Renting in Singapore: What You Need to Know
Just so you don’t need to find another apartment blog for more information, here are some essential facts to demystify renting in Singapore. The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) is the main governing body for Singapore’s real estate and apartment industry. Here’s what to remember:
- Short-term accommodations on platforms like Airbnb are illegal in Singapore
- Unless the apartment owner has a license, apartment units cannot be rented out as short-stay accommodations.
- The minimum rental period for rental leases is usually three months, unless the serviced apartment provider has a license to run short-term serviced apartments.
- For long-term private accommodations and extended stays, you need to be a Singapore Citizen, Permanent Resident, or Long-Term Resident (someone with an Employment Pass, Work Permit, Student Pass, Dependent Pass, or Long-Term Social Visit Pass)
