We have a home of a few hundred thousand and we are renting it out to earn rental income. Usually this amount is likely to be small. Yet, we have the potential to face unforeseen circumstances from the tenants. It may be a small one like the need to replace an air-conditioner unit which has been used for the last 10 years to a big one which may just be the tenant refusing to pay rentals on time! Please do not take matters into our own hands because it may be a wrong move!
Okay, do we have legal solutions to the nightmares in renting out our homes? I believe our guest-of-honour Mr. Alfred Chong will be able to help provide sound advice, legals ones too. I have known Alfred for some years and I see him as a down-to-earth guy who is always passionate when it comes to legal stuffs. I think this is why he is now highly sought after for high profile cases too. Please refer to the image for your view yeah.
