Without the lease, all rent would disintegrate. Think of it as the backbone that respects the rights and duties of both parties. For more information on rental conditions in Singapore, see our article here (www.99.co/blog/singapore/rental-regulations-in-singapore-a-must-know-guide/). However, given the legal complexity of land ownership, the Civil Act (Cap. 43) provides that the contractual capacity of an 18-year-old would not apply to contracts for the sale, purchase, mortgage, assignment or liquidation of land or lease of land for more than 3 years. The legal age remains 21 years. No, you cannot enter into a normal lease if the rental term (including the renewal option) exceeds 7 years. The agreement must be in the form of an act, otherwise it is default and the deed must be prepared by a lawyer. The maximum rental term (including the renewal option) for a normal lease is 7 years.

Yes, if you look at the lease/written contract, it seems that Singapore prefers the landlord. But when it comes to enforcing the lease, landlords are always at a disadvantage or lose parts. Many times, tenants (mostly foreigners) interrupt the lease, leave the premises prematurely without communicating with the landlord and without having to rent, damage furniture and facilities and leave the premises without repairing damaged objects or cleaning the premises. Owners usually suffered from a silent deposit, which in most cases was insufficient to compensate for losses. It can be more expensive to initiate legal proceedings. In summary, the three aforementioned facts are just a few things to look out for when signing a lease in Singapore. I say that it is not a question of legality, but of respect and grace to give a consensual timeline to stick to it and then chase them away. If I can speak freely, I am indeed a foreign advertisement. But are grace and respect a cherity? Does Singapore really care about the well-being of its expats? We also pay our taxes without error, our contribution to the CPF is also used by the Singapore government and yet we are treated like a bunch of rags.

If there is one word that can describe our dilemma, it will be “unfair.” Other countries have fair practices towards their foreign voters. If there isn`t one here, I`d think about moving out of this place. I know my wife and I are not entitled to it, and it is true.
