Block 93, units FF-02 above 7 floors face the Singapore River (canal) and a new condo construction as at Nov 2002. Blk 93 faces the pool.  One concern of an Australian expat with 2 toddlers is that they may crash through the glass of the high windows of the bedrooms since they don't have the "grilles" to give visual blocks to the hyperactive ones.  However, the condo is almost 100% occupied as at Nov 2002.

The maid's room is sufficient for one bed. The closet will have to be outside. One store room in the living area.  A powder room even for the smaller 3-bedroom which means there are 4 bathrooms, including the maid's.

Black granite counter top for common bathroom.  Rich brown marble top for master bathroom make this condo look classy.

Case study. A German War?

"What's wrong with the Landlord?  He also wore his shoes into the apartment".

The Landlord had written to the German tenant of The Bayshore that he wore shoes inside the apartment and that he would responsible for the same condition of the flooring as he had at the commencement of tenancy.

This note from the Landlord did not mean much to the German tenant.  What the Landlord meant was that the marble flooring would be scratched as the Tenant wears his shoes inside the apartment.

To the Caucasians, wearing shoes inside the apartment is part of their culture. 

"Doe he want a war?" asked the Tenant who is actually a reasonable man, first time working in Singapore and therefore still unsure of the customs and practices.

"I am prepared for litigation at the end of tenancy. 

I am having witnesses which include me, the realtor,  to testify for him that the Landlord  also wore shoes".

If the Landlord-Tenant relationship was good,  the German tenant would have responded positively.  The Tenant has "in-house" shoes. 

In my observation, the marble flooring will fade after 2 years of tenancy and may need another polish to maintain it.  Caucasians wear shoes into their apartments as part of their culture.  

Japanese tenants do wear slippers inside the house.  Singaporeans of various races keep their footwear outside the house.

"Little things" irritate, but it will be good to establish a good Landlord-Tenant relationship and forget about how good your previous Japanese tenant was.

Get to know your new tenant.  Don't hide behind the past.  Live for the future and you can be happy as you want to be.  Be glad that your unit has a tenant in this massive glut of investment condos.

No two tenants are alike.  It is better to have a shoe-wearing tenant rather than a vacant investment condo.
