    We wish to inform you on the implementation of a revised eligibility condition for subtenants to rent an HDB flat or room(s).
     
    Currently, HDB flats or room(s) cannot be sublet to non-Malaysian Work Permit Holders (WPHs) from the Construction sector. With effect from 1 May 2015, HDB subletting rules for non-Malaysian Marine and Process (M&P) WPHs will be aligned with non-Malaysian WPHs from the Construction sector. This revision is in line with the longer term plan to house non-Malaysian WPHs in the M&P sectors in purpose-built dorms and approved workers' quarters with facilities which better cater to the workers' needs.
     
    Flat owners who are currently subletting their whole flat or room(s) to subtenants who are WPHs from the M&P sectors may continue to do so for the remaining approved duration. 
     
    Information on the revised eligibility condition for subtenants to rent an HDB flat or room(s) can be found in the HDB InfoWEB.
     
    We would appreciate it if you could disseminate the information above to your salespersons.
