we did not sign any other document, only 2 copy of same document.
Only stated the 1st year in TA contract regarding the commission fees in the document.
Renewal commission fees do not have the clause on it.

My sis company warehouse rental TA, do have stated the renewal contract for the agent fees.

That's why we take out the document and read on it. Sound fishy with the agent, we deal that agent i not able to find out his CEA registration in CEA website. LL agent i able to find it.


Give CEA a call then and raise your concern, you'll get the best answer from them.


Noted. Appreciate you advice.
May i know the SLA website u provided, select which Category? POI?

Yup, should be the one, I have never used it.
POI:
This provides information on land such as tenure, area, property address and registered ownership as at the date of search.
(NB: It does not include information on instruments pending registration which may affect ownership.)

If this was as simply as checking the above records, the Small Claim Tribunal would rely on it and we know it needs something more convincing. I expect POI is just a registration record and may have nothing to do with the actual address.

yap. POI cant get much details.
if CEA no. from the agent unable to check, means he is not registered to CEA?

Or there is a mistake in the No, but if the agent is not registered, this would be very serious.
Can you look him up using his name? If I remember correctly there was even a phone application for this.
