Case study:  "Proof of Ownership"  July 21, 1998 case report.

"Nobody had asked us for this in my many years of practice. You can sue me or my company (if the Owner was non bona fide) " grumbled the co-broking realtor who represented an Indonesian owner of the Parisian when she was asked to get the Owner's lawyer to submit proof of Ownership to the Asia USA associate.

The Owner's lawyer (probably the lawyer's clerk) was making a lot of noises at the other end of the phone.  Any new associate could be easily intimidated.

However, S$27,000 of deposit would be given to the "Owner" and it would be lost if the realtor representing the Tenant did not check out the proof of ownership as there are property scams even in Singapore. The Owner may also be a bankrupt and it is important you be aware of this as bankrupts don't usually return the money once they get the deposits.

There were reported cases in the Straits Times of "owners" taking rental deposits from several prospects and then disappearing. Such easy money making schemes are common all over the world.

You can check with the Registry of Titles and pay a fee.  

Despite her promise of producing proof of ownership, this Owner did not want to do so.   It was a take it or leave attitude.

A letter from the lawyer or correspondence will suffice, no need to fax over mortgage documents as these may be confidential.

"I have faxed over the maintenance fee invoice" (as proof of ownership) grumbled another Owner when the Dutch company wanted proper documentation such as property tax payment.

"No agent had asked us for this and we own several investment properties" was the reply.

Do not be intimidated. Use your judgment as obviously a civil servant or a Landlord with a Singapore address (which you have checked out) is unlikely to be conducting a scam and you can close the case promptly. Younger Landlords may be more cooperative.

Still you will have to follow up and get the proof of ownership documents before handing over the good faith and security deposits.  Some owners produce property tax documents as "proof" of ownership.  You can now check via the internet from the land registry board and by paying a small amount.  This is part of due diligence for a rental housing agent.
