“The owner had purchased the serviced apartment for rental returns as DC Residensi is part of the Damansara City development which has multiple components including retail mall, hotel and offices. The property is also located within walking distance to the Pusat Damansara MRT (mass rapid transit) station,” she said.
The apartment has been rented to an expat from Italy who chose the unit as it was fully-furnished and has a balcony offering an unobstructed panoramic view of the area. Although the deal was concluded in February, the commencement of the tenancy agreement only began in mid-June due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
“The tenant was in Italy after the agreement was signed but could not return to Malaysia when the country’s borders closed due to the Covid-19 outbreak. However, the owner agreed to extend the commencement date of the rental agreement considering the current circumstances,” Tan said.
