The best-case scenario would be a six-and-a-half-month diplomatic clause for a two-year lease. Of course, not all owners will accept it, but it`s always worth negotiating on better terms! What happens if your lease does not contain these clauses or if you are willing to make your default lease? What are your options? Due to cultural norms and public housing policy, Singapore`s rental market tends to be very expatriate-oriented. The “Society of General Managers” (SR) and the Geneva Chamber of Immobilie (CGI) decided in 2001 to incorporate the diplomatic clause into the general conditions and rental rules and practices of the canton of Geneva that govern leases. As of December 1, 2001, the terms and conditions of sale and the rules and practices of leasing contain the diplomatic clause (see below). The diplomatic clause is added to leases involving tenants, permanent mission staff and international organizations who have a legitimation card (“B,” “C,” “D,” “E,” “G,” “G,” “H,” “I,” “L,” “P,” “S”) of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs. It is therefore no longer necessary for the tenant to expressly require the inclusion of the diplomatic clause in a tenancy agreement, since the terms and conditions and tenancy rules and practices mentioned above are an integral part of these contracts. However, the tenant must ensure that the landlord incorporates the terms and conditions of sale and the rules and practices of tenancy into the tenancy agreement. The diplomatic clause applies in the canton of Geneva. The real estate agencies and the owners of the canton of Vaud accept in principle the integration of the diplomatic clause in the leases. However, the tenant must expressly require the addition of the clause. The refund clause is added to the withdrawal clause. This clause, which is now rarely included in the TA, includes fees paid by the lessor at the beginning of the lessor.
If the exit clause is exercised, the tenant is required to reimburse these costs in proportion to the lessor if the repayment clause is included in the TA. The exit clause is not only a cover for a tenant who is facing unexpected changes in the organization of life and work, but a landlord can also apply the clause to prematurely terminate the tenant`s stay without having to rely on proof that the tenant has breached the ta conditions. Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, the status quo can change without warning. It is therefore important that TA anticipates what may happen under a lease agreement.
