Do you still have a copy of the copy online with the electronic stamp? As long as you have it, that should be enough as a legally binding agreement. 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). Does the owner have the right to deposit the deposit? This is understandable since the tenant is the one who terminates the contract and it is not indicated that the deposit should be refunded if the apartment is not ready. Ta is more important than the LOI and needs to be read in detail. 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. Our agent advises him to tell him that in light of recent events that make the place uninhabitable, and if he refuses to repair the A/C and the soils within a reasonable time, we will simply tell him that we are resiling the lease and removing it by the end of the month. The A/C took a total back seat, but it is still a habitable factor of the right place. After seeing the video and the photos of the ground, he asked us to “live with it for now”. On the other hand, the tenant is entitled to a full refund of the deposit, since the landlord has not complied with the agreement to provide a finished apartment? A lease agreement (TA) is the more detailed and legally binding version of the Declaration of Intent (LOI). Normally, the owner – or the owner`s real estate agent – prepares the rental agreement in accordance with the LOI. As a general rule, before the signing of the tenancy agreement, the tenant and the lessor are free to negotiate the terms of this contract to describe in clear terms the extent of liability for each party. This includes the tenant`s request that the landlord clean, repair, replace worn devices before moving in.
This can be indicated in the most detailed and explicit way possible, which the owner may choose to accept or contradict these conditions. For the deposit, it should cover the costs of refurbishing the house if they do not do so after the last date of the agreed rent.
