What happens after I receive the Letter of Acceptance?
You are to prepare the required documents and payments as specified in the Letter of Acceptance, prior to signing the Tenancy Agreement. On the appointed date and time, a tenancy briefing is conducted on use and tenancy requirements of the property where you will forward the requisite items to the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) and sign the tenancy agreement. Following which, SLA would hold a joint site inspection and deliver vacant possession of the property to you. All keys and any other supporting documents on the property, if available, would also be handed over to you. You are advised to make your private arrangement to secure the property as SLA will terminate its security service for the property.
Can I start my A/A works immediately after taking vacant possession of the property?
No addition and alteration works are to be undertaken without the prior written approval of the SLA and the relevant authorities.
You are required to submit your detailed plans/ drawings to SLA for endorsement as the landlord before submitting to the Development Control Group (DCG), URA for formal temporary planning permission and to other relevant competent authorities for approval before commencement of works.
The process is indicated below:
Step 1 - You will be required to appoint a Qualified Person (QP) i.e. normally either an architect or engineer, who will assist you in your submissions to URA and the relevant competent authorities. The QP will prepare and submit plans/ drawings to SLA for endorsement for the QP's onward submission to URA.
Step 2 - SLA endorses plans/ drawings as Landlord's representative and retains 1 set of the plans for record purpose. A plan endorsement fee is payable.
Step 3 - QP submits the endorsed plans/ drawings to the DCG, URA for formal temporary planning permission as well as to any other relevant competent authorities for approval.
The QP will also advise you on the other necessary submissions and applications of licences to the relevant competent authorities, eg. Building and Construction Authority (BCA), National Parks Board (NParks), Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), Land Transport Authority (LTA), etc. Your licensed plumber and electrical worker will also help you seek clearances on utilities matters and opening of accounts with Singapore Power (SP) and Public Utilities Board (PUB)
Any unauthorised works or use prior to obtaining permission will be subject to enforcement action and civil penalties, where appropriate. However, you may inspect the property, take measurements, prepare A&A plans on the property for submission to SLA for endorsement after award but prior to taking possession of the property.
How may we apply for utilities for the property?
Upon signing the Tenancy Agreement, SLA will forward you a copy of letter notifying the relevant competent authorities that you are a Tenant of the State. You may then proceed to apply for a utility account from SP Services, Public Utilities Board.
May we apply for a power load that is higher than the approved maximum load?
Yes. You may liaise directly with the relevant competent authorities for a power load that is higher than the prescribed maximum load as advised by SP Power Grid Ltd. The provision of a direct service connection is dependent on the available network capacity in the vicinity. If there is insufficient capacity, you are required to provide a substation for the connection.
