With the pandemic disrupting the construction sector and interrupting the flow of manpower, it’s no surprise that the timeline for property completion has been extended.

Buyers at Tampines GreenCourt, Clementi NorthArc and Woodleigh Hillside received news that they need to wait three and six months more before their homes would be ready.

This latest delay pushed back the original timeline for key collection by up to an entire year, leaving many frustrated and scrambling to make alternate plans as some had young children starting a primary school near their new homes.

If you’re one of the unlucky few affected by the delays, here are 9 rental options to explore. Whether you work from home and are in dire need of some privacy or you’re a family with young children who desperately need extra space, we’ve got options for you.

The minimum rental duration of an HDB unit is six months, while private residential condos have a minimum three month lease period. Co-living spaces are ideal for this situation as it allows for month-to-month rental.
