Summer Accommodation in Singapore

Post by courtneylind » Sun, 23 May 2010 4:35 pm

I was recently offered a summer (mid-June to mid-September) job in Singapore, and I am looking for accommodation for the time I am there. Does anyone know of very cheap places I could look into for this time period? Or of any specific types of accommodations that would be cheaper than others for this amount of time?
Thank you in advance!

for a short period, your options are limited to either Service Apartments or hotels. you might be lucky to find a landlord willing to do a short period rental, but that lucky is as good as winning the jackpot in the casino!

I have answered this question a couple of times already in this forum.

Contrary to the previous poster, there is Short Term Accommodation available (although it usually is shared rather than whole apartment type). The places to look and advertise are the classifieds section of this website (special section for short terms) and other classified sites in Singapore. Web search does the trick nicely...

Good luck

I heard that only holders of PR, EP, WP, student pass (and possibly DP or LTSV?) are allowed to rent residential property. I assume short-timers like the OP come on a visit visa and thus can only "rent" hotel rooms or short-term Serviced Apartments (which cost almost as much as hotels in Singapore).
Can anybody confirm or disprove this?

If the above is correct, and given the fact that the landlord is responsible to ensure his tenants are legal, it is no wonder short-time rentals are rare.

I guess we should assume OP is going to work here legally so he/she will have a work permit and a corresponding pass.
