Hello, I am a student at Nus. My landlord and I made an oral agreement in an hdb apartment in April 2016, now my landlord rented the apartment to another family in a single room and he lives with his family in another room and he too caused me problems with different business, which did not allow me to read and not even be able to read, for myself as a lady from the other family of tenants is always busy cooking and all tenants including the owner share a shared kitchen. Now, on May 7, 2016, I informed my landlord that I was going to leave the room on June 9, 2016, which I believe is completely legal to inform the landlord 30 days in advance, regardless of whether we do not have a written agreement or termination clause. I plan, June 9, but my landlord says he will deduct 9 days of rent from the deposit. I also filed a complaint about this with HDB in SINGAPORE. Please give me some light on this issue, what else can I do? Hello Adam, I would like to know if the lease was signed, if the deposit and the first month of rent were paid, but the apartment was not ready for the start of the rental. Hello. I would like to ask you if the landlord has the right or can he request the rental of the remaining rental period in a room contract? Due to certain circumstances, and I have to terminate my lease prematurely. I agreed to find a replacement for my landlord, but he told me that although a new tenant is found, my deposit is still in ruins. In addition, my landlord said that I had to compensate him for his loss of income if there was no replacement tenant. It`s true? But in the rental agreement, there is no such clause that mentions “payment instead” in case of early termination.
There is only one clause that says: “Both tenants and landlords can terminate 1 month for the early termination of the lease after a minimum occupancy of 12 months. In this case, the deposit is refunded minus any damage caused by the tenant. What does that mean? But does this clause make sense? I think this should be an early termination clause, but the landlord took a minute of 12 months (which is exactly the duration of the rental). Please call me. The crack on the solid surface is not under the damage of the furniture, but under the term “wear”. Maybe you`d like to read our article here, www.99.co/blog/singapore/wear-tear-rentals/ to learn more. What will happen if your lease does not contain these clauses or if you are in a difficult situation to terminate your lease before it expires? So, what are your possibilities? As a general rule, the lease must be signed in the presence of the lessor and the tenant with the broker (if applicable). In this case where the lessor is abroad, the lease should be signed by him and returned first with his signature before confirming it in order to eliminate any misunderstanding.. . . .
