Evacuation is the physical removal of the tenant and his property by the assistance of a police officer. The termination of a tenancy agreement may require the landlord to bring an eviction action or an action in unlawful detention if the tenant remains in the rent after receiving a termination. To begin the eviction process, the landlord must file a complaint with the court and wait for the tenant`s response. If the landlord has the upper hand, either because of the merits of the case or because the tenant has not given an answer, the landlord has a legal right to repossess the property. If the tenant refuses to leave after receiving the eviction notice, a police officer can remove the tenant. It is very likely that many tenants will want to terminate the lease prematurely, and they cannot/will not care about finding a replacement. For them, paying an early termination tax is the most attractive option. Domestic violence: In some states (such as Nevada and Washington), landlord and tenant laws allow survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, harassment or illegitimate harassment to break a lease and, if necessary, travel. If your tenant sends an early termination of the lease letter as a reason, check your state laws to see what your obligations are. Even if your state does not protect victims, it is not advisable to force your tenant to remain in an uncertain situation. If a tenant rents or does not pay rent or deposit on time or if the tenant repeatedly delays payment, the tenant can terminate the tenancy agreement.
Job loss: it makes sense to be compassionate here. If your tenant can no longer provide the income to pay rent, it makes no sense for them to continue to live in your rent. At that time, in their lives, they would not have been able to meet the screening criteria that you set when renting the unit to them. Letting them out of the lease is much less time-consuming, laborious and costly than continuing an evacuation or putting a collection company into play. Work with your customers to find a solution that works for both of you. Divorce/illness: Just as a job loss, divorce or serious illness can seriously affect your tenants` finances. Even if you are not legally obligated to exempt your tenants from a lease in these ex teuing situations, it is a little easier for all concerned to give a difficult situation to your tenants. If z.B. a couple in your unit decides to separate, rents could become a source of conflict. Similarly, if a tenant shares with you that they must be evacuated due to a death in their family (either a tenant or a relative) or a serious illness, it is advisable to be compassionate.
In Singapore, leases typically include a tenancy period ranging from six months to two years.
