Normal and Fair wear and tear is the landlord's responsibility - for example paint deterioration over 10 years, slightly scuffed walls and floors and counters, some water spotting in bathroom, mirror fading, curtain fading, blown light bulbs, general aging of the unit...

Re: Terminate Tenancy Agreement

The EP has not yet been approved and issued yet. He has no residency therefore he cannot rent legally. As long as all he holds is the IPA then he is not yet resident (the IPA is good for a maximum of 6 months I believe and if not taken up by then it is withdrawn). You have to be present in Singapor...

Re: Terminate Tenancy Agreement

Tell the agent if he was party to the fraudulent digital signing of the lease without verifying physically the residency of the renter, there is a very good possibility that he will lose his license at the least and possibly be fined as well for knowingly assisting in the commission of a fraudulent...

Re: Terminate Tenancy Agreement

First time in 25 years of HR I've heard of no IPA being issued. Sounds like you have an IPA but just don't know it. You might want to check with your HR Dept to verify that. Bureaucracies & civil servants rarely venture beyond the cast in stone playbook. My bad! I didn't realize IPA is the approval...

Re: Terminate Tenancy Agreement

How long a delay are you looking at? If it's a few weeks suck it up. If it's months or indefinite then inform the rental agent that you don't have legal status to stay in Singapore. It's a HUGE fine for a property to be rented out to someone who is an illegal resident so that should get their atten...
