quitting job/cancelling EP - implications

Post by mslise » Thu, 01 Feb 2007 3:33 pm

Just wondering, if a person quits their job and cancels their EP (which entitles you to a 14 day social visit stamp) does this have any implications on your apartment rental? Ie will/can the authorities notify the landlord? Also, is the 14 days visa from the date of leaving the job or from the date you cancel (ie you get 7 days to cancel)

Basically, my partner is considering leaving his job a month earlier than originally planned. We'd like to stay in singapore for 4-5 weeks longer (keeping the apartment) and do have a trip already planned so that would give us another short term visa. Is this feasible or is our landlord likely to kick us out?

Cheers :D

From the date you cancel the EP, and no, the Garmin is not going to notify your landlord. But most apartment leases in Sg legally require a month or two of notice before they'll let you leave?

What the landlord doesn't know can't hurt him :cool:
