Case written in 2002.
The corporate landlord will test your patience to the limit.

1.  "Our lawyer will have to engross the tenancy agreement, not your client's lawyer." said an angry executive of a rental property for the corporate landlord.

2.  "He has not replied in writing to our counter proposals to his amendments dated earlier."

3.  "He gives us a tenancy agreement printed out in his Europe's office, stamped and signed by his Company.  This tenancy agreement has not been engrossed by our lawyers yet."  The  prospective tenant had downloaded via email the tenancy agreement and to expedite matters, had signed and engrossed it first before sending it to Singapore's corporate landlord.  

4. "Tell your client that nothing has been confirmed till we give him the tenancy agreement."  

5.  "If you don't know our procedures, let us deal direct with your client."

"You don't expect us to give you our lawyer's tenancy agreement within 2 days just because your client wants it."

For most expatriates not experienced in the laws of tenancy agreement, "engross" means "to prepare the final hand written or printed text of (an official document).

In this case, the prospective tenant managed to get the tenancy agreement in an email file attachment and had his lawyer in Europe to read through and download the Landlord's counter proposals.  He brought the agreement which had been signed and stamped by his company. 

However, the Singapore corporate Landlord was not interested in this efficient action.   His lawyer would have to engross the tenancy agreement first, then courier it to Europe and then courier it back to meet the deadline.

Nothing is finalized till the tenancy agreement has been signed. Expatriate tenants are often left to wait as long as 8-12 weeks for the corporate Landlord's lawyers and the administrators to produce the final agreement. The bigger the corporate landlord, the more levels of decision makers  that the tenancy agreement with its amendments will need to pass through.

If the prospective tenant email or pressurize the administrator in charge via email or telephone calls, they may get an antagonistic reaction and this may be detrimental to the closure of the case.

The Singapore corporate landlord with one or two exceptions are not nimble (in 2002).

In 2011, many corporate landlords employ more supporting staff and they work hard, sending e-mails, doing open houses and interact with realtors.

The individual landlord can get a tenancy agreement signed within 24 hours and get the tenant, but the corporate landlord has "procedures" and many bureaucratic layers of busy officials who have to approve the lease terms and the lawyers to vet through. 

Letter of Offer. There is firstly, the Letter of Offer from the Landlord.  The "Letter of Intent" submitted by the Realtor is usually ignored but used as a basis by the corporate Landlord to produce the Letter of Offer. This may take a few days.  The private individual landlord may take a few minutes.

Forfeiture of good faith deposit.  One corporate Landlord wants to forfeit the good faith deposit (of one month's rent) if the prospective Tenant disagrees with the term and conditions of the Tenancy Agreement, after signing the Letter of Offer.   No Tenant is going to agree to this when he has not even read the tenancy agreement.  It is a win-lose situation.

The only solution is to submit both together once the terms and conditions of the Tenancy Agreement have been agreed by both parties.  

Bureaucracy.  Whether it is the corporate landlord's lawyers or the executives, but you will need several weeks to finalize a tenancy agreement.  

Usually the "decision maker"  is busy or has gone overseas and therefore is not available to sign the documents.

This delay is a common in most of the Singapore's corporate landlord, disrupting furniture shipping plans. 

It causes so much worries that the apartment may not be leased to the expatriate as the offer to lease from the Landlord is "subject to contract". 

Take it or leave it attitude.  Of course, the process will be faster if the prospective tenant has no objection to any clause in the Landlord's tenancy agreement, but then, the Tenant's lawyers must have their say and amendments too, contributing to the delays.  

In conclusion, it is best for the first-time expatriate tenant to be patient and not to contact the Landlord's administrator direct.  

Work with your realtor.  In most cases, the tenancy agreement will be engrossed by the Landlord's lawyer and the tenant gets his apartment if your human resource manager or lawyer does not throw obstacles or objections in the tenancy agreement.

However, if you really like the unit, be prepared to accept the demand of a 3-months' security deposit instead of 2 months as some corporate landlords will not negotiate on this aspect.  Some corporate landlords even want you to pay their legal fees for the preparation of the tenancy agreement!

I can only recommend that expats have a sense of humour to cope with such a stressful situation or look for other units to rent.

For first-time individual Landlords, it is good news that the corporate Landlord is as slow as the bigger dinosaurs. However, many of his executive officers are very good as some do get a small compensation to close the case in addition to their regular salary.  

One of two corporate landlords are really prompt and therefore, you still have to be nimble and quick to compete with the big boys!
