Malaysia Tenancy Agreement Stamp Duty Fee Calculation

After getting your property paperwork sorted out and the daunting task of completing your renovation, investment buyers will quickly seek to collect rental from the property. Attracting and screening for a good tenant is not easy and it also boils down to luck.

I assume you already have already installed DD-WRT on your router. If not, you can read my guide here on how to do so.
