Curtains and Blinds - are they included?

Post by queenie71 » Wed, 10 Jun 2009 1:15 pm

Hi there

just wondering what the norm is for housing rentals in Singapore.

When we took our apt in HKG we had to have all window dressings made ourselves and cost a small fortune. General trend?

If have to get made, any good recommendations?
Trying to factor into the cost of the move.

Thanks

Not sure about everyone else, but every place we looked at curtains/window finishes were included. However, this might just be that we specified this request of our agent.

I am sure others here will be able to qualify. HTH, Mr. P

not always the case in HK - just like in singapore. most apartments/houses usually already have curtains/blinds, but if you are moving into a brand new apartment, and you see no blinds/curtains, do ask the agent/landlord if these will be included. it's a tenant's market, so you should be able to get it included without you having to pay for it. just ask, and perhaps you can even choose what type of blinds/curtains!

but do remember you have to get the curtains dry-cleaned before handing the keys back to landlord when lease is up.
