Arranging a tenancy

Arranging a tenancy through Knight Frank is very straightforward. Below we have given some guidance on how the process works, but for further information do not hesitate to contact your local Knight Frank office.

1. Finding the right property

Register with Knight Frank and take advantage of our extensive database of exclusive rental properties throughout Singapore. You can register by calling our office, or register online on My Knight Frank to receive email alerts of new properties as they become available to rent.

2. Viewing properties

We endeavour to arrange appointments that are convenient to you during weekdays, evenings and on Saturdays.

3. Making an offer

As soon as you have found a suitable property and communicated an offer to us, we submit it to the landlord for consideration. Any offer made is subject to satisfactory references being received and a tenancy agreement being completed.

4. Acceptance of your offer

When your offer has been accepted, we apply for references and begin preparation of the tenancy agreement between yourself and the landlord.

5. The tenancy agreement

Once all terms have been agreed by both parties and satisfactory references have been received, all documentation is forwarded to you and the landlord for signature.

6. An independent inventory

Before the tenancy begins, an inventory is prepared detailing the contents and condition of the property. This is carried out by an independent inventory clerk and a copy supplied to both landlord and tenant.

7. Rent and deposit

Prior to the tenancy commencing, we provide you with a statement showing the initial monies due. This will include the first rental payment, normally one month or quarter in advance depending upon the terms agreed. The tenancy agreement fee and the deposit, usually the equivalent of six weeks’ rent, are collected at the same time.

8. Completion and check-in

Once the tenancy agreement has been signed and cleared funds have been received in respect of the rent, deposit and other charges, the tenancy can proceed. On the day the tenancy commences, you will be checked into the property by an independent inventory clerk and the keys handed over to you.
