Malaysia has some of the most liberal regulation in the region when it comes to foreigners buying residential property, particularly landed homes.

The latest decision, by the Federal Government (October 2013), was to raise the minimum property price RM 1 million,effective 1 January 2014. Many foreigners do not know that property is actually a State matter, which means individual States have the power to overrule the Federal policies.



Although the Federal Government passes national regulations, the States have the option of implementing these or notwhen it comes to property matters. One example is setting the minimum price at which foreigners can buy property, where the Federal Government raised the price and initially some States chose not to follow.
