I'm looking for a flat or studio somewhere close-ish (or with convenient public transportation) to Marina Blvd, where I'll be working for the next three months. The cheaper the better. Does anyone know of any good places near there that I should look at for housing?
I hope it's not the same type of entry stamp that tourists get...
On the understanding that everything is legit, you will still not be able to rent for 3 months. 24 is the standard (though there is a "diplomatic clause" you can use that would let you out of the lease after 14 months), 12 months can be difficult to find, 6 mths borderline impossible... and less than that you might as well forget about it.
Be advised, they are all illegal and could bite you in the arse at any time. Even NYC is cracking down on them. It will only be a matter of time before the authorities crack down on this pretty hard.
In Singapore, it is illegal to rent out a property/room for less than 6 months (assuming the renter has some kind of residency). It it illegal to rent anything other than a Serviced Apartment or hotel without a valid residency visa of some sort.
