  1. Starting a thread to share bits and pieces of properties information 😀 For Condos pre and post 2009, there is a noticeable difference in their layout for Bay window and Balcony.
  2. Yet another case of "Do you know how rich I am?" 😢😢😢 The male resident could also be heard questioning the security guard why he wheel clamped his BMW. The security guard explained that the male resident had parked improperly the day before. At this point, the male resident interrupted the security guard's explanation and asked, "Do you know how many units I have here?" Subsequently, when the security guard could not answer, the male resident responded: "I have more than two units here!" As it was raining at that time, the security guard asked the male resident to go to a sheltered place to talk, but the male resident said: "Since you all like to make things difficult for others so much, just get sick, as you are poor, and like to die."
  3. Were they drunk? Aftermath of the party * The damage was extensive * used paper plates and uneaten food were thrown into the pool. * The toilets were also choked and damaged. * it took the cleaners 6 hours to clean up * The family's visitors have, on occasion, parked their cars illegally, despite repeated reminders not to do so. * their $500 tenant deposit had been forfeited because of the incident. It was a poolside party that had fellow residents seeing red. MediaCorp has learnt that the management council of Mimosa Park condominium in Yio Chu Kang has banned 2006 Singapore Idol Hady Mirza and his family, who live in the development, from using its recreational facilities after a private party on Oct 2. It is understood that the council was not pleased by what it saw in the wake of that party at the condominium's poolside clubhouse. For one thing, used paper plates and uneaten food were thrown into the pool. The toilets were also choked and damaged. Cleaners had to be called in to clean up the mess to appease residents who wanted to use the facilities. The damage was extensive and it took the cleaners six hours to complete the task. This is not the first time Hady and his family of five - who have been living in a four-bedroom rented apartment in the condo for the last three years - have broken the rules, said chairman of the condominium's management council Leonard Lee. The family's visitors have, on occasion, parked their cars illegally, despite repeated reminders not to do so. As a result, the wheels of their cars have been clamped on a number of occasions, said Mr Lee. But the mess in the pool proved to be the last straw. Last week, the chairman sent a letter to the family informing them that their $500 tenant deposit had been forfeited because of the incident. The family's access passes have also been cancelled, which means they cannot use the shared facilities - the pool, gym and squash court. The ban is for a period of six months. In the strongly-worded letter, Mr Lee said the episode "has caused severe inconvenience to our residents and other users" and, as a result, "additional expenses" had to be incurred to restore the premises. He added: "We are holding you responsible for all costs ... we shall be forfeiting your tenant deposit which will be used towards the partial cost of the cleaning operations". Mr Lee did not say how much "all costs" amounted to but added the council reserved the right to recover any other costs "that may have incurred as a result of your irresponsible behaviour". When contacted, 30-year-old Hady declined to comment on the matter, saying "it's personal". However, MediaCorp understands that his mother, Madam Mardiana Ahmad, has sent a letter of apology to the management council.
  4. I saw many ads of condo units with tenancy, it may be good to have some rental income during that interval but are there any catch with such arrangements? For example tenant spoil furniture, not willing to move out or what are the major catches one should look out for?

  6. Otters Crash Newton Condo Pool & Eat Koi As Residents Look On, Truly Living The High SES Life source: https://mustsharenews.com/otters-newton-condo/ Otters Enjoy Koi Feast In Newton Condominium Pool You’ve probably heard of the “5 Cs” that make an atas – or high-class – Singaporean: cash, car, club membership, credit card and of course, the ever lavish condominium. It seems like these days, it’s not just humans who want these 5 Cs — a Redditor spotted these otters living it up in a condominium’s pool as they eat koi. By koi, we mean the fish, and not the bubble tea that everyone loves. Otters ate Newton condo’s koi fish & swam in their pool It’s not clear when the otterly adorable ordeal went down, but a netizen posted the video on Reddit on Sunday (8 Mar) afternoon. The video captures the otters splashing around in the pool, looking like they’re having a whale of a time. Or an otter of a time? The otters allegedly caught some of the condominium’s decorative koi fish, and ate them in the pool. The creatures’ swift moves are hard to follow, but one of the otters is definitely holding something orange in its mouth. A koi, perhaps? While the koi fishes’ deaths were unfortunate, we have to remember that the otters were merely following their hunting instincts. With our concrete jungle taking over their natural habitats, we can’t blame them for finding alternatives. Condominium is next to a longkang Some comments on the video pointed out that the condominium that the otters visited was Park Infinia, located between Newton and Novena at 4 Lincoln Road. Upon closer inspection, it looks like the back of Park Infinia is barely 20 metres away from a longkang, or large drain. They’re separated by just a narrow road and the sidewalk. You can usually spot otters in large drains like the one near Park Infinia. It’s possible that they were swimming in the longkang and decided they needed a change of scenery. Netizens more amused than angry at otters in pool The comments left on the video showed that netizens were generally more amused than agitated at the otter situation. Some of them joked that the otters were “High SES”, or “high socio-economic status”, since they feasted on ‘koi sashimi’ while spending an afternoon in the pool. Others took the opportunity to make some otter-this-world puns: Whatever the case, this was definitely an uncommon sight for many. Hopefully, the residents weren’t too troubled by the otters’ visit, and that the pool has been cleared of any koi remnants. We can’t say that the compound was lucky to receive these otters as guests, but it definitely provided the Internet with some great entertainment.
  7. Dear bros, I have a question here that needs some inputs.. Currently I have a 3 room bto that is waiting to be completed. Around 2017. Thinking of getting private condo which is of bigger size which is also completing around same time. Which one will be a better choice in the future? Any opinions or comments?
  8. Just curious, anyone knows which condos that are Freehold and also situated near a mrt? Let say less than 1 km. I think these condos will not depreciate even in bad economic time?
  9. Hi All, Like to check with you guys. Should you park your car in a condo car park and a light drops from the ceiling and damages the car, the condo management should be responsible and compensate for damages right? Initially the condo management said they would compensate and then proceeded to make claim with their insurer. But here is the twist, insurer contacted me saying that the condo management has done their due diligence to do regular checks to make sure the light fittings are all in good condition and so the condo management nor the insurance company is not liable. This makes totally no sense to me. Can anyone advise on this please? Thanks!
  10. I saw some condos with balcony but there is no sink holes for water to drain out. How would the owner keep the area dry when it rains? Can buyer get a renovator to install one if there are none?

    Rent out or sell

    I have a condo that I just collected the keys and I also have a fully paid HDB. I always wanted to keep the HDB but my Wife wants to move to the condo and rent out the HDB. We are both working. A Property Agent once told me it’s better to sell the HDB as I can unlock more investment potential and choices with the sales proceeds. Further there is accrued interest on the HDB that might turn my sales into a negative sales in the Long run. Need some expert advices. Keep or sell?
  12. For example the small projects like Balmoral Gardens, which has only 40 units and mixed studio and normal condo units. Since such condo is so small, does the resident must go to the AGMs? Or do they have to participate in the affiars of the condo? I like a quiet life with no disturbances from others, like neighbours, or management offices, etc, just like my corner HDB unit, besides signing up electricity with PUB when I got the key I never had any interaction with any strangers and my only neighbor never comes home more than 10 days a year.
  13. Guys, I cant seem to get a definite answer on this. I'm planning to sell my existing place n move nearer to my kids' school. A friend is saying I should take the opportunity to get a HDB resale; as in my wife buy a resale HDB and I buy the condo but each of us has to finance each property individually. Is this allowed?
  14. I am aware that 99 LH condos gets hard to sell due to loan restrictions after 20 years and later. How about FH units? I am not looking at en-block though. I buy to stay but in the long run I might sell out when I retire in 10 years time. I can afford 40%+ downpayment now. Will banks have problem with 20+ year old FH condos? When I sell to buyers with 20% downpayment, will the loan become an issue?
  15. What are the considerations when buying old FH condos like Primo Residence in Kovan. I like the quiet environment and the close to parks and close to MRT. It may be nice to buy for own stay. When I look at the exterior, there are rain black stains in some units already. I heard that doing an exterior paint would cost extra money from residence rather simply using the sinking fund. Then there is repairs inside own unit due to wear and tear, mold, etc. What are the major issues which may require residence to fork out additional $? What are other considerations? Thank you!
  16. Hi, does anyone know if anything can be done to offenders who drive against traffic in a private property? Few days back, while walking across the carpark my mum got a shocked when suddenly a car appeared from the wrong side of traffic. I reported the case to our condo MA and they said they will issue a notice to the offender. The MA also shared that there have been afew other similar reports against the same car and one of the resident has also lodged a report with TP but they will not penalise the driver because it happened within a private property. Obviously this driver will continue this reckless behaviour. Is there any way we can take action against him or is there any suggestions to overcome this issue? I also notice other cars going against traffic but so far I don't bother cos they seem to move with caution... but I guess I was cant be bothered cos it did not affect me/my family till now. Any suggestions?
  17. Not sure if wols, happened yesterday in USJ One condo. The 'fighter' started to get aggressive when refused entry into the condo. Made the first move, in the end, kena taken down by the small-built guard.
  18. Just wondering , with the property going up north , at what combined income do you think an average Singapore can afford a Pte property > $1.2m comfortably ? EC > $1m for combined income of 12k is it too pushy / risky ?
  19. anybody with experiences living in ground floor unit of condo or EC? seem some bad press report about littering from the neighbours upstairs, how bout problems of insects, rats, ants etc, is it much worse than living on top floor? also privacy, is it true that anybody can just peep into your home and you are not allowed to do any unauthorise renovations such as blinds, etc on your patio? thanks for all feedback in advance.
  20. A taxi took a dive into a swimming pool at a condominium when it took a wrong turn in the heavy rain early Sunday morning. The ComfortDelgro taxi apparently plunged into the pool at about 3am. ComfortDelgro spokesperson Tammy Tan said the driver had gone to the condominium along Upper Bukit Timah Road to fulfil a booking job. As it was raining heavily, the driver could not see clearly and made a wrong turn. He thought it was to the road leading to the lobby. The 44-year-old driver managed to escape unhurt before police arrived on the scene. The vehicle was fished out after 7am. Ms Tan said, "We are relieved to learn that our cabby had escaped unhurt and we will assist him the best we can. We will also be in touch with the condominium with regards to any damage that may have resulted." Source: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/taxi-dives-into-condo/881512.html
  21. Looking at the resale market, and considering buying condo that is 8-9 years old this year. Is for staying and not renting. Is this a bad investment? Some people tell me never buy 99 years condo. Say next time cannot sell. Is this true? Let's say i buy a 9 years old condo $600K, and stay for 15 years. It will be 24 years old by then. Can it be sold then or too old to sell? What about the value? Will it drop significantly because it's so old and leasehold? How significant a drop, 1/2 price, 1/4 price? What if there's a property boom then, possible for it to retain it's value?
  22. this is a freaking nightmare for any home owner. luckily nobody was injured. FAQs below. Developer: MCC Land (Singapore) Pte Ltd Main Contractor: China Jingye Construction Engineering (S) Pte Ltd TOP in 2015
  23. It's my first time buying a property, encountered problems with the defects rectification process and the mgt. Appreciate advice from experienced property buyers. Condo developer is a big established one, didn't expect the unit to be handed over in a bad and uncompleted condition. Moreover TOP of this condo has been delayed for 4 months. Among many other defects, the kitchen cabinet has many misalignments, a drawer track wasn't installed and was lying in the drawer (see pics), discoloration of cabinet surfaces, deep scratches on solid table top and stainless steel backing. Skirting missing. Chips on bathroom basin top. Marble flooring in living room was not polished and looks used. Dents on doors. After joint inspection with construction supervisor and developer Rep, I handed a key to them to do defects. Few days later I checked, nth has been done as expected. But neighbour who already moved in alerted that the workers have been entering my unit at 9+pm, wearing t-shirts and shorts, since the day I handed a key to the construction supervisor. I called defects team the next day and was advised to email my complaint. As expected, no reply nor response. Though they did a few minor defects. The big items like flooring etc all left undone. Only 2 weeks left before the one month defect rectification deadline is up, have a feeling they may tell me that those are not defects or not able to rectify. Or they may request more time though I already told them I need vacate my current residence by June. Though I can rectify the defects on my own after the one month and claim from developer, I'm not sure what complications may arise. Like developer not honouring the claim? I'm gg to meet a Rep from construction team regarding the defects. What stance should I take? Anyone with experience to advise?
