    If they use the standard S&P mandated by Housing Ministry, then it is residential because that S&P is only for residential properties even if they are on commercial titled land. Otherwise cannot live in there.

    http://www.hba.org.my/laws/housing_r...-12-01-hdr.htm

    A standard S&P regulated by Housing Ministry looks like this:
    Schedule G for Sell-then-build landed - http://www.hba.org.my/laws/housing_r.../schG-2007.htm
    Schedule H for sell-then-build high-rise - http://www.hba.org.my/laws/housing_r.../schH-2007.htm
    Schedule I for Build-then-sell landed - http://www.hba.org.my/laws/housing_r.../schI-2007.htm
    Schedule J for Build-then-sell high rise - http://www.hba.org.my/laws/housing_r.../schJ-2007.htm
    Thanks for the info. Now we know that those under MOP can have another option to invest. Good for those stuck under the scheme here currently.

    I would still recommend that you structure your purchase such that you can still buy a BTO flat, as that can be financed mainly through CPF. After MOP, you can then monetize your asset through sale or rent, as taught by our visionary leaders.

    Thanks RedsYNWA.
    Agree, it is the best route to buy a bto flat.
    That's why we rent here while waiting, but decided to forego the bto flat after some changes.

    What difficulties are you facing to buy a BTO first , like to share ? It is National Conversation Time .

    This is a Sg citizen entitlement. In the past, Sg citizens have 2 bites of the cherries. Now left with 1 cherry so don't kek kee. Go for BTO or new from HDB then do rental and consider stay in Iskandar. New or BTO flat can always compete with those from resale and so rental returns is better as cost is lower. Don't do NS and reservist up to 45 yo for nothing man!

    Miw boh kek kee, take million$ salary, 23 months bonus, pensions upon reaching 55 yo + salary + bonus +++++

    looking at the numbers BTO is launching, i wont be supprise property in Iskandar may hv more potential than HDB by 5-10 years time.

    Sorry, any information for MACS renewal? I did it at BI Jusco last year and want to renew. The application procedure in the website seem complicated.

    At Causeway
    Leftmost lane Malaysian customs park just before inspection lanes, small room on the left side. Take off footwear before going in. Just bring rm30.

    At Second Link.
    Second from leftmost lane. At the moment last custom booth with Macs drive thru sign. If it is manned you can get it done there without getting out of car.

    Hi Bro Batok Seri,

    For the causeway MACS, can I clarify that you are referring to driving lane instead of via bus? So i can park by the side, and bring RM 30 for renewal? If so, it sounds easy. Thanks....

    BTO can use CPF to pay......and 1.2m highly qualified 'foreign talents' are coming in to boost our population no. up to 6.5m. Buying a BTO is definately a wise decision, if you are eligible. If you cant beat the system, better play by it. Too bad I misssed the boat.... Sighs.

    if Macs lapsed.They just chop yr passport.
    No big deal because nowsadays no need to find and fill up white card.

    But if commute daily, you risk running out of passport pages.
