SINGAPORE: A new condo owner was shocked to see her new property looking like a “garbage home” after some Chinese students trashed it.
In a video shared on the TikTok and YouTube pages of Ben’s Social Club, a condo unit was shown looking completely trashed. The videos were originally taken from social media sites used by the Chinese in Singapore.
The condo owner Amanda bought the unit from another person who had not lived there but had rented it out. When she first saw the unit, it was rented by some Chinese workers and was in good condition. But when she saw the unit again, however, its condition was bad enough to make her cry.
The kitchen, living room, bedrooms, and bathroom were in a complete mess, with trash everywhere, including the floor. The former tenants did not bother throwing away their food containers and drink cups; waste bins were overflowing.
Somehow, even the marble counter in the bathroom was cracked.
There are old clothes, empty boxes, tissue papers, and trash strewn carelessly on every surface of the condo unit, including the beds.
However, after the transaction, it appeared that the former owner did not tell the new one that the tenants had used the deposit as the last month’s rent, so there was none left for the new owner to pay for a cleaning service.
What makes matters worse is that the students who rented the place had unpaid utility bills, and a third student, who has not been part of the contract, joined the other two in the condo unit. The new owner had to shoulder them herself.
Her comments can be seen in another TikTok.
She has since been said to have filed a police report and is carrying out a full unit renovation. Watch the situation being explained in the video below.
