Why do I need an agent?

   
Re: Tenancy agreements/leases and your rights as a tenant

Allowed, why not? If you both agreed?
HDB requires 6 months minimum.

Now my LL wants me to vacate the house end June. He had given me a verbal notice in April beginning. In the mean time I went ahead and searched for the a house based on his verbal notice and found one (thankfully i have not entered into a contract as of now for new house).
Now when I informed the LL, he tells me round that "technically" I am supposed to stay in the house till end June so I complete two months of notice.

He gave you a notice that he wanted you to vacate by the end of June and he still says he wants you out by the end of June, so I am not sure where do you see the problem. IMHO, serving 2 month notice is about allowing period of time as stipulated in the contract, not to trigger some kind of timer - it is also important what the notice is about.
As soon as the other condition (the 6 month period) is over, he can do it any time providing the requested termination date is after the 2 month period. Besides, if serving the notice was required to be in writing, the verbal serving was not valid anyway.

Points for reminder, HE served me NOTICE, so isn't he the party who should serve two months notice and I being the receiving party should be allowed to vacate house as soon as I find an alternate accommodation.

No, unless this is how it is stated in the agreement. The notice to be served protects both the parties, not only you. Of course you can vacate earlier, but you would still need to pay.

See it this way: serving the notice does not annuls the agreement. You still have your duties. It only modifies the end date as requested by the other party. If so, It doesn't give you any right to modify it by your own. Of course, if the LL would gave you a valid notice in the beginning of April (so 3 months from the end date) you could have served your own notice immediately and shorten this period to 2 months (with all the related consequences)

My own agent has gone incognito, and my landlord still has my deposit .
I fear that if I stick to the gun of leaving the house early, i will lose most of me security under on pretext or another and he would also delay paying back the agent fee.

I feel I have been left at the short end of the stick.
Any advice would be welcome.

Re: Tenancy agreements/leases and your rights as a tenant

SinghAni:
Hi,

I am a south Asian expat living in Singapore since last year in an HDB flat. My lease is for 1 year ending this year in September. I had got a diplomatic clause inserted in my agreement that either party could break away after 6 months with 2 months notice (6+2) .
Now my LL wants me to vacate the house end June. He had given me a verbal notice in April beginning. In the mean time I went ahead and searched for the a house based on his verbal notice and found one (thankfully i have not entered into a contract as of now for new house).

Re: HR Help Needed: Change EP Application Detail after Submission?

Strong Eagle:
What detail? If you are a convicted serial killer and failed to mention that "detail" it might have a bearing on the outcome of your application.

If you lied about income... previous job or this one, it might a bearing on the outcome of your application.

Details, details... what detail did you leave out?

Re: Music

Shadow Gallery – Interesting, never heard of them before. Quite a collection of styles, from ‘post prog’, outright metal (Iron Maiden etc) to verging on doomy thrash.


Dixie Dregs – Promising venue. Blimey getting off towards Blue-grass. The biggest surprise was the lead Steve Morse who went on from them to be lead guitar in Deep Purple, and the line-up I saw in SG a few years back no less...
This was the start of the Dixie Dregs, a Fusion band that had strong influences from Bluegrass, Rock, Celtic, Prog Rock, Country and Jazz. Gentle Giant and Kansas, and things like Mahavishnu Orchestra influences are easy to hear.

They went on to become and do only one or two Country and/or Bluegrassy-songs on subsequent albums and became more Fusion and what can only be described as their own sound, full of mixes of odd- and even time signatures and uber musicianship.

This is more indicative of their early sound, and what got me hooked on them:


():


Mention of Gentle Giant warrants a sample, utterly brilliant and an acquired taste, hardly accessible, not for the faint of heart, where does one begin.....





Hot Tuna – interesting (again), only heard that as a surf brand of clothing. But in this case a spin-off from Jefferson Airplane. Knowing that I can see how they evolved that sound.


The Naz – Again never heard of them. Reminds me somewhat of bands like The Yardbrirds... [their 2nd link more ‘psych’... like it :)
I think that is what they were aiming for*.

The goofy looking guy is Todd Rundgren, before he went on his own; he's probably the only one who went on to become famous.

The Nazz were a Garage band from Philadelphia, hence Todd's later association with acts like Hall and Oates as their producer. I believe The Nazz are on the first Nuggets compilation of Garage / Psychedelic Rock bands.

*On Todd's


Kansas – Almost like Focus in the intro -> The Mamas and the Papas.

Queen/Ogre Fight – Don’t know if I’ve heard this before. The bands inherent talent really shines though .



Queen/Nevermore. Again don’t know this. By god FM could sing... what a voice.
-------

Wow, fascinating compilation there, and I don’t think I’ve heard a single one of those tracks before! The surprise there is that I thought I knew Queen reasonably well, but it shows me that I don't...
Indeed - all but the last came up in conversation that night, I put the last because even some that think of themselves as Queen fans don't know some of this earlier stuff which was excellent and as good as the later stuff everyone knows.

Another one in the same vein

Re: Company Formation + Employment Pass After 1 Year

Kennyj:
Hi Strong eagle,

Many thanks for your thoughtful response and my apologies for getting back so late. Got busy with hospital visits since my wife just delivered a baby :)

Okay so yes, I will be forming a Singapore company and I do understand that singapore govt might look at my case very dimly if I am not contributing to singapore economy in anyway.

What if I did this?

1. Formed a singapore company with a rented resident director and myself being an executive director and 100% shareholder.

2. Paid myself a fixed salary every month somewhere between S$3000 - S$4000 and pay income tax and on all the balance funds held in corporate account, either pay those as dividends to myself and pay corporate tax or have those funds lying in SG bank account

3. I also intend to create one or two part time jobs initially and then move to singapore after an year to create more jobs, open an actual office and start operating primarily from singapore.


What are your thoughts on above?

Also here is my Question: Is business plan required for already operating company that is in early growth stages? Perhaps I can demonstrate 3 year projected financials at the time of applying for Employment pass or even if required can submit a detailed Business Plan with proposed business activities in singapore?

Again, your thoughts? Appreciate all the help I can get.

HR Help Needed: Change EP Application Detail after Submission?

blackmores:
Hi all,

Kindly need your input for my situation.

Last week, shortly after I accepted the offer, HR sent me the MOM form for EP in word file for them to submit, which I filled in and returned to them. However, just now, I realised I may filled a detail inaccurately. Currently, my EP status is pending.

Question: Even if I point this concern to the HR, can they edit it on the MOM online system? (Can an EP application be edited after submission?) Any known effect if this is possible to do?

Thank you in advance for your help! :D [-o<

Husband ran off to Singapore

Beauty_vs_Beast:
Hello all.

My story is a bit sad, but probably typical.
I have been married to my husband for 2 years, we have one common child. We have been living in the UK, but I am not from the UK originally. He got this opportunity to move to Singapore and played it like a family move. He asked me to stay with children at my parent's place in my home country so just he could arrange the move, pack things, sell the car and cancel the contract on the flat :) He said it would not be comfortable for us to stay in half-packed house. The plan was he would come to my country and pick us up and take with him. So he left us and went alone. I know, I am an idiot.

Now I basically have no place to live aside of my parent's place and no job. I am on maternity leave, but the job I could return to is in the UK. I struggle to come back there, because strictly speaking my spouse visa is not valid when me and husband live separate. Also because I can't pay rent and 2 sets of childcare for kids from my salary there. I have two kids (one from previous relationship).

I need to know his residential address in Singapore, so I can apply for maintenance or divorce in my country. Of course, he is not telling me that. :-k

Does anybody know where and how I can obtain husband's address in Singapore? I know his Employer.

Re: Singapore Citizenship application rejected after two years

JR8:


Dang! We agree.

Haha, me too. But what also struck me was the parallel with landlords who refuse to accept a weakening market, and the necessity to reduce the asking rent for a vacant place apparently preferring instead to face a lengthy void.

Re: Expenses Breakdown and Salary Suggestion - Company transfer but no expat package

JR8:
I think HDBs can vary a lot. Most of the earlier ones I experienced (older owners) were older and dated themselves. Things like bathroom off the kitchen. The soil-pipe from the unit above being surface mounted down the bathroom wall. Surface mounted plumbing. And because people walking along the external corridor would look in, then there was a sheet of obscured perspex across the open windows to stop that. In one such example the citizens of the area had voted for 'the wrong party' so the exteriors of the buildings were getting shabby too. So those 2-3 cases were what informed my view. Pretty run-down, cramped, underlit.
Then a couple of years back I went to lunch with some friends of my wife and the difference was amazing. They had a new HDB and the first thing that struck was the size, it was huge, bigger than any flat I've ever lived in... *huge*, maybe 2000ft-2500ft?
I also know someone in an HDB near a sports complex, which for me would add the typical 'condo facilities' HDBs can lack. So when we were flat-hunting last time I know we tried to tie together the new HDB element, together with the local facilities. So it's not as if I ruled out renting an HDB, it just didn't come together that way that time.

Something else that might come into play; where do these newer HDBs get built? It seems to be on the periphery (Punggol etc). But IME expats usually have a desire to live closer into town, unless they've triangulated on the likes of Woodlands for proximity to the American School. Perhaps it's how native you want to go (predicting which can be hard, esp for a new arrival). I've described before wondering in the big mall by Yishun MRT and a local child of maybe 2.5-3 stopping dead in her tracks, pointing at me, and bursting into tears :) It was amusing but also alienating, and Yishun is what I mentally consider a pretty 'Zone 2-3 kind of neighbourhood.

So I think age of an HDB can matter a lot, since it's perhaps very limited the extent to which surface plumbing etc be 'modernised'/made a bit more discreet, whilst it is occupied. And age of HDBs is not something you often see described in listings IME.

cocole:


Ahh, different. I'm probably the batch after yours. I'm starting on the 9th:)


Hi neomoomoo!
Mine is 1st June ;) you?


May I know if the HR got contact your references for background check?

I'm not sure if they did but I doubt so. I think the chances of them calling is higher for those who's either ex crews from other airlines or those working.

I may be wrong. Correct me if I'm:)

No, i did not receive any call from the HR regarding any background check.
