Generally you need to complete the term. Read your TA, it will detail any options you may have.

Dear Parikh (pardon me if I wrote your name wrongly),

As with any Tenancy Agreement (TA) with landlord/agency, there is a diplomatic cause written. I believe you are renting a whole unit of a private property?

Do check on the clause I have mentioned above - This is to safeguard those who lost their employment or being transferred out of Singapore permanently in the midst of the tenancy period - document has to be produced as proof of evidence, subjected to a minimum XX amount of stay.

There could be an agreed penalty between your good self and landlord for early termination.

Have a good day!

It depends on your tenancy agreement.

But sometime, may be you can discuss with your landlord about it.

Dear Deadrick (pardon me if I wrote your name wrongly), no it's not "as with any" as not all T & A's have Diplomatic Clauses in them. In fact most do not unless you demand it.

as you, being a realtor, already know... the diplomatic clause is not an exit clause for the tenant to "change the house now."

there is usually no such thing as an agreed penalty between the tenant and the landlord, just as much as the landlord can possibly squeeze out of the tenant. generally, anyway.

18 months is 6 away from 24. i suggest the OP rides it out... and get back as much of the deposit as possible. unless he has some unusual reasons that compels him to move (excessively high rent, etc), of course.
