TIPS FOR OWNERS
Case study for
Singapore owners written in 2002:
"U"-shaped ceiling hooks for previous ceiling fan should be removed
when you renovate your investment condo. When you rent a $10,000
condo, do not try to save money.
On a visit to a
4+1 3,400 sq. ft Ardmore Point Condo, the whole unit had been
renovated with nice cream-coloured circular columns separating the
family area from the living area. Cornices and down lights were
installed. There are side lights from the entrance.
"U-shaped" hooks hang from the ceiling. The Landlord or his managing
agent should have used "false" spotlights to camouflage the hooks
which were used for ceiling fans. Better to have removed the hooks.
The explanation was that ceiling fans might be re-installed.
Overall, it created a poor impression and unnecessary worries that
the Landlord might be a "cheap-skate" type.
impression is reinforced by the unrenovated powder room and the
common bathroom as well as cheap plastic towel railings. It is
really hard for the Managing Agent to attract the $10,000 type
