Abstract

The Malay community in the suburbs of Hulu Langat district has been under pressure from urban sprawl as a result of the development of Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan that has exceeded its borders. The phenomenon of urban sprawl has been a debate among the academics and researchers that touches on various issues including its impact on the surge in property prices and property ownership of the Malay suburban community. This paper aims to discuss the ownership of property among the Malays suburban community in the Hulu Langat district nowadays. Thus, the current position of the Malays ownership of real estate in that district can be ensured and the expectations are placed on the ownership of their property after the occurrence of a surge in property prices. The results are part of the field study involving 400 respondents in Hulu Langat district, Selangor. The study has found that 83 percent of the Malays possess their own properties in the shape of a residential housing for not more than a unit. This shows that the Malays own the properties as part of their basic needs only. The increasing property price makes it difficult for the survival of the Malays suburbs to buy and own new assets.This situation becomes more difficult to those who do not own a property yet in the suburbs. In conclusion, the process of urbanization as a result from the urban sprawl has boosted property values. Ironically, ownership of real estates in the suburbs among the Malays are still at a minimum basis. Rising property prices will complicate the efforts of the Malays to buy new properties. It is expected that the Malays who cannot continue their survival at the fringe of the city will go out and buy property in another place.
