I recently rented my room for a year`s rent. It`s been two months since then, and I`ve noticed that my tenant has brought a Chinese woman on many occasions. I`d like to terminate the lease. Is it reasonable to give one month`s notice? The lease is for one person… Now this visitor seems to think she can pass anytime, and has been using air conditioning all day! I also discovered that she had even used my address to charge a data rate to a telecommunications company here… She is not even a tenant here. Do I have reason to cancel the one-year lease prematurely? Thank you What is the right procedure to evict a tenant if he insists on using his deposit to compensate the last month of rent. What constitutes a sufficient termination before such an eviction action can be taken by the owner. During such an evacuation, the landlord must call a security guard as a witness to prevent any claim of lost items by the tenant. If you have hired an agent to negotiate the agreement, you can ask for advice. If not, contact an external mediator, z.B the Singapore Mediation Centre or the Singapore Consumers Association (CASE) to resolve any issues.
These alternative dispute resolution boards have helped to assuage the majority of rental disputes in Singapore. You can also take your case to the Small Claims Court or the Singapore Civil Court if you feel that the dispute is necessary to be tried. Prior to 1990, the law required that a third party (witness) be present when signing a lease. At the end of that period, it was no longer legally required to do so, unless the guaranteed short-term lease lasts more than three years. This is because it is considered an act if the duration is equal to or greater than 3 years. Landlords generally set rules for early termination of the lease with potential tenants before signing a contract. Under no scenario should tenants terminate the lease before the end of the lease or licence. If certain unforeseen circumstances require a tenant to do so, landlords must be informed and prepared to provide financial compensation.
