And if there is a clause there that will make you bankrupt? It may sound absurd but what you mention is over the same line. You enter the contract for a reason. This reason is not to make you bankrupt.
This .. I like. ..
If you want to enter a contract where you require to clean the aircon 5x a day, that's fine, but than the purpose of the contract will be to clean the aircon as of your liking and not make someones life harder as a tenant.
Matter of fact, I had a landlord, who wrote in the contract that the aircon must be serviced 4 times a year, by his appointed contractor. It so happened that there was nobody in one room and the aircon contractor comes and I told him to minus off that unit, and he called the landlord and the landlord reminded me the terms.
I just told him in a nice way, if he wants my money, just say so .. that get into nefarious schemes with a aircon contractor who insists on cleaning an indoor unit, never used .. and I added on, since I had taken my own efforts to put in the 3M A/C Filters, even if it was operating, it wouldn't require 4 cleaning a month ..
And then I also sent him some guidelines from BCA that stated 1 service a year is sufficient.
He wasn't so happy .. and I also told him, his contractor always finds some part need to be replaced, and guess what, the price is just over the 150$ cut off, and I will engage my own Certified contractor, in lieu and sue the previous contractor for cheating me by claiming to replace items .. (I had smartly kept the 'failed' units .. )
Absolute silence followed, and then "you are a difficult tenant .. "
IN all fairness I don't know if the landlord himself was being taken for a ride by his Agent and Aircon Contractor .. most likely it was so
