You should try living in Japan. Typically the flats are much smaller and rent is higher. They also have a traditon that is still going strong where to rent an apartment, you have to pay 2-3 months of deposit, 2-3 months of "Key" money to the landlord which is basically a bribe/incentive for them to allow you to live there, 1 month to the agent who found you the place and then your first months rent. Imagine if you had a rent of 3000SGD. 16,000 just to move in!The agent is engaged by the landlord to find tennats for the property. That's why in all countries I know of, the landlord pays the agent's fee
Is this some kind of joke in Singapore, I've never seen so many unprofessional cowboys in one market before in my life!in this way the agent is responsible within the code of ethics of practice to service you throughout the contract period.
