Abstract

Unclaimed inheritance property of Muslims in Malaysia increases each year. The latest valuation of unclaimed inheritance property, comprising of moveable and immoveable properties, is estimated at RM66 billion in the year 2016 compared to RM40 billion in the year 2007. This increase negatively impacts the economy of the individual, society and country, with abundant uneconomical idle inheritance property and mounting arrears of immoveable property tax. The situation is caused by legislative constraints in the administration of property, especially immoveable property, and by negative socio-cultural practice in managing inheritance property from the deceased. The objective of writing this article is to discuss this issue and available forms of solution in dealing with the problem in management of unclaimed inheritance property of Muslims. This research is a qualitative study adopting a library research approach as a method for data collection, as well as descriptive method of data analysis.
