Breaking a lease

Post by aggsie » Wed, 11 Oct 2006 3:33 pm

Can anybody give me advice on how one goes about breaking a lease. We moved to a new apartment about 3 months ago and signed a 2 year lease ( with a diplomatic clause). We are not happy in the place and find it much too noisey here. We did all the usual things like visiting at different times of the day etc and all seemed ok but we cannot get used to the traffic noise.

Any advice would be much appreciated :???:

Long and short of it is, unless you're moving out of Singapore for good, you're screwed. Pretty much the only way you can squirm out before the diplomatic lease period hits (~13 months) is to find somebody else who agrees to take over the lease from you.
