The purchase of housing accommodation is generally the most significant financial undertaking by many Malaysians. The decision taken has long-term effect in the form of a big housing loan commitment that the purchaser takes many years to settle. Many even resort to using their EPF savings to cover all or part of the purchase price. It is thus very important for those who have made or are about to make a property purchase to know all their rights and obligations well.
