Case Study: How to build good
"I want you to hand over the keys, the cards, the
manuals now" said the Lawyer-Landlord on receipt of the 2 months' security deposit
and the one month's advance payment of rental.
At the same time, he signed a cheque of $6,000 to Asia USA associate without waiting for the lease agreement to be stamped, the inventory list to be signed by the Tenant during take-over, the invoice, the letter of undertaking and all sorts of delays of most Landlords in Singapore.
First-time Landlords to note:
Realtors don't get fixed salaries and are dependent on
the performance in securing a Tenant for you. Once you have the Tenant, pay up fast and
you can be sure that your condo or house will receive top priority in the event that you
need a new Tenant. At the very least, you will not be forgotten.
Intelligent marketing by the Landlord does not end in
securing the Tenant. It goes further to build excellent relationship with the Tenant
and the Realtor. There is always the risk that the Realtor may entice the Tenant away from
your unit on expiry of the lease and if you have had treated the Realtor more than
decently by paying promptly so that he/she can get bread on the table, you can be sure
that you will be first on the list of all rental Realtors in Singapore, working hard to
recommend their clientele to you first.
