I think you need to emphasis to them that the lease document is not legal or at least doesn't comply with HDB regulations. As such you can offer to draft a new one or better yet come to a mutually acceptable parting of ways.pickard100 wrote:The agent is related to the land lord
Well in this case I think he has a valid point and has some done of his own research.sundaymorningstaple wrote:PNGMK, obviously the OP hasn't read too many of your posts in other threads! LOL
I believe it is illegal to rent, not illegal to sign. This means, it's the LL's problem with HDB but for you it is kind of transparent (you are not a party to HDB). If HDB would come to an action against the LL and you had to vacate the apartment, the LL will be in breach of the TA and need to compensate you for all the damages resulting from this breach. In other words and to make it simple, make them aware of it and propose to discuss the issue with HDB. I believe HDB can and may be pretty happy to penalize such LL.pickard100 wrote:Hi,
I have a dilemma, I recently found that I must move and I do not have a "diplomatic clause" in my lease agreement. After I did some research on the HDB website I found that as a foreigner we are not allowed to sign more than an 18 month lease for HDB. The agent (Landlord agent) never informed me of this and strongly influenced me that the landlord will only take a 2 year lease. Is this lease of 24 months legally binding? Second question: Is this something I can take to the CEA to settle the dispute?
