A small balcony (top left) with open railings is unsafe for toddlers. The high floors have a soothing view of green trees and Orchard Road apartments and lots of breezes.
1. Getting out of construction noise homes.

walk). Short bus ride to the Tanglin Mall and
Orchard Road via Tanglin Road.
Walk 5 minutes to Redhill subway (MRT) and then 4
subway stops to Raffles Place subway (MRT). Time taken 8 minutes!
Lower rentals than Orchard Road condos. Rentals are S$2,500 -$3,500 fully furnished for
2-bedroom and 3-bedroom respectively.
Not all units have a balcony. Rentals have dropped considerably as the new and high density Tanglin View condos next door attracts expatriates.
Living and dining areas are crammed in the
2-bedroom units, but the ceilings are higher than most condos.
Shower stall's shower head may be positioned too low for tall Caucasians.
Case 1. Construction noises drive the expat crazy as construction work in Singapore goes late into the night and on weekends and public holidays too.
E-mail from FD:
Excellent website - very useful. I am currently about 7 months into my second 2 year lease at my condo. However, construction started next door and quite often goes on 24 hours a day. This is making life at home pretty unbearable. Is there anyway I can get out of my lease??? The landlord is extremely good - however he would be reluctant to let us leave especially as rents have dropped. Any thoughts?
Any leaking roof or no response of landlord to defects or breach of contract by the Landlord? Is apartment in a tenantable condition? If not, you will need to move out. Pay the Landlord some compensation.
Assign the lease to another person and you pay part of
the rent. Some expats want a short 5-month lease and do not mind the noise if rent is much
lower. Double glazing the windows to sound-proof them. Insist this from the
Landlord. The technology and expertise to do a good sound proofing may not
be so readily available to the small landlords in Singapore even in 2001. Cracking my head but I can't think of any more solution.
Thanks for the compliment on website.
Tips for first-time Landlords:
Case study 2. Renting to start-up companies.
"You should guarantee that rentals be paid according to contract" said Mr X. He refused to sign the lease agreement although my client had agreed to a commencement date 4 days ago and had paid the monies.
He agonised over the fact that the start-up global company is not yet registered in Singapore. His lawyer advised him against renting to "illegal migrants", "over-stayers". Visions of him being caned by the Singapore government for such offences must have given him sleepless nights.
All Singapore lawyers, in our opinion, will give such cautious advices. Many of the new start-up companies with are looking for offices at the same time as renting residential apartments. If the Landlord wants to be worry-free, rent to an established company, be prepared to wait a long time if your condo is not in a good location.
"You should find me a better quality tenant; I have
had waited one and a half months for this company" said Mr X when the global Company
finally offered to rent at a lower rental and for one year only. Asia USA advises all
Owners not to wait for any prospective tenant and in this case, we definitely advised the
Owner to take first-come (cheque) first-served but he would not listen. In this case,
there was no contract or money deposits, yet Mr X really liked this Company and their
earlier partially furnished requirements including 2-year lease. However, the head office
slashed the rental towards closing.
New housing agents to note: Check the new start-ups as follows:
New landlords to note: If your lawyer has not given you clearance, please be decisive and forget about this segment of the market (the new companies and start-ups). In this case, the delay by the Owner (called our agent day and night every day) and his endless worries led to no water supply to the condo as the Landlord refused to sign the lease agreement despite the fact that the other party had signed and had given the monies. On our side, we could easily switch the client to another condo as we do have too many, but it was not the right thing to do.
