Case study:
Will you rent to a Landlord who does not accept the diplomatic clause and wants to break lease anytime?
September 6, 1998
To: The First-Time Landlord
This report is meant for the first-time Landlord.

Singapore Landlords prefer Company leases as they think that there is less hassle and more security. However, there is a type of corporate lease which may leave them vulnerable and you may be better off with a personal lease.

For example, the Singapore Airline, a solid financially strong company well known globally gives short notice (i.e. one month) to vacate the premises.

There is no diplomatic clause of 12 months' minimal occupancy period with 2 months' notice or rent in lieu of notice.

Another company is Olam International which wants to give monthly notices at the commencement of lease.

It is up to the Landlord to assess and take the risk as the Tenant can legally give you one-month's notice after living in for a few days!

If your condo is "rentable" (location good, views excellent, quiet, near subway), try to get a lease with diplomatic clause, rather than take risk as rentals are expected to decline further.

If it is not in demand, rent to a corporate tenant with such conditions and get the investment condo earning revenue.
