Subletting happens when the space in your premise is being used by another business. The business will be known as your subtenant.
Subletting requires JTC's consent. Find out how to apply here. Do note that subletting without our consent is a breach for which we may exercise our rights to terminate your tenancy/lease agreement.
You are only allowed to sublet to related businesses.
We recognise the following as related businesses:
If you are a lessee of land or land-based facilities, you can sublet to related and non-related businesses. For non-related businesses, you can sublet up to 30% of your Gross Floor Area.
If you are a lessee of space in a high-rise development/workshop, you can sublet to related businesses but not non-related businesses.
Things to note for the application:
Log in to the customer service portal to submit your application.
For straightforward cases, we will inform you of the outcome of your application through the customer service portal, SMS or email within 7 working days of your full submission of required information and documents. For cases which require further assessment, we will liaise with you separately on the required processing time.
The subletting fee is payable by you through GIRO.
We will let you know the subletting fee for the entire period in our sublet consent letter. For late sublet applications, a higher sublet fee may be charged.
If we detect another business registered at or operating on your premises, we will send you a link to submit a declaration (via FormSG) within 14 working days. If you fail to respond within the stipulated timeframe, we are entitled to terminate your tenancy/lease agreement or charge you a higher sublet fee to regularise the breach.
Further details are in our guide on "Subletting your Premises" which you can find here.
