How to stamp my Tenancy Agreement?

Prepared two copies of Tenancy Agreement and duly signed by both Tenant and Landlord. Go to your nearest Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri office, which is the same place where we submit our income tax.

So far I have been only 3 LHDN offices, namely:

LEVEL 3-10
GENERAL LINE : 04-2552000
FAX : 04-2628406
NO. 20
GENERAL LINE : 04-5487000
FAX : 04-5307024
TEL. AM : 04-4962552/2551
FAKS : 04-4962555

Once you walked in, tell the officer you want to stamp your Tenancy Agreement. A queue ticket will be given with 2 forms.
Fill up the form given, there are:

  1. Two copies of PDS, 49 (A)
  2. One copy of PDS 1 (Pin. 2011)

Once number is called up, you will have to submit the 3 forms with your 2 copies of Tenancy Agreement together.

You will be asking to pay the Stamp Duty according to the Rental rate table. You may pay on the spot. However, for Kulim branch, you will need to buy the stamp Hasil from POS office first before going to Kulim LHDN Office.

Immediately after the stamping fee is paid, the document will passed to another officer just beside it. The officer will checks the document and passes it to a guy who operates a stamping machine.

The whole process could be less than 10 mins to get your tenancy agreement done. So it is pretty simple process. I done this very often.


Below are the samples of the “Stamped” on your Tenancy Agreement.

    I would like to request a copy of the tenancy agreement as well. Thank you! By the way, what can I do to ensure my tenant will pay on time? I am able to impose a penalty to them if their payments are late?

      Normally, before hand over the key to the tenant, the best practice is to go through the Teanncy Agreement. Make sure the tenant know what is exactly in the Tenancy Agreement. In the TA, there is a clause stated penalty will be imposed for late payment. So you just need to ensure that Tenant is responsible to pay on time.

    Hi ,
    Does the landlord himself need to present while getting the stamping done at the LHDN office. Can someone in the family represent the landlord to get stamping done? If family, are in laws included? Does LHDN need a letter of authorization??

  4. TAN

    My tenant wanted to rent the apartment for 2nd year. Should I use the same agreement template like the 1st year or there is another tenancy agreement template for extension of tenancy? Appreciate the advice.

      Dear Tan:

      First question to ask your self is “Is there any term and conditions” change from 1st year to 2nd year?
      If no, then it will be the same.
      Otherwise, you may changed accordingly.

      Hi tracie, it all depends on your agreement with your landloard, and you must aware of why you are doing so.

  18. Clara

    Good info. Just want to find out

    (1) For stamping tenancy agreement that require 2 copies, can one be original signed & the other photocopy of the original signed (for the extra rm10 copy)? If worse case got instance need to submit to court as evidence, one existing original should be enough right?

    (2) Any where published in LHDN rules on this? (No reference from any official guidelines anywhere..even on LHDN website)


  19. Jill

    If my tenant wants to renew the TA and there is no change in the terms and conditions, do I have to prepare a set of new agreement to be stamped for the new period? Can I just issue a letter to renew the tenancy stating the commencement of the new agreement? If yes, do I have to get the letter of renewal stamped? Appreciate your advice.
