It should be paid if the tenant rents the whole house or part of a house (for example. B a room) or if the lessor renews or renews the lease. According to IRAS, the party that is required to pay the rent stamp duty is usually stated in the agreement. Technically, a lease must be stamped before tenants sign it. However, for practical reasons, this almost never happens. In reality, a rental agreement can still be stamped without penalty if it is concluded within the following period: the stamp certificate contains several information such as the reference number of the document, the reference number of the stamp certificate, the description of the document, the address of the property, the amount paid and the names of the parties in the document. Pay the IRAS stamp duty and ask for the utility. Technology has made it a breeze these days.
