    Abstract

    Kawalan sewa sentiasa dikaitkan dengan kesulitan di pihak penyewa dan perlindungan oleh pihak Kerajaan. Penyewa sering digambarkan sebagai pihak yang menderita dan tertakluk kepada kehendak tuan-tuan tanah yang sering pula digambarkan sebagai pemilik-pemilik harta yang tidak prihatin terhadap kebajikan pihak lain kecuali diri sendiri. Di Malaysia, Akta Kawalan Sewa (Pemansuhan) 1997 telah berkuat-kuasa sepenuhnya mulai 1hb Januari 2000 selepas tamatnya tempoh peralihan pada 31hb Disember 1999 setelah beroperasi selama 27 bulan. Pemansuhan tersebut telah diwar-warkan sebagai dasar yang amat dinanti-nantikan, yang akan mengembalikan hak kepada pemilik di mana hak tersebut telah dinafikan selama berdekad lamanya. Rent control has always been associated with hardships on the part of tenants and patrpnage by the Government. Tenants were always portrayed as being a suffering lot who are subject to the whims of the landlords. Landlords, on the other hand, were portrayed as being property owners who has no regard for the welfare of othe:s except his. In Malaysia. the Control of Rent (Repeal) Act 1997 has been in full force since 151 January 2000 after the transitional period expired on 31st December 1999 after being in operation for 27 months prior to the expiry. The repeal has been touted as the much-awaited policy that will return to the owners, rights deprived from him for decades.
