Rent a Condo

Post by Tuenyi » Thu, 09 Feb 2006 2:59 pm

I will be relocating to SIN. My employment pass is still in process. I'm now looking for a flat.

Can I rent a flat before my EP has been issued? Or I must wait until my EP has been issued?

Most landlords woul require a copy of your employment pass. Therefore, it is best to wait for your EP to be approved.

Thank you for your reply. How about if my company writes me an engagement letter? Can I first produce the engagement letter to the landlord, and after my EP is ready, I'll give the landlard back a copy?
My concern is -- is it restricted by law, or can be negotiated between the landlord and tenant?

The onus is on the owner of the apartment to ensure that thye rnter is hre in Singapore legally - how they do or see that is up to the indivdual - I believe most err on the side of caution.

EP applications/approvals are quite speedy, you shouldn't have to wait too long.
