    Last minute tenant pulling out .

    Hi everyone , i just bought over a hostel
    still havimg a lot of problems with tenants . I need your advice . I have bought over a student hostel . Was renting it out for foreign workers due to circuit breaker and malaysia lockdown . All the students have to be home or in homeland . This is all i can get . The URA has approved my hostel . Well there was this couple chaps want to rent our 4 person room . So as my friend's advice , i asked for sgd 150 person as deposit . So paid sgd 600 on the 20th of april. My staff had given them only receipt and told how we will refund after they move out . I couldnt show the room due to there was still occupants i the room . They said all good , ok and may 1st they would check in . On May 1st in the morning suddenly told me that they cant stay in the hostel and its over crowded they say , they have found a different place . They want their deposit back . They didnt sign any letter of intent or tenancy agreement . My brilliant staff forgot say to them that the deposit will be burned if they didnt checking on the 1st may . After i told them thati cant return deposit . They threaten to file case and go small claim tribunals. I need advice how to withheld the deposit . Please advice. Will that be black mark for me ?

      This forum is for Great British issues.
      I think you need something for Singapore (guessing based on the currency).
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        Is this property in Singapore? This is a UK website..
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...
