Leasing Unfurnished / Partly Furnished Accomodation

Post by Ozzie2007 » Fri, 08 Dec 2006 12:08 pm

Following on from my last post, I am very keen to find out if there are a good selection of unfurnished or partly furnished (refrigerator & washing machine) apartments, condos, etc available in the market.
My budget is S$3,000 but will go a little higher for a good home. Most of the listings on this site are fully furnished in this price bracket, with only the really expensive places unfurnished (S6,000+).
Is this the trend? From the pictures I see and past experience in other countries, the landlord supplied furniture is cheap, used, beds uncomfortable or a little used looking, etc.
My employer will pay relocation moving costs and I have all new stuff that is nice and comfortable and not bolt together, so really prefer to bring it over with me.

I really need some urgent advice as I am committing to the Movers at the momemnt and need to ship prior to christmas.

Many Thanks in advance for any input.

I'm sure you could negotiate something. I got a nice place recently within around the same budget and it came partly furnished. I was told that if it is furnished, it is possible to negotiate to have the furniture removed. It's up to the owner though.

When you see and ad that says "p/furnished" just what does the "partly" bit include usually??

I HK and KL where i have been before it is more common to find near empty apartements and condos than just about anything else so of course after being in these two places over the last 12-yrs i have picked up kinda everything i need.

My only concern is if i say "unfunished" then i still get kitchen/bathroom cabinets, a/c units, water heaters etc. since it is common to go to an "unfurnished" place in KL and only have the water pipes etc.

I will impart my newly found knowledge through the guy that helped us here.

most 2 bedroom apts are advertised as furnished, which means it usually comes with kitchen table, chairs, fridge, washing machine(most likely) and kitchen appliances (not necessarily a oven) beds, and sofas etc. being canadian I found that one really odd, we got a place with no oven,,,

And most 3 bedrooms come unfurnished or p/furnished, unfurnished means nothing in them including no appliances, but I think you still get cabinets, and partly furnished means kitchen appliances.

just because it says furnished doesn't mean you have to live with any of the items, but since it is the norm landlords will take away pieces but not likely all of it as when you leave then they will have to refurnish it.

anyway hope that helps, best of luck[/b]

Yeah thanks.

I will look at both the unfurnished and partially furnished units then. Suppose the landlord of partially furnished stuff can remove if i want them to, or i flog off my stuff if mine is not so good. If it is only kitchen appliances then should be easy.
