Non-Citizen (NC) Subletting Quota for the Subletting of Flat
With effect from 16 Jan 2014, owners will have to consider the NC quota if one of the subtenants is a non-Malaysian non-citizen (i.e. SPRs and foreigners, excluding Malaysians for both groups). Malaysians will not be subject to the NC subletting quota in view of their close cultural and historical similarities with Singaporeans.
The quota ensures that non-citizens can better integrate into the local community for social cohesion and prevents the formation of foreigner enclaves in public housing estates.
The quota will apply as long as one of the subtenants is a non-Malaysian NC.

How the NC Subletting Quota Works
The NC quota at the neighbourhood and block level is shown in the table below:
Maximum Proportion of Flats that can be Sublet to Non-Malaysian NC Subtenants
Neighbourhood Block
8% 11%
When the NC quota has reached the block and/or neighbourhood limits, flat owners will only be allowed to sublet the flat to Singaporean or Malaysian subtenants.
