Re: Tenancy agreements/leases and your rights as a tenant

My neighbor feedback to HDB that their pipes has serious stains. Guess what, it's the same issue as yours, and the source came from my end as i am staying above. To cut whole story short, we split the cost of waterproofing with subsidies, less than $300. I think for private estates, you have to tak...

Re: Renew COE or buy new car

What is going to happen to the PARF rebate if one would like to extend the COE for 5y only? You lose it. No matter how long you decided to keep the car, even if you deregister it 1 year into the 5 years of the renewal, you will get the pro rated COE but lose the PARF. Sent from my SM-G955F using Ta...

Re: Renew COE or buy new car

I did the calculations lots of time in my mind, there is no justification of buying a new car (Unless you really want to) compared to renewing a COE. New cars breakdown as well, and you might be switching to a car where parts are a lot more expensive than the one you have now, or even a less reliabl...

I think you've over estimated... can easily do it under $50SGD as well.

Re: Tenancy agreements/leases and your rights as a tenant

How your TA defines the means of contact with the LL? There should be a clause saying what is considered to be sufficiently served (notice). I am not sure if you can force anybody to reveal the address of your LL. There are gov services to find that out, but that's one of the reasons I had a TA fal...

Re: Tenancy agreements/leases and your rights as a tenant

You can reach out to the LL, but that most likely will not be met well from LL perspective or his/her agent. What did you sign with your agent? If you had a signed contract with your agent that states you pay commission upon renewal, then you have to pay the agent commission. Your option to renew do...

Re: Independent Financial Advisor

Awesome post strong Eagle! I am not a big fan of REIT's, there is nothing wrong with it, but return wise they are just meh at best. Investment wise, my personal is mutual funds for longterm investment - pretty much all of them are front loaded (meaning you pay an initial percentage from the investme...

Re: Housing in UE Square - River Valley

The condo there is a really nice one, but also on the very expensive side, if your company is paying for it and you can't bank the difference then why not, some nice places around (visiting from time to time) and it is a walking distance to Clarke quay and Robertson Quay, myself i find the place and...
