Hello, if the rental agreement mentions the repayment of the deposit within 14 days of handing over the keys, the owner can keep the money by breach of contract. Since there is a slight wear and tear for which a certain amount must be deducted from the deposit, as agreed by the owner during the preliminary inspection and final rebate. However, the owner maintains our deposit and simply does not respond after handing over the keys. What is the legal obligation, the landlord can be sued for breach of contract Tenants must pay stamp duty (a tax on leases) within 14 days of signing the contract in Singapore. If you sign the agreement outside Singapore, you will have 30 days after receiving the document to pay the tax. Hello, can you consult, please? I`m a tenant with a 12-month lease. For work reasons, I intend to break the lease at the 6th month. But there is no penalty in my lease. Do I have to pay the remaining six months` rent, which I think is pretty unfair? From what you mentioned, it appears that your tenant intends to break the one-month lease. When the contract was signed with her, was there a written agreement, what if she breaks the terms of the lease? It really depends on what is indicated, so you can decide what steps you can take if the lease is broken (z.B.
The tenant must find a replacement tenant, the deposit is cancelled, take the tenant to small claims to recover the amount of rent lost, etc.). Hello Jamal, I had signed the contract with my tenants is valid until the end of June 2016. The tenant never told me not to get along again until I got her message, then she told me I could go further to get new tenants and also ask for the deposit to do without May. I refused because our contract runs until June and they have to pay me until June. The deposit had to hold until they moved and no damages to pay them back for 14 days. My wall was drawn by children everywhere, and I ask them to paint so I can bring a new tenant to see the house they refuse, and told me to return the deposit, so they will. As an owner, do I have the right to ask them to paint the house, as it is still 1 month before leaving the city? Please help me, I am a loss because I do not know how to treat this tenant. These models have been developed in consultation with regulators, the Singapore Consumers Association and professional associations and practitioners who, according to experience, work in the rental process. The models offer a common, fair standard to all parties: the TA is more important than the LOI and must be read accurately. In the event of a dispute, the end result often depends on this document. Note that the Singaporean government does not standardize or protect lease agreements as many other countries, such as the United States; As such, a TA may contain conditions that you consider unfair, but nevertheless applicable.
As a general rule, the rental agreement must be signed in the presence of the landlord and tenant with the broker (if any). In this case, where the lessor is abroad, the lease must be signed by the landlord and signed before you have approved it in order to clear up any misunderstandings. Regardless of this, according to the broker`s argument that the contract is not legally binding because the owner has not signed it, you should be able to recover your deposit. The tenant decided to withdraw from the contract because the apartment was not yet in a state of life (improvement of the house and amenities were incomplete).
