Calling off the hunt

So we found a place that’s really nice – an apartment which is old enough not to be the usual low-ceiling small bedroom type of apartment. It’s got greenery, lots of it, and a dusty old lift lobby that’s seen better days.

But oh, the stress of having my mother, and my friends scream over the phone, things like, “Whaaaaaat? Wha you mean you paid the agents’ commission? You kenah conned!”, and “Whaaaat? The agent is trying to con you!”.

I doubt the agent was trying to con me, because he explained quite clearly that, “is because is a breaklease like what I explain to you earlier, because the tenant breaklease so must compensate although normally no need to pay commission but I get for you the price is way below what is asking and the arrangement is you pay half they pay half like I explain earlier already although no need to pay commission but this time is pay half month is quite common many people also got this type of arrangement even though it you normally is no need to pay”.

So much clearer. Even clearer after I parted with my cheque.

But you know what?

Yay.

New place.

Who you gonna call?

  2. Congrats on the new place — although I had no idea renting in Singapore could be that complex. I thought it was only the labyrinthine HDB procedures one had to worry about.
