Can't I Move My Condo On Weekends?
If you are living in Singapore, chances are you may have
experienced this same situation when you have to move in and
out of your condominium units to a much bigger place or
space to accommodate your changing lifestyle and growing
need for more space for you and your family. In Singapore,
there are so called moving black out days (Saturday
Sunday). This means a tenant
is not allowed to move their things in and out during
weekends. Singapore rules have strictly imposed a no moving
on Weekend for condo even if you pay a high fee. Here are
some of the condo moving rules imposed by the building
owners that everyone must be made aware of when moving in
and out of condo units in Singapore.
