prefer to live at Chancery Grove as the small children save a lot of time
travelling to the Overseas Family School in around 10-minutes by bus.
The Australian School is a 15-min bus ride from Chancery Grove townhouses.
Low density and low rise.

areas. However, newer townhouses in prime areas near downtown are
characterized by smaller bedrooms and living areas. It will be difficult to
accommodate a king-sized bed with 2 bedside tables and leave you some
Type of tenants:

townhouses rent lower than the others.

TIPS FOR TENANTS
Case study: Water heaters in new condos.
"We have already signed the
lease," said one exasperated expatriate to the Asia USA realtor who was not
involved in the lease. In the euphoria of renting a brand new condo, some
expats and realtors overlook the fact that the Developers have not provided water
heaters. An example was the Kew Green townhouses.
Once the tenancy agreement is signed, the
Landlord is unlikely to agree to install water heaters.
Many Caucasian expats want hot water for the kitchen too.
We had one case of a New Zealander wife renting a United Engineer's Square Condo, using
the hot water to wash dishes. The heat had melted the rubber ring of the sink stopper. The
hot water "sterilized" the plates but the rubber ring melted.
In Singapore, hot water supply to
the kitchen is uncommon as the locals don't use hot water to wash cutlery.
Dishwashers are not common too.
