Hello Jayaraj, it depends on the clause. If it is said that the relationship between the employer and the tenant is over or over, it does not matter how – voluntarily or not, unless otherwise stated Not to mention the fact that if you are renting for the first time, you must meet a list of unknown conditions in your rental agreement (TA). So, if you`ve ever visited a property and managed to guarantee a price that will make you feel comfortable, it`s time to look at all of TA`s rental clauses (or make sure your needs are properly protected). One of the most important terms to remember is the diplomatic clause. Who can benefit from the clause: tenants (including expatriates). However, this clause only allows early termination of the rental agreement if the tenant must permanently leave the country for work or if the tenant is evicted from Singapore or cannot remain in Singapore and supporting documents must be provided to the lessor. Some diplomatic clauses may also provide that the right of termination will not enter into force until after the expiry of a specified rental period. For example, a diplomatic clause may provide that the tenant can only terminate the lease 3 months after the start of the rental period. If he terminates the lease at a later date, he may have to pay the lessor damages/compensation for the breach of the clause.
A diplomatic clause is therefore particularly appropriate for foreigners working in Singapore, as they must be transferred abroad or can cease their employment in Singapore at any time. Hello! I was wondering if the diplomatic clause would cover the situation in which the tenant voluntarily resigned instead of letting the employer terminate his employment relationship? Here`s an example: If an expensive carpet starts to lose due to normal wear and tear, is the tenant due for maintenance or replacement? It`s in the air, unless you clarify your repair clause in a clear and ambiguous way. If you want to enter into a lease, either as a tenant or as a landlord, you can request an offer from Tan Ee Nin. You can also talk to a lawyer by booking a Quick Consult. If you receive a Quick Consult, a lawyer will call you back within 1-2 days for a transparent package of S$49 to answer your questions and give you practical legal guidance on your possible next steps. A forfeiture clause specifies how a lessor can recover ownership of his property if his tenant violates the terms of the lease. Most two-year leases contain a diplomatic clause as a safety net for you, so in the unfortunate case of such cases, you will at least not have to worry about unpaid rent. Let`s see what a typical diplomatic clause would look like: the market practice is that if the rental amount is less than $3,500, a commission is paid half a month. As a tenant, I am faced with an unforeseen circumstance because of my employee`s job transfer. My lease was broken before the period of the diplomatic clause.
I was looking for a tenant with the agreement of the owner. I found a replacement. I agreed to reimburse the brokerage fee on a pro rata basis to the owner. The owner wants to refund my deposit on a pro rata basis. As you know, no job in the world is completely safe or permanent. So, if you have managed to find a job in Singapore, it is also possible that you will be transferred or even worse fired! In such circumstances, it will definitely be a pain you won`t want to deal with if you have to cover the rest of your lease. . . .
