Are you planning on moving to Kuala Lumpur? You will find that it is one of the most rapidly expanding metropolitan regions in South-East Asia, in both population and economic development. It’s the Capital and largest city in Malaysia. It is also the major business and travel hub for Southeast Asia. Many people from all over the world are drawn here seeking employment and a cheaper cost of living.

The name Kuala Lumpur means “muddy estuary”, derived from its history as a tin mining town in the 1800s. The city has come a long way since then. With excellent shopping facilities, incredible restaurants and a world-class airport. It boasts beautiful architecture and some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world, world-class highways, and a highly efficient subway system.

The Property situation if you are thinking of moving to Kuala Lumpur

Renting or buying a property in Kuala Lumpur is a relatively easy procedure and there are no hidden cultural nuances to hinder the process.

Many people choose to rent homes and rental prices are very reasonable compared to most capital cities across the world. As a guide, a one bedroomed apartment in the city is currently around 2,309 RM (£423) per month. For a one bedroomed apartment out side the city limits, the rental costs are very cheap 1369 RM (£250).

To purchase a property you can expect to pay around 12,680 RM (£2,324) per square meter to buy an apartment in the city centre. Outside the city the price is 6,271 (£1,149).
