If you rent one room in a bigger apartment, obviously the rest is shared with other people.flo2323 wrote:- Ok, if people talk about common or master rooms (sometimes with a bathroom attached), they always talk about shared living? This means I rent a room and share the rest of the appartment with others?
A Condo or private apartment usually (but not always) has extra facilities.
Studio or one-bedroom units are rare and don't cost less than bigger units. All apartments here are designed for families living together, but of course you can rent a whole unit for yourself, if you have the money (not below S$2000/month) and can commit to a two-year contract - very few landlords accept a one-year contract for a whole unit, and none below that.flo2323 wrote:- Renting a small apartment to live alone seems to be impossible?!? There are so-called "HDB" flats but these are also designed for shared living. Renting one complete unit does not seem to be an option for expats and prohibited.
My question: Is there any possiblity to get a small apartment on my own? Let's say one bedroom and bathroom? I don't need more. How much rent do I have to expect?
This very much depends on the landlord or the people you are sharing the apartment with. Just ask before renting!flo2323 wrote:One more question: The problem I have with shared living is the following: During my stay in Singapore, there are a few friends that might want to visit me including my girlfriend? If I would just rent a room in a shared appartment, it would not really be possible to have guests? Or am I wrong? Let's say my girlfriend wants to stay for two weeks, I don't think the others would agree with that.
