been provided to the people. Under the status quo, the provision of low-cost housing is mandatory in Malaysia. Abdullahi & Aziz (2011) briefly summarizes the multiple levels of government involved in the delivery of low-cost housing: In Malaysia the Federal government provides policy frameworks in general terms. But it is at the state level that the policy is translated into more detailed and strategized. At the state level the policies are expressed in the structure and strategies plans for each state. Finally, at the local government levels the prepared plans are made more detailed with specific requirements elaborations (pp.11). The local administration carried out by the Kuala Lumpur City hall also mandates that housing developers must allocate 30 percent of their total development projects to low-cost housing in order to gain development approval (Shuid 2016). Such an administrative procedure, however, has brought unintended outcomes to the provision of the low-cost housing in Kuala Lumpur. Couple of studies similarly point out that the quality of these low-cost housing tends to be substandard and inadequate as developers merely aim to meet the development’s approval quota (Abdullah, et al. 2017; Sulaiman, et al. 2016). Moreover, it is not only the construction of these affordable housing units that is characterized as having a poor quality, but it is also the maintenance and service of them that do not meet the occupants’ satisfaction. The study by Sulaiman et al. (2016) reveals that the maintaiance of the low-cost housing units tends to halt or even be totally disregarded not only by the local authorities and developers but also by the government-led low-cost housing programs such as the People’s Housing Program or Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR). Such a problem is attributed to the fact that the government, as recommended by the Malaysian Plan, provides the budget as subsidies to those programs for only five years so, as a result, the local authorities and developers have less incentives to continue to look after the low-cost housing units when the 5-year term ends (ibid). Indeed, there is a time frame or limit of some sort to the governments’ intervention on the housing programs, but the continuous subsidies allocated by the federal government proves to be crucial in the long term delievery of these affordable housing schemes in terms of the financial sustainability (Shuid 2016).
