Being a tenant, you are expected to pay rent on time and if you failed to do so, the landlord has the right to issue an eviction notice to remove the tenant from their property.
However, a TikTok user recently got herself into trouble after she accused the police of being corrupt and is working with the landlord to chase her out from the rented premise.
According to Utusan, Shah Alam police chief Assistant Commissioner Baharudin Mat Taib said the woman only made such claims out of dissatisfaction.
The video was recorded and shared on TikTok after the woman was evicted from her rented house at Pangsapuri Sri Alam in Shah Alam.
In her video, the woman can be heard warning the public to be careful when looking to rent a home.
She also claimed that landlords could not be trusted, and police would make arbitrary arrests.
The woman said she had defaulted only a month in rental but the landlord had already called for the police to remove her from the premise.
She added that the landlord had also violated the tenancy agreement in increasing the rent.
“I only managed to save the Samsung TV, the other complainant’s mother took everything else. Now I sleep in the car.” she said.
Meanwhile, Baharudin said the police investigation found that the landlord had lodged a police report because the suspect refused to leave the house.
He said the landlord had asked the police for assistance as the tenant refused to move out after being given two months to do so.
Baharudin added that the police will be tracking down the woman and asked the public to channel information to the police by contacting Inspector Hazimah, who is the Investigating Officer, at 03-5520 2222.
The case is being investigated under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act.
