Illegal Leasing and Subletting of Residential Property
We would like to update all Residents that it is now illegal for private home owners to lease out their properties for short-term accommodation. An existing Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) guideline against any short-term accommodation of less than six months in private residences was incorporated into the Planning Act after an amendment was passed in Parliament on 6 February 2017. The current penalties, whereby private home owners who lease their units for less than six months can be fined up to $200,000 and jailed for up to a year, remain unchanged. The above information are extracted from this link: (http://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore/short-term-home-rentals-airbnb-now-illegal-government-looking-changes)
We wish to advise that in Singapore, owners of both private residential properties and HDB flats should not sublet their premises on a short-term basis to tourists, as this will lead to high turnover of occupants and high human traffic, which could cause nuisance and safety concerns to the neighbours. Premises that are approved for residential use are for longer term stays of 6 months or more, under URA’s (Urban Redevelopment Authority) guidelines. Please refer to the URA’s website (http://www.ura.gov.sg) for more details.
We wish to emphasise that the Management & Security will do our utmost best to monitor such activities closely in Thomson Three. Any suspicious cases of such will be reported to URA for handling. We wish to seek for the assistance of the residents who notice any suspicious cases to keep the Management Office informed.
Proper Disposal of the Trash at the Bin Chute and Recyclable Materials
Rubbish bags are often found left along the common corridor, especially at Level 1 of Block 43 and Block 41 as observed recently. For a clean environment, we seek your co-operation to exercise proper disposal into the bin chute located within the bin chute chamber at every level.
Residents are also advice to tie up the breakable/ recyclable items such as glass bottles, used paper cartons and etc. and place it at the bin centre or recycle bin areas provided outside the B1 Lift Lobbies at every block. A designated recycled bin area was also located opposite House No. 29 at B1 Carpark for the Strata Houses.
We also wish to reiterate that for the disposal of bulky items such as washing machine, refrigerator, bed and cardboard or any of this kind, the residents have to engage their own disposal contractor to dispose them at their own expense.
For the benefits of all residents, the management would like to seek your co-operation to dispose your refuses considerately.
We also wish to seek for your co-operation not to place your personal items at the common area outside your unit as it is a requirement by the SCDF that it should be free of obstruction for easy access to escape routes in any emergencies. Stacking and placing of items at the common area is prohibited as it increases the likelihood of fire (Fire Hazards).
Please be advised that the Management Office has been issuing Advisory Notice(s) on the items that have been left at the common area. For the safety of all residents, we would appreciate if you could clear/ remove any of your belongings from the common area soonest possible.
Car Decal for Car Parking

Driving in toward Car Park
Please be advised that the Car Driver(s) should drive towards the car park by making a turn at the roundabout before driving towards the Car Park Ramp instead of driving in by cutting into the exit lane.
Please find the illustration as per the pic below.
There have been several incidences where vehicles are driving in a wrong direction and this may potentially cause unforeseen accidents to occur.
We also wish to highlight that the area on the left side is also a pedestrian walkway and driver should take extra cautious when driving towards the roundabout.
In view of the above, we strongly seek the cooperation of all drivers to drive with cautious and in due diligence by driving at slow speed when approaching the concerned junction to avoid and minimize any traffic incidents around the estate.
Temporary Pathway at the Back Gate
We have received numerous feedback with regards to the conditions of the temporary pathway outside the Back Gate of Thomson Three.
We wish to share with you that the Developer on good faith during the construction stage took the initiative to discuss and seek approval with the relevant Authorities to provide a back gate for the development due to consideration for residents taking public transport buses at the nearest bus stop located at Sin Ming Ave. As such, approval was obtained from the Authorities for the provision of the back gate. Nevertheless, the grass turf outside the back gate/boundary wall belongs to Bishan Toa Payoh Town Council property and as such, we are not allowed to construct anything on their land.
Upon checked with them, they mentioned as this area only benefits the residents staying at Thomson Three, they would not want to add on any costs to the Town Council by doing a proper pathway for this area. However, they do not have any objections if the Management of Thomson Three decided to build a proper pathway for their Residents.
As the management, currently is not empowered to expend any funds for any works which are not within the property of Thomson Three, therefore the Management would hold this matter for the 1st MC to decide after the 1st AGM, when the 1st MC is formed.
In the meantime, the Management Office has done up some improvement works by re-arranging the tiles of the temporary pathway for the better access of the Resident.
For your own safety, please exercise extra cautious and in due diligent when accessing the temporary pathway.
Car Washing Bay at Thomson Three
We wish to advise that at this point of time, there is no washing bay allocated at Thomson Three.
For the issue of the Car Washing Bay, it would only be discussed and reviewed on the 1st AGM which could only happen in 12 to 16 months’ time.
At the time being, please be advised that washing of the car at the car park is not allowed. We seek for your co-operation to look for alternative washing outside the estate.
We sincerely apologise for any inconveniences caused.
