I don't think that's even legal. Generally, the deposit has to be returned in full (less deductions for repairs, if any) within 14 days. Honestly, I had to be quite strict last time with the agent to get it back in time last time. In your case, I would strongly insist on that 14 day period (after having consulted with CEA possibly).dcw24 wrote:Hi All,
A couple of flatmates and myself are having issues retrieving our securting deposit from the landlord. We have moved out of our last apartment 4 months ago and our landlord hasn't paid a single dollar of our security deposit. When we finally got in contact with the land lord they have said that in our contract it says that they will pay back in installments of 1k over a 6 month period. Is this common in Singapore? Or are they just screwing with us?
Unfortunately, my flatmate has lost our contract so we don't know if this was in fact in our contract. We have asked them to provide the contract but have yet to receive anything.
Any assistance with this is greatly appreciated.
