PropAdvisor is Malaysia's first community project to help landlords and tenants share their bad experiences and help create a better community. Everyone can now use this platform to screen their potential landlords or tenants to prevent any unpleasant experience.

Hi Seanlow31,

PropAdvisor is different compared to PropSocial as our platform focus on individual's credibility. This allows landlords to verify a tenants credibility before renting their property to them and vice versa.
PropAdvisor also allows a landlord to rate a tenant or tenant to rate a landlord to provide a useful reference for the community.

Our goal is to improve the whole renting experience by avoiding nasty landlords and tenants.

Hi Lucerne,

Thank you very much for your suggestion. To rate and review an agent is already on our roadmap and will be available in near future.

Is it legal for us to disclose our tenant info? Is it legally allowed... for you to disclose it to all via your platform? PDPA issue and all legality concern. Need to be careful.

What is the definition of bad tenant? There many scenarios and if the person finds out their names in the public domain like this and if the platform has no detail to prove it is true or without having the consent from the person to publicise it, the person may have rights to bring you and me who disclose or publicise it to court. I am not a lawyer but just that we need to know that personal information is sensitive private infor even the IC is partial blocked ..still u are disclosing their age n birthplace etc. Just make sure u have a legal counsel to back you up. No joke. Understand the intention is good.

Hi propertybbb,

Thank you for your comments and suggestions.

PropAdvisor does not reveal full personal information of the reported tenants or landlords. The identification number is encrypted and masked. Only during searches, it will perform a match from our backend system.

As for landlords to report their information, it is not an issue as they are merely sharing their experiences online to help others avoid or make a better judgement whether to rent to this tenant or not.

Our research has shown that many of this information can also be found on platform such as Facebook and they actually reveal more personal information as Facebook does not filter their data. Example if someone would share the tenant IC number or passport number on Facebook, it will be visible as it is. However, on our platform, we actually mask the last four digits.

Our platform works like a rating system, meaning it can also be the other way where a landlord would like to give a good review to a tenant.

Essentially we are trying to help build a better community to avoid nasty tenants.
