not be hit by a rise in rent when their monthly income exceeds S$800 (RM2,000).

Instead, their rents will stay unchanged for two years. They will get another two-year waiver should their household income still remain low compared to the rent increase they face. This will be decided by the Housing Board on a case-by-case basis.
