    Get up to speed on Malaysia's property scene

    SINCE the Malaysian government announced property cooling measures in October, many investors have adopted a more cautious, wait-and-see approach.

    But Mah Sing Group's head of Singapore office, Mr Vincent Tan, wants to reassure Singaporean investors that these measures are good for the market in the long run.

    "We'd like to share our perspectives on these measures and their impact on developers and investors," said Mr Tan, who will also be speaking about transactional costs and processing fees when buying property in Malaysia at the My Paper Advance Series Seminar on Sunday.

    In line with the theme, Strategic Game Plan: Buying Property In Malaysia, he will also give Mah Sing Group's assessment of Malaysia's property market and what are the trends going forward.

    The seminar will also feature Ms Amy Wong, executive vice-president of research and consultancy at CB Richard Ellis Malaysia; Dr Jason Teoh, the director of Henry Butcher Malaysia, Penang; and Mr Richard Oon, the national tax director of TY Teoh International.

    They will speak on why Greater Kuala Lumpur remains a key property hot spot, the Penang property market and the property taxation system in Malaysia, respectively.

    The seminar will be held at the SPH News Centre Auditorium (1000 Toa Payoh North) from 2pm to 5pm.
