Private Residential Tenants affected financially due to Covid19

Post by danielleleilalu » Mon, 06 Apr 2020 12:53 pm

Hi All,

I hope everyone is safe.

I'm an expat living in Singapore since 2015, my bf and I stay together in a Master Room and he is affected financially due to covid19. His pay is cut and I may soon face the same.

We asked our landlord if he can give us a discount or some help in these hard times but he want to evict us without one month notice.

We are wondering if that is too much to ask from the landlord and if this worsen, who should we contact to ask help/advice?

Appreciate your time reading this.

I don't believe there is any help available for you in Singapore. You may both need to consider moving home. The govt will not be supporting either of you at the cost of supporting citizens and I suspect any support available to employers will be very strictly ring-fenced from supporting foreign (and possibly even PR) workers and mostly very limited.

We are in the most difficult crisis most of us have seen in our lifetimes. I hope you and your boyfriend are from the same country or at least can live in the same country in the future.

(FYI Personally I think your LL is making a mistake - he may not find a replacement tenant at all).
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

I doubt your LL will be able to find a replacement Tenant after evicting you, perhaps you should highlight to the LL the obvious.
