hi there...

no owner means that the owner of the place doesnt live in. in sum rent, the owner live in the place, along with the tenants

hope it helps... :)

cheers,

lista

It means (or at least implies) that they're selling the car because they have to, not because the car is a horrible lemon. This I've seen all over the world though, not just Singapore...
