A transfer of tenancy refers to the handing over of the remaining tenancy period, together with the possession, rights and liabilities arising from the existing registered tenant (Transferor) to another party (Transferee).
Generally, transfer of tenancies are not allowed as tenancies are short-term and can be terminated any time by giving the minimum notice period or rent-in-lieu as stated in the tenancy agreement.
However, recognising that changes in business structure or corporate re-organisation may require a transfer of tenancy, applications may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Such cases include:
Please ensure that you have obtained the advisory from Development Control and Licensing Department (DCLD) for the transferee's (buyer's) proposed usage, before submitting your application to JTC.
