Documents You Will Need

It may include clauses outlining a diplomatic or repatriate clause, the deposit(s), terms of the lease, and the requirements of the tenant.  The LOI is an important document that is legally required to rent a condo in Singapore.  Most tenancy agreements run at least one year, so you will need to ensure you will be able to remain at the rented condo for a year.

A lease agreement is produced by the landlord after the LOI is signed.  It includes a Diplomatic (Escape Clause) or Reimbursement Clause.  The clause applies strictly to leases that are two years or longer, and to submit a written request by the company if the landlord agrees to the term.

The tenancy agreement also outlines that utilities, the internet and phone services are your sole responsibility.  If you need maintenance to your apartment, you will only be responsible for damages in the $100-150 range, unless found to be your negligence.

You want to make sure the rental amount agreed upon, and then you will need to get stamp duties stamped to finalise the contract.  You will need to provide the stamp duties certificates as well and ensure that both parties understand the terms.
