Redditor BurstJoe's wife spotted these ofo bike being parked indiscriminately in the lift of their HDB block. As she was pregnant, she was unable to move the bikes out of the lift on her own. She took photos of the bikes being parked indiscriminately and asked her domestic helper to help carry them out. It is unclear why anybody would park their rental bikes in the lifts.

INDIAN TENANT REFUSED TO GIVE UP RENTED HOUSE EVEN WHEN OWNER OFFERED COMPENSATION

I found this Indian senior consultant IT guy who wants to rent it . He bargained for it and I decided to rent out 1200 for the whole unit to him and his gf (from Laos). She is here on holiday. We signed a contract for 2 months. I printed out the standard template agreement from ERA and let him sign. There was no agent involved. I did it myself. By right on the 10th (couple of days from now) he is supposed to start his tenancy, my housing agent then told me he found a buyer for me already and also then told me actually it's not legal to rent my place for less than 6 months in Singapore. All these I didn't know because it's the first time I am renting short term for my HDB. I don't wanna do something illegal either. I quickly told my Indian tenant I cannot rent to him anymore and was willing to return him his money immediately but he was very unhappy and wants me to compensate him at least 600 to 700 dollars (or possibly more) for inconvenience and if i don't comply to his amount of money he will go to legal department and HDB to complain about me. He was very aggressive towards me.

COUPLE WITH 5 KIDS FACE HDB EVICTION FOR OWING 3 MTHS RENTAL WORTH $239

My husband just got terminated from his job and now is on part-time odd job basis while going for full time job interviews. Recently, I’ve received letters from the HDB and SP services regarding my overdue bills – HDB rental owed is $170 (plus late charges) and the SP services $239. The rent each month for our rental unit is $44 and I owed HDB 3 months. I’m particularly worried about all the bill letters they sent recently because they will restrict our water supply and we also need to vacant our unit if we continue to owe them money.

LOW INCOME SINGLE MUM DEPRESSED AFTER HDB RENT HIKE, HOPES PM LEE WILL SAVE HER

Yesterday (27/06/2016), I received a telephone call from the HDB Branch Office and I almost had a heart attack when the HDB Officer told me that with effect 1st August 2016 my monthly HDB rental will be increased to $ 322/- which is 200% more increase. Ever since then I became very depressed and couldn't eat or sleep worrying how to make ends meet as I am no longer young and healthy to do overtime everyday.

HIGH RENTAL AND LABOUR COSTS ARE KILLING OFF LOCAL BUSINESSES

It is with much exasperation that I am penning down this note and I hope you can help share with all fellow readers, the predicaments local start ups like us face not just both in rental and labor costs but also the near inability to obtain any support from MTI or EDB! I am running a local bubble tea chain which has been shrinking due to my immense difficulties in recruiting suitable local staff as after deduction of the hefty rental superimposed by Capitaland and material costs, I can only afford to pay a Singaporean no more than $1250 for a 5 day work week. I personally would love to hire Singaporeans first and I hope our honorable WP MPs like Mr LTK whose speeches I follow and is coincidentally a businessman himself, can give our desperate cries an adornment motion in Parliament as we cannot expect the SCCCI NMP to be doing anything without prior permission from his taskmasters!
