Even if it is not explicitly mentioned in the exit clause of the rental agreement, the lessor should not have the right to take the deposit as a means of payment in the event of loss of income due to an empty unit. The deposit is intended only for the reimbursement of damage to the property. If you find that there are no other ways to resolve the case, you can go to Small Claims Court (www.statecourts.gov.sg/SmallClaims/Pages/GeneralInformation.aspx) as a last resort. Chang, it depends on the situation. Officially, the tenant signed the lease and paid the deposit. I think you should try to contact him/her and find out the reason for your absence. If the tenant has a legitimate reason and you think you are satisfied with it, you can continue. Nevertheless, if the tenant does not show up and does not warn, you can notify him of the termination of the contract after 1-2 weeks. In case the tenant does not show up, it would still be a good idea to continue. Thank you for your comment! Hello, ask if the tenant has signed the lease of the room and paid 1 month deposit, but does not show up at the end of the agreed date or after.
In addition, the tenant did not request the return of the deposit. Is this lease considered terminated? I have a question about termination before the end of the contract. Imagine that a person has signed a 1-year contract and due to unforeseen circumstances he has lost his job and has to leave the country, What would be the responsibility of the tenant if nothing is mentioned in the rental agreement? Hello Jamal, Actually, I had the printed copy of the agreement, but the problem is not signed, they are stamped online, so IRAS could not retrieve the document, because they do not need to affix the agreement by e-stamp when they are online. My deposit refund agreement should not be made until 14 days, when they will move and keep the original like what I rented to them on the first day. Now the tenants refused to remove the house and told me that I had to refund them the deposit. They must pay their rent before the end of June, since the contract expires in June and the deposit cannot set the rent, which was stipulated in the agreement. I trusted them professionally, so I didn`t get a copy of their signature. So how can I manage these prolmeotic tenants? Please advise you on how to solve my problem. Before establishing a lease agreement, landlords must decide whether or not the lease should end on a given date. Do you still have a copy of the online copy with the e-stamp? As long as you have it, it should suffice as a legally binding agreement.
Our agent advises him to say that in light of recent events that make the place uninhabitable and if he refuses to repair the air conditioning and floors within a reasonable time, we simply tell him that we are re-entering the lease and will move by the end of the month. . . .
