Hi! I was wondering if the diplomatic clause would cover the situation where the tenant voluntarily resigns, instead of having his employment terminated by the employer?

Hi Jayaraj, it depends on the clause. If it states that the relationship between the employer and the tenant is ceased, or terminated, it shouldn’t matter how – voluntary or not, unless stated otherwise

Hi My friend had contracted which denoting the tenant shall compensate 3 months rental fee at least regardless of the stay duration. Now he need to leave Singapore and relocate to China soon and having trouble due to this clause. is there any legal protection to protect tenant against those unfair contract?

Hi!

I’ve purchased a unit with tenancy, and the tenants would like to terminate the tenancy early based on the diplomatic clause.

There is also a reimbursement agent fee clause in the tenancy agreement. May I check if the tenants are required to pay us the commission fees on a pro-rated basis, please?

Thanks so much!

Hi Casina, thanks for your question. It wouldn’t make sense to collect the agent fees or marketing-related costs here because you didn’t incur them to begin with – this was incurred by the previous landlord/owner.
