If you’re trying to rent a property in Malaysia, more often than not, you would be required to pay a specific amount of rental deposit. Undeniably, renting a property is a much simpler task than buying one. However, that doesn’t mean that you can take rental deposit for granted.

The main purpose of any deposit is to ensure the landlords are well-protected against any potential losses or damages when renting their property. While there is no maximum cap for setting up a deposit, the rental market and type of rental property will directly influence what is considered ‘reasonable’ to charge.
