I'm trying to get a move down to Singapore and back into the banking game. Now I don't expect top draw salaries straight off and as all costs will likely be coming from my pocket, I need some help with the numbers.
At the moment I'm going to commute for meetings from Bangkok (I live in Thailand) and stay in hotels. Anyone know a good deal on a reasonable hotel please let me know.
If I get a hire or I need to network, then I will need accommodation ASAP. Hotels can fulfill that immediate need but what about my own place ?
I've read back a few pages on here and some of the local "laws
or rules are similar to Tokyo (read rip off). What is this rubbish about the tenant paying commission for the landlord renting out a property
? Do people really put up with that and is it actually law or just another scam ?
What about deposits ? Who holds them and what happens if Mr Landlord decides the scratch on the kitchen table costs USD 10k to fix ?
How usual is sharing here ? I see some ads but the price of accommodation seems to tell me that sharing would be the only option for many - no ?
Where's the best place to live not too far away from the banks and not too expensive ?
Chuck up anything please and I'll do some more looking but old info is dead. Thanks.
