JOHOR BAHRU (July 6): The Housing and Local Government Ministry is looking into blacklisting People’s Housing Project (PPR) tenants, who fail to pay their rents, under the Credit Reporting Agency (CRA) including CTOS.

Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin said the move to study the issue was among matters that would be detailed under the Strata Management Act 757 (Act 757) in the next three months.

She said the Act would enable a management of a strata house to include ‘quit-rent’ and insurance under maintenance fees as well as to enable tenants who did not pay rent for 12 months to be charged interest.

“The Act 757 is already a law but when it is not being enforced, it is not effective.
