Leasehold or freehold should not be the only deciding factor when it comes to property. Location wise is important as well, a lot of leasehold property now is selling at millions. Look the the location and neighbourhood, the surrounding convenience, the quality of the home. These are what makes a property valuable.

always free > lease. try to find new freehold in KV matured area, you will see how limited choices you have.

but yeah, location plays a vital part too. freehold in ulu place wont get any appreication.

buying a property with fewer lease year also impact your mortage.

About leasehold properties, a lot of people always wonder this "what about gov take away my property"...

Well let me tell u, if the state wants to take back your property, it can be as soon as vp.

If your property is freehold, state cannot take away the properties? Surprise! They still can take it away when they want.

Also, leasehold tenure can be extended, so why not extend it if it goes down below 50 years to prevent the outcome of gov taking away your leasehold properties without compensating you?

That being said, i am going for freehold landed but if within the same area, same sizes, almost same workmanship, almost same township planning but freehold landed costs me more than 100k then i might give leasehold landed a hard consideration.

I have heard a few places lease 99 years expired in msia, but since the area, although on main road, has no prospect other than residential, hence it was renewed.

I do feel it is luck based, and cannot just dismissed. Dun listen sales too much, gauge your feeling about the place.

No difference. It can be renewed. I see many rich people buy leasehold semi d and bangalow happily.

I see many freehold poperty size much smaller compare to leasehold and it is cheaper. You have to look at workmanship too.

I think property company is using freehold as a marketing tool, and people thought "free"hold means you are own it and "lease"hold means you lease it, actual fact both you own it.

Yes especially now under state of emergency government have the right to possession of your property

Compensation or not it will depends whether they are willing to pay is also another story as it can be lower than market

Buying property number 1 is location, location and location and the follow by purpose to monetise, build and only land titles comes in next

In fact buying leasehold can be as cheaper as 30% or more

The only question you have to ask will the banks willing to loan you money the buy the property unless you have the means buy it outright as cash borrowings

I once bought a leasehold landed from developer in the 80s. When I sold the house a few years later, it took more than a year to get the state consent for the title transfer and get my money. I don't know if the situation has improved since then.

When it comes to Msian property, location and target market matters more than whether leasehold/freehold because

1) gahmen can easily tell you to give up FH land if they really wanted it, under LAA 1960 https://www.mondaq.com/landlord-tenant--lea...20of%20Malaysia.
2) most leasehold is at around 99 years, except in Sarawak usually they do 60 years because 99 years got higher premium, but renewal is usually easy because most properties are built on land that's deemed as useful only for residential laugh.gif so unless you're an immortal vampire it's unlikely you'd have issues with leasehold expiry in your lifetime

always go for freehold if money is not an issue, but only applicable to same or similar location.

Don't compare the FH kampung area to LH town area.
Or compare the FH properties with no/less amenities nearby, to LH properties but near to amenities

Location is more important than LH or FH

Right location LH appreciate more than FH area that nobody wants.

LH with 99years has too long tenure to be worried about.

30 years later also don't know what will happen on that area, don't need to worry 99 years later.

99 years later, we also no longer here.

Also not to forget the state is not obligated to renew even if you have money. And the state is not obligated to compensate you after the lease has expired. If the owner has a say then might as well make it freehold. The notion of leasehold means the state has the final say. Not you.

Just imagine you go lease a car from BMW. After 1 year must they compensate you if they wanna take back? Can you stop force them to renew? Remember it's a lease.

As for freehold, they can take your land but they must compensate for taking over your land.

If I am TS, I will buy only freehold. And go condo freehold if you must buy in good location but landed expensive. Never buy freehold in bad location.

If you do buy leasehold, remember to dispose the property after 25 years and upgrade to freehold. Because there are many in Malaysia who still believe lease guaranteed can be renewed. When 99 lease expired their kids will cry father cry mother "PA ma, I thought you said can renew this double story Kota Damansara house wan? Why? Why did you leave me with nothing?"

FH or LH, govt needs to compensate if they want to acquire your land for public purposes. Your statement sounds like the govt will not compensate LH owners. As long as the lease still active, the owner has right to be compensated. The LH period will usually outlast us. So, you will not see the day the govt wants to take back your land.

Your statement is right that if the government takes your land when the lease is active, then you should be compensated. But many think that when the lease expires the government must compensate them still. That is a very careless thought.

My kids? Hmmm. I don't know what should I leave them yet. But whatever the decision is, why get a lease just for 10% discount?

Actually I won't want my kids to be spoilt. But even if my kids are capable of handling their finances well, why should I get a land only to lose it 99 years later? If I leave it to my financially literate kids, maybe they can put the land to better use. That's better than losing the land so that some 2 ringgit shell company can buy it for cheap.

Well. It also depends on that particular area.

If the area you want to live in is 100% leasehold, then you have no choice. Likewise, in future, people who love living in this area also has no choice but to buy leasehold property also.

But if that area has both freehold and leasehold, then perhaps it is wise to select freehold if price range is not too much.

For high rise, it is the land underneath matters most.

For leasehold landed, individual owner can apply to renew the lease.

Whereas for high rise, I guess you need to get agreement from all unit owners before you can renew the lease. If one owner does not agree, then cannot proceed. Anyone can clarify this?

In that case, a 60 years old high rise condo can only wait for developers to acquire the whole condo, demolish it and rebuild another new high rise?

if your condo located at a strategic location, it is possible, if not very hard to get developer to acquire.

If the old high rise really dangerous and might affecting surrounding building, government might just demolish it for safety purpose with minimum compensation

If you go to PJ old town, you see a lot of vacant bungalows and houses. The reason is most of those houses owner have moved out but the house is not desirable in the market as it is at the very end of the lease. It will depreciate a lot for the buyer.

The renewal rate is between RM60k-250k.

That means if you buy the bungalow at RM1.8mil, you need to add say RM150k cash for renewing the lease within 10 years.

The actual house own value will be RM1.8mil + RM150k* + (time u own the house x 5% of RM150k)**.

*if you borrow the RM150k, then you also need to add interest from the loan.
**Rough way to calculate the loss of gain from interest.

Also, the paper value of the house is RM1.8mil, the bank will only borrow you 1.8Mil at max (which is not likely at all...).

No one who understands this will want to pay ~RM2mil to stay in an RM1.8mil house since there is a lot of property supply in msia...

For high rise, it is the land underneath matters most.

For leasehold landed, individual owner can apply to renew the lease.

Whereas for high rise, I guess you need to get agreement from all unit owners before you can renew the lease. If one owner does not agree, then cannot proceed. Anyone can clarify this?
*
Normally is a strata title. The title is held by a legally appointed representative body. If the owner does not pay, he can be sue and need to pay all interest because he already agrees with the term during purchase.

Does that mean if you do get the approval to renew your lease, you have to pay at least 2 mil for it?

You pay RM2mil from your pocket.
RM1.8 for house and ~RM200k (If you calculate in detail, it might higher) for leasing fee.
Generally, gov allow lease renewal with no issue.

It is also an issue if you want to sell. You have to wait the appreciation of RM200k + the normal loan interest and fee to avoid lost.

Thanks interesting to know that after 'owning' the house for 99 years you have to repurchase it when renewing the lease. I thought it is just extending the lease without paying for the house value again.

I don't know that what the guy before me said. Anyway I did a little more research. There are many links saying renewal in Selangor is just 1k as you've shared. But then there is this

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&...5oWaWpQ3C4Pi2pn

"Keep in mind that the calculation of the premium rate as mentioned above is for the land itself. It does not include the building constructed on the land. "

Can anyone confirm if during renewal the building has its own premium to pay as well?

IF renewal is approved. I can't deny that knowing the renewal is that cheap in Selangor has to a certain extent shed some positive light on leasehold properties, but if you read carefully, if the lease is not renewed or the renewal is rejected, the land is returned to the state automatically.

Also, I am not surprised with the state of things in Malaysia, this 1k thing can be uturned.

In law yes, if authorities refuse to renew they can take back the land. In history never happen before

I think what they meant was the value of building is disregarded ... only market value of land is taken into consideration ... the buildings no need to pay anything to renew one because the law does not care if there is a building on the land or not

But if u extend the leasehold by paying RM1k, you cannot sell the properties, only can stay there or rent out... there’s a caveat on the land, if u want to sell, u still need to pay full premium ...

Just only that, no other description listed.
This adds another hassle when you need to get approval from the KL land office if you want to sell/transfer title.
When you guys are prospecting freehold props, do keep an eye out for this clause.

As a property investor with more than 10 landed properties over a period of more than 20 years time frame.
I would say the location, concept, and township potential are more important than leasehold/freehold.
I own both leasehold and freehold landed properties.
I can affirm that some of my leasehold properties yield better returns ( rental and capital appreciations) than my freehold landed properties.

Developers nowadays are putting a premium pricing on their freehold properties compared to leasehold properties.

One example, a freehold landed property I was considering is priced 200k-300k more than a similar size (built up and land size) leasehold landed property.
One has to pay extra 200k-300k money to get a freehold property. On top of that, not to forget, with a bigger loan is more interest payment. A 300k more loan principal could cost an average 12k per annum worth of interest payment (assumption interest rate is 4%)

At the end of it, I went with the leasehold property because I feel the area the leasehold property is located has a greater long-term potential.
The cost of renewing the lease in Selangor is $1k (if ones plan to continue to stay or pass on the next generation). If one plan to sell after 10-30 years, there is always an option to renew the land lease back to 99 years. One only needs to pay the number of years difference between 99 years - remaining years left on the lease. (don't need to pay the full 99 years lease premium) . The land lease renewal premium is much lower compared to the premium price and its corresponding interest of a freehold property.
So the choice is between paying the freehold premium price upfront + interest vs land lease renewal premium if and when one decides to sell.
If the property is mainly for own stay and passing on to next generation, no need to worry so much about the land lease premium lah (to be honest)

My advise to folks, just buy a property that you like and can afford.
Leasehold vs freehold is not the be-all end-all. Location and township potential are more important.

Just add on something quick. When you buy a leasehold property, do take note. 99 years do not mean you have 99 years after VP. Sometimes you get only 90 years because the developer takes 9 years to plan, sell, build and transfer to you. Do note the title or SPA state how many years left. Normally will have expiry date.

Also do take note for renewal typically different states got different rules on that. Yes leasehold typically should be 20 to 30% or more cheaper than freehold for similar projects.

Is it feasible to buy commercial leasehold individual shoplot? From what i have checked with land office, the premium to renew is 75% of market value of the land as compared to the residential leasehold which is 25% of market value of the land. (as per guideline in Selangor State Government)

If we bought leasehold shoplot at RM2 mil now, Assuming after 30 years, the market value of shoplot is RM6 mil and the market value of land is RM3 mil (assume half of market value of the shoplot).

If we extend it for 30 years back to it original 99 years, the premium we need to pay is almost RM477k (calculated based on formula : 75% x RM3 mil / 99 years x 30 years [no of extension years] x 70% [assuming we have discount 30% if we made full payment in lump sum])

If we divide RM477,000 / 30 years, it gives premium of RM15,900 per year or RM1,325 per month.

Basically, if leasehold commercial land is appreciate more, the more premium we need to pay.

If my calculation is not correct, please do comments

If we divide RM477,000 / 30 years, it gives premium of RM15,900 per year or RM1,325 per month.

Basically, if leasehold commercial land is appreciate more, the more premium we need to pay.

If my calculation is not correct, please do comments

gomen policy could change; discount may not be available e.g umno regime.

leasehold does not matters for commercial . 15 years is more than enough to pay off the investment + interest. Rest is just pure profit the longer you can hold. If flipping also concern more if the bull comes or not. Resident is the opposite. After 15 years occupation, value at most holding inflation, let alone growth. Even bull comes also lags freehold when comes to margin.

I will think leasehold commercial will affect more our 2nd or 3th successor (let says after 60-70 years) as the lease may less than 30 years when the property transferred to them...There is big money to pay for the extension..

It also depends if you purchase the leasehold commercial, the pricing is really cheaper compare to surrounding freehold and also the location also an important...

Leasehold, if not mistaken, there are option that you do not need to pay premium now to extend the lease, only need to profit sharing with the state govt/local council upon selling.

As for leasehold commercial, if its decent location and generating rental profit stably, there are no need to sell it, hence leasehold, in most cases, make more sense for commercial rather then residential.

Residential is for ppl to live, you might want to sell it in 30/40 years due to the condition of the property....for commercial, no matter what the condition, if its at right place/right sizes, its always got demand.

Is true we dun need to sell it for leasehold commercial for decent location and good rental, just there is still a big money to pay to extend the lease when it expires...of course as what I say it only affect our 2nd or 3rd successor after 60-70 years..

Of course this is up to personal choice because some may not think too far as future is very hard to predict.....But based on current law and policy, there is disadvantage of leasehold commercial as compared with freehold commercial in long term

You missed my 1st paragraph. There are option to extend the lease without paying any $$, its by profit sharing with the govt when you sell the property.... Technically you do no need to outlay any$$ to extend the lease.

But of course the actual procedure might varies, and might have many restriction therefore this is just for education purposes lol

Noted. Do you know how much profit sharing they offered?

Btw, I would think if we sell the leasehold commercial with short lease left, the market value wont be high as the buyer will factor in the extension premium and they must buy in cash as the bank won't finance leasehold less than 30 years. This will affect the selling price. Just my opinion.

Went to land office last year. I learned that it is possible to renew the lease at minimal fee but we cannot sell it, good for own stay. When you want to sell it after that then need to pay according to market price including the years that you enjoyed the minimal fee.

Also, sometimes land office have special promotion (lower rate..etc). The only problem is they don't advertise it.

From what I have checked they normally give 30% on the lump sum payment...It means also they offer instalment but I no sure as I didn't ask more details on how long the instalment...

If you comparing apple to apple, that means same location, of course FH always better than LH , but FH need to pay extra premium on top of the selling price, worth it or not is very subjective to different group of people.

If compare apple and orange , both different location is not about the FH and LH only , it will more to comparing the town planning, amenities, public transportation, and population etc.

Conclusion, LH property is not a monster, you can buy it after you done the study on this property.

Yes...most new launched landed and commercial in klang valley is leasehold... if we still want freehold landed and commercial, we can only look for subsale...On the pricing, the commercial is future price which is super crazy...

well you can argue about freehold > leasehold all day and at the end of the day you can't buy anything because you are waiting for the perfect freehold property. ]

Demography change over decades. street or area popular or in demand now, may not be in 20 or 30 years time.

so called "profit sharing" also mean need to pay higher premium later.

The higher the rental, the higher premium for lease extension.

For high rise, leasehold new launch is often more expensive than freehold subsale.

you are assuming the land cost more than 50% of the purchase price.

Realistically the price difference will not be too much, 10-20% tops

mount kiara condo leasehold vs freehold did differ almost to 50%.

but then if the landed leasehold is just 10%-20 cheaper than definitely not worth it at all. You migh having hard time selling it with a higher price

The thing is developers have pretty much forced buyers to accept leasehold and high dense as the new norm. This is particularly true for high rise and it’s been a very short time frame to push all these as the new reality. They acquire the land cheaper and absorb all the cost savings as profit. You may not think it’s a big deal when buying due to perceived cost saving but certainly your ability to dispose of the property later is going to be an issue.

Those new shoplot by big developer in new township are now mostly under leasehold title, as what they say is to make the price more affordable for investor to buy. However, this is not really true as the psf of this leasehold is even higher than subsale price in mature area. Higher rental need to get for cover the instalment payment.

There is also a high competition to get tenant on vacant possession as there is many unit vacant possession at the same time in same locality and the moving into the new township is taking time. Investor may need strong holding power to get return in future

If you buy sub-sale, there is plenty of choice in KL/PJ, both freehold and leasehold. Thing is many folks dont have money to buy subsale.

subsale landed?

30 years old landed basically you have to rebuild the whole thing to be liveable.

And not many people have that amount of cash

Yes. Its not between freehold vs leasehold btw, it an old vs new issue. For projects far away, both freehold and leasehold are also expensive. Might as well get freehold
