But in practice, unless the landlord saw more $$ signs in a new tenant, they will demand that you fulfil the terms of the agreement - i.e. stay put and pay .. as it happened to me when the market was going south and moi was jobless :)


Didn't you have any diplomatic clause in your tenanacy agreement?


errr .. how would that work ?? enlighten me please ..


I was coming from the point of the tenant losing his job and the landlord still asking him to complete the tenancy. But if you're no longer on EP, then agree that this does not apply..

Diplomatic clause is generally meant to only apply if your current company moves you somewhere else. You (in theory) didn't have say in the matter.

But if you have no EP then you have no right to rent private property. That's also a matter in which 'you have no say'.

I can see this issue is complex. For example a person summarily dismissed could (it might be argued) technically have to move out of private accommodation on the same day.

A person taking 2 weeks holiday between jobs would technically have to serve notice to quit their home... ?

But I think some common sense has to prevail. I would have thought if you rented a place while legally resident, then swapping passes, or changing jobs and perhaps being on an SVP for a month should be acceptable.

Just my 2c!

If common sense prevailed, OP (or at least the guy who hijacked the thread) would have waited for his PEP *before* resigning the position that his P1 pass was for :)

I've just resigned from my role and was holding a P1 Pass. If I'm renting an HDB can the landlord force me to leave while I'm waiting for the PEP?

Yes I would agree that from the facts described he seems to have taken something of a leap into the dark. But I was pondering and responding to the issue of whether planned temporary non-res status requires you to move out of private rented property.
