Guide to Renting Without Property Agent

Published on July 26, 2021

One of the most important resource is the Tenancy Agreement. CEA provided a lengthy template for whole flat, which covers everything.

As for renting of only bedrooms, I couldn’t find a good template, so I copied and adapted my own.

A summary of the steps:

  1. Check eligibility
  2. Post on Carousell, Gumtree, Ohmyhome, etc
  3. Get HDB Approval ($20)
  4. Sign Tenancy Agreement & collect deposit
  5. Pay stamp duty to IRAS
  6. Move in & inventory list
  7. Re-contract (repeat step 3-5)

It’s easy.
