Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said from May 1, owners of unoccupied shophouses and business premises in Hulu Selangor could apply to the local authority to not pay quit rent until their properties generated income for them.

“The state exco made the decision (to waive quit rent) as many shoplots and business premises owned by investors in Bukit Beruntung and Sentosa, Hulu Selangor, are not generating revenue because there are no tenants.

“Those in that position can apply to the local authority to not pay quit rent.

“The local authority will charge quit rent only after the premises generate income for investors or have tenantshe said here yesterday.

He said the waiver was to reduce the burden of owners who had to pay quit rent of RM5,000 or more every six months depending on the location and size of their premises.
When asked, Khalid denied that the announcement was to win votes for Parti Keadilan Rakyat in the Hulu Selangor by-election.
