Importance of Tenancy Agreement & Stamping

A tenancy agreement is a printed document that states all the terms and conditions where the tenants and landlords have agreed upon before the tenant moves in.

It is very crucial for property for lease in order to protect the landlords and tenants. For example, by clearly having a tenant responsibilities list that states all payable charges, such as water, electricity and sewerage charge the tenant needs to pay, the landlord is then lifted from bearing any legal responsibility regarding these charges.

To legitimize a tenancy agreement, it is important to note that both landlords and tenants must sign it. After which, the tenancy agreement is required to be stamped by LHDN for it to be legal in court. A tenancy agreement stamp duty, which is a form of taxes placed by the government on legal documents will have to be paid to finalize a tenancy agreement before a rental can happen.

Normally, there are two copies of the tenancy agreement, one copy for the landlord and another one for the tenant. Both of the copies have to be stamped by LHDN before the process of moving into a new property occurs. The Malaysia Inland Revenue Authority, also known as “Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia”, LHDN Malaysia is where you pay your stamp duty and may get stamping on your tenancy agreements done.
