Re: Budget for Relocating

By renters market, I meant that the vacancy rate for rental units has gone up, while the monthly rentals asked have gone down. You are still going to find landlords who are demanding no longer attainable monthly rents who would rather leave their place vacant than lower the price, but there are many...

Re: Allowed to bring guests over?

Hi. Im currently renting a room. The tenancy agreement is silent as to whether I am allowed to bring overnight guests over. I am wondering what is the default position on this? As I understand in Australia there is a standard supplementary tenancy agreement contract which is effective in event that...

Re: EP cancellation during garden leave

you did not get my point. who said to update the tenancy agreement accordingly to your residency as SVP? I just find the whole rule odd to say the least. After EP cancellation you are issued an SVP for 30 days to either find a new job or leave the country. what if you don't find a job in 30 days bu...

Re: EP cancellation during garden leave

yes but strictly speaking if I am now a different subject, not the same tenant who signed the lease, then the contract shouldn't be invalid? ;) catch no ball. So if you cancelled the pass, you update the contract accordingly to state your residency as SVP ? What are you on ? Go ahead, do what makes...

Re: Counterclaims and other questions

we should not confuse untenantability with liability. this is my 2c: an untenatability clause (through, say, an act of god, or even arson) supposes that the dwelling may prove no longer viable/possible for residence. in this case, sure, determine the tenancy and refund the deposit and balance of th...

But I want to know if we should inform any government agency of me exiting the contract early so i my name is officially removed as the tenant of the property. My new agent told me to put my spouse name as the tenant in...

Re: Visitor/guest charge not mentioned in rental agreement

Hi! Just wanted to see what the consensus was on paying additional rental for short-term(<1week) guests. I live in a shophouse in the west coast area and my brother will be visiting me for just under a week. I've rented out the master bedroom of the shophouse directly from the landlord, who does no...

Re: Leaving singapore without telling landlord

My neighbors here have un-expectantly been laid off and are planning on skipping town without telling the landlord a thing until they are out of the country. Just trying to look out for them - are there any reprocusions to doing something like this (apart from morally)? They seem to have been told ...

Re: Expat Package Proposal for US Exec

JRB, thanks for that, it's helpful. It is interesting that in a weakening market LLs can either stick to their guns more or be more inclined to negotiate. It can cut both ways. Hey it's a pleasure.

Re: Diplomatic clause

Tired of the uniquely Singaporean interpretation of what constitutes a "diplomatic clause," I engaged a lawyer and thought I'd share the following language. It's said that the law is "pro-landlord," but that's only because the same boilerplate lease agreement has been circulatin...
