The expatriate who is an Occupant must be diligent in some cases where the
Landlord by-passes the Realtor. Before the Landlord gets a Tenant,
there is great interest in seeking the help of the realtor to recommend his
However, once there is a letter of offer, some Landlords feel that the
procedure is best done without an intermediary, as seen from this email.
This gives rise to unhappy situations as the Occupant who is the employee of
the corporation (the Tenant) may not know what is going on.
It is up to the Realtor to follow up
closely as once the tenancy agreement is signed, the interest of the
Occupant may not be included in the terms and conditions.
The Occupant (i.e. the expatriate whose lease is signed by his or her
company) must be diligent too, as the Human Resource Manager may not have
time to refer matters to him, in cases where the Landlord wants to deal
directly with the Human Resource Manager.
In this case study, the Occupant and the Realtor suffer a lack of
communication as the Landlord liaises directly with the Human Resource
Manageress. The email below illustrated that the Landlord now had no
time for the Realtor once the deal is almost closed. There was no
response to over 20 paging or messages left.
Building up a good Landlord-Realtor relationship is important for the
long-term, but each Landlord has his or her own way of handling matters and
doing away with the rental realtor once a tenant has been secured!
I have not had the
time to read and respond to your earlier email about the typed up Tenancy
Agreement because I have been very very VERY busy these few days attending
to Woodlands matters, both on-site and off-site.
I understand from
other directors that you were calling them today about the Tenancy
Agreement. Actually, there is no need for you to do so as I am already
handling everything at my end. I thought that you should already know that
since Human Resource Manageress told me that she already told you that she
is liaising directly with me. Both of us feel that it is very much easier,
clearer and faster this way. If I need you for anything, I will call you,
but that is unlikely at the moment.
In the meantime, I
hope that you will understand if I do not return your calls because I am
very very VERY busy. (Writing this email to you has already taken up a lot
of my precious time)---- My top priority now is to make sure that the units
are fit for handing over and to settle in the Tenants. As Managing Director
has no doubt told you, he is unable to attend to anything at the moment
because of his personal family matter.
In the above-case, it was not known why the Landlord (a shareholder
of the corporation) would want to handle the negotiations when the Realtor
was paid to do so. The Landlord pays the marketing fees in Singapore
on procurement of a Tenant and may as well let the Realtor do all the leg
The Occupant was not informed on any negotiations. The Realtor had to
push hard to get the documents. By-passing the realtor handling the
Tenant may not be a wise idea as the realtor usually has a better
relationship with the expatriate Tenant than the Landlord.
When the tenancy agreement expires, the realtor may have other prospects for
the Landlord but since if the Landlord has ignored the realtor, then, it is
unlikely that the realtor will recommend other expatriate clientele. After
all, there are more rental properties in Singapore in 2001 and beyond while
the expatriate tenant pool shrinks!
