Some Key Tips for Renting a Place in Singapore – Part 1 – Know the basic ins and outs

What needs to be checked when you want to rent a place in Singapore? Treasure at Tampines share with you several things to be noted.


If you are looking to move to Singapore as a student or in connection with your job, you really cannot take this decision lightly. While it is very easy to see what you are going to get in terms of benefits, it is also quite simple to overlook the kind of due diligence that you need to do ahead of time.

Otherwise, if you just fly in and start scoping around for a place to rent, there is a high likelihood that you are probably going to be overpaying and a lot of people who have recently moved to Singapore as renters find this out in the worst way possible. They ask their new coworkers how much they are paying for their flat or their condo, and they are just blown away. It turns out that this newcomer from Manhattan or London or Los Angeles is paying several hundred or thousands of Singapore dollars more than they need to.

Know the basic ins and outs of renting a place in Singapore

So, if you do not want this to happen to you, please understand that you have to know the basic ins and outs of renting a place in Singapore. This does not mean that you have to have some sort of an advanced degree like a Ph.D. or a high-profile lawyer specializing in the real estate industry. You just have to have a basic checklist of what to pay attention to and what kind of contingencies that you are dealing with, so you can plan accordingly. As the old saying goes, “if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”.

This is true when it comes to Singapore. You do not want to find yourself halfway around the world in the middle of one of the best cities in Southeast Asia paying a lot more money than you need to. That money could have gone to enjoying the best Southeast Asian cuisine available all day every day in Singapore or just simply saving up for a rainy day.
