The Purpose of Property Reinstatement
It is very common for a modern commercial lease to carry out alterations and also to contain an obligation on the part of a tenant to reinstate any alterations made to the premises, usually at the termination of the lease term, before the relocation of the business.
Landlords of commercial properties in Singapore typically require tenants to reinstate their property back to the original condition as a precondition of the termination handover.
The reinstatement work process is usually time-sensitive in nature; that’s why the essence of our service is to identify key timescales and ensure your termination handover is delivered on time and within budget.
