    The three laws of Kelonguni:

    Where there is kelong, there is guni.
    No kelong no guni.
    More kelong = more guni.

    That's why the logic of the new ruling seemed a bit flawed...

    Should be based on the number of bedrooms, subject to a cap of say 9 pax, similar to those for HDB.

    What if the bedrooms are 3m x 1.5m each and they partition into 30 bedrooms?

    Current ruling is equally flawed! What if they squeeze 6 people into a mickey mouse unit of 200 sqft?

    I think adding another criteria relating min area per person (e.g. min 200 sqft per person) should be more reasonable, subject to a max cap, say 8 (like now).
    In this case, a mickey mouse unit of 300 sqft can only house 1 and not 6 people.........

    That would be an alternative too.

    Though a MM unit should be minimally for 2 person (e.g. a pair of childless couple) lah...

    Anyway, now that there is ruling clarity, we know what we need to do.
    The three laws of Kelonguni:

    Where there is kelong, there is guni.
    No kelong no guni.
    More kelong = more guni.

    MARINE company boss Thavaseelan Kumarasamy rents rooms for his workers in three HDB flats in Boon Lay.

    It is a win-win situation for him and his employees from India. The flats are located near the shipyards in Tuas, where the men work, and are surrounded by amenities.

    Rent is also cheaper. Mr Thavaseelan pays $250 for each worker a month, compared to $300 a month at a purpose-built dorm.

    But this arrangement will end soon. From May 1 next year, non-Malaysian workers from the marine and process sectors, including the chemicals and pharmaceutical sectors, will not be allowed to live in public housing.

    "My workers like their privacy in the flats and I save cost. But I have to move them out soon," said Mr Thavaseelan, general manager of Tech Offshore Marine.

    Other new rules are forcing employers to move their foreign workers to purpose-built dorms.

    Last week, in a circular to building owners and developers, the Urban Redevelopment Authority said it would no longer allow new temporary dorms to be built in 12 industrial estates.

    These were usually converted from old factories and could be used for up to three years. But conditions tended to be cramped and dirty.

    Purpose-built dorms are generally well-maintained and come with amenities, but bosses said the rents would hike their wage bills by 20 per cent, which might be passed on to consumers, said Mr Melvin Ong, director of construction company Fonda Global.

    There are about 700 temporary dorms housing some 100,000 low-skilled foreign workers - a quarter of the 385,000 here who need accommodation.

    Another 200,000 live in purpose-built dormitories. The rest are elsewhere, such as in public housing or temporary quarters on worksites.

    Migrant worker groups have been critical of conditions in factory-converted dorms and support the new plans to house workers in proper dorms. But Migrant Workers' Centre chairman Yeo Guat Kwang said the authorities must continue to enforce standards at all types of housing, including converted dorms.

    Activists warned that some bosses may cut the salaries of workers to offset higher costs and called on the authorities to take action against unscrupulous bosses.

    "Hopefully, after more purpose-built dorms are up and running, competition will keep rents reasonable," said Mr Alex Au, vice-president of Transient Workers Count Too.

    Nine purpose-built dorms will be built over the next two years to add about 100,000 beds.

    http://www.propertyfactsheet.com/for...as-subtenants/

    Foreign workers renting hdb flats must be registered as subtenants before their addresses can be updated in the online foreign worker address service (OFWAS)

    1. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will be making changes to the registration of HDB residential addresses in MOM’s OFWAS, for foreign workers on Work Permits.

    2. With effect from 1 March 2016, employers must first ensure that their foreign workers have been registered as subtenants in HDB’s subletting system, before the workers’ residential addresses can be updated in OFWAS. Real estate agents and their salespersons who are appointed by home owners in the leasing out of HDB premises to foreign workers or are securing HDB premises for foreign workers on behalf of employers are advised to remind their clients to ensure that foreign workers are correctly and promptly registered in the HDB’s subletting system.

    3 MOM would also like to remind all estate agents and their salespersons of the existing regulations (refer to table below). MOM will not hesitate to take enforcement actions, against any employers who fail to register the worker in OFWAS.
