I have a question regards to Joint Management Body (JMB)/Joint Management Company (JMC). In my situation, my condo is going to be rented to a restaurant owner whose staff will be staying. In such case, the JMB has stated that the condo rented to company can only be stayed by 3 person which was discussed with the Management Committee sometime end last year.

My points is, we are not notified on this ruling which has not gone through an AGM with such unreasonable number of occupancy. Now, they are asking me as the owner to right a letter stating my rental to this company and that it is occupied only by 3 person with registering their names and providing copy of passport. My question is, can they make such unreasonable rules and can enforce any rules/law on me for this?

If they do not allow my tenant to shift in due to this, what are my options?

You can write a letter to the management stating that they have no authority to ask who you rent to and how many people you like to stay in your own house.
If Management Committee decided that you can only use the toilet once a day then you have to comply?

If they do not allow my tenant to shift in due to this, what are my options?
Don't worry over silly things.  Shift in first.  If got problems, move in as a visitor without big luggage first and slowly move luggage in later.

The Management Company is well aware of such ways and are monitoring this. As I understand there are some guidelines by COB stating 350 cubic feet/person (about 35 sq ft). But it's a bit strange if I have a 1,200 sq feet condo it will work out to about 30 people? 

Could anyone advice on this? Also if there is a house rule and the governing law, so which prevail?

I am not a lawyer.
You just scolded me for recommending Consumers Tribunal yet you still want to ask for my help?

If you are in Sungai Petani, you can try this lawyer

@Unfair

This old post was re-activated for unknown reasons. Your last request was to a specific senior forumer, hence it would be impolite for other juniors to butt into the conversation.

I shall reply to your following request to the best of my knowledge on:

if there is a house rule and the governing law

1. Permanent Governing Law (Immigration Laws)

2. Movement Control Order (MCO) Lockdown Laws

3. Ministry of Health (MOH) Health Laws on the Covid-19 Pandemic

Basic instructional Policies: 
The presence of all foreigners must be reported to (all) relevant agencies.

Note: Not many lawfirms would attempt to challenge the above Laws stated above (based on your criteria/contents asked).
