Re: Does the government consider race when granting PR?

Smoulder, sp786, what's your take guys on the issue of self isolation of the Indian diaspora in Singapore? 10 or 15 years ago, what truly shocked me were some Indian colleagues living in Singapore for a couple of years and not being able to use chopsticks or openly refusing to try any other than Ind...

Re: Tenancy Agreement and Stamp Duty Issues.

Thanks for the reply. I have one more scenario and appreciate if anyone can help : my owner is doing amendment directly on the first TA we have signed few months back, changing the payment bank account. He scanned the original TA with only the first page, cross the old account, add new account numb...

Re: Tenancy Agreement and Stamp Duty Issues.

If tenancy agreement amended after stamp, is it still valid? Do owner has to do stamping again? Can owner amend directly on the scanned version of previously stamped tenancy agreement? There are a lots of crossing and signing fields in the amended TA, including payment methods and length of staying...

Re: PR APPLICATION CHANCE- Mixed couple

I think you are a bit too harsh on sp786. His initial statement has some inaccuracies and claims that are perhaps too categorical, but his message as I see it is just not to focus too much on (proving) social interactions because on the individual level this is something hard to prove. Moreover - an...

Re: Does the government consider race when granting PR?

It is surprising how many convert. But it is needed, Singapore born Singaporeans are becoming more and more rare… already less that half the population. I think quite a few would prefer a smaller population here - it’s still crowded, even with no tourists and many staying at home! Are you saying th...

Re: Safe distancing in restaurants

Been reading quite a few cases on restaurants not adhering to safe distance of 1m between patrons. If that happens, and customers get fine, isn't that unfair? Shouldn't restaurants be the one to bear the fines? Does it really happen thta way? I mean, the customers get fined because they followed th...

Re: India v/s Indonesia education system

I think PNGMK is correct with his observation but this articles actually adds to the puzzle. Assuming, the quoted text concerns mostly general education stage (primary/secondary) Indonesia should have an army of perhaps not that well educated people but surely a sufficient pool for the next stages. ...

Re: Landlord Renewed TA but decided to Sell what to do?

I am afraid with the clause 5.7 there is nothing you can do. You should have never signed TA with such clause. You should have a clause stating that any sale of this property is subject to this TA. Unfortunately, there is no specific law regulating TAs and your rights as the tenant. But the agreeme...

Hi, I've been living in the condo for past 4 years and the landlord's agent proposed to renew the TA for another 2 years from 01Sep2021 to 31Aug 2023. I and LL signed it back in February digitally (using PDF sign as LL is in UK) and stamping certificate too was issued. However few days back the age...

Re: Has anyone lived near a graveyard before?

Well the fact that my apartment overlooked a cemetery meant that I was able to get a significant discount on the rent. Long live superstition! We lived for a while in a condo, brand new, first occupants, with the prices like 20% below for that area. All because somebody was murdered in this condo (...
