Maintenance fees?

Post by dpot » Sun, 09 Jan 2011 1:16 am

We are searching for condos in preparation for our move to Singapore in a few months, and want to know whether maintenance fees are typically included in the price, or is that something the landlord takes care of? We want to ensure that we aren't setting our expectations/budget at the wrong level, only to discover that there are hefty monthly or annual costs for upkeep we hadn't factored in. Thanks in advance for your help.

Condos, normally maintenance ( as in building management ) fees are covered by the rent, but some condo have hidden extras like ours we have to pay for car parking for each car. Cost of aircon maintenance is your expense.
