Why do you ask Wilson01?
My advise is to get your organisation to assist you getting a accommodation. If you've to takecare it yourself, there a lot of agency here that can assist you , of course there are fee involved. Most important you look around when you arrive here and go viewing before you decide. There are choice of tenancy e.g 1 year , 2 years, there are the common tenancy here. If you want to have a shorter tenancy, it is a bit hard to get and sometime it may not be your ideal location. I hope this information help.
Arrived in Singapore a couple of weeks ago, had problems finding a place however, we did get a lovely place. The only problem appears to be the Landlord!!!
Is it normal/legal despite a LOI and contract signing that they can basically refuse to provide items which are in the lease to provide?
It appears that the Landlord is making their own rules as they go along, eg the lease/LOI is not on headed paper, refusing to repair or replace faulty items!!
I am tempted to go to the embassy or speak to the MOH as they recruited me to see exactly where I stand legally.
We did use an agent although they appear to be as much use as.............
Anybody else had similar experiences??
