It’s never easy, the thought of handing over your property for rent. There is a constant stream of worry; as a landlord you are stressed over the legitimacy of your tenants or the constant upkeep that you will need to do.
Roomz Handles It In The Smartest and Most Trusted Way
Roomz handles all those worries and more! Roomz will be the person in charge who will screen tenants before signing the tenancy agreement. When a potential tenant shows serious interest in renting a room under Roomz, we will take copies of their NRIC or passport. Not only that, Roomz will also seek verification by asking copies of the company offer letter, university or college offer letter for verification purposes.
To ensure that there are no illegal activities, Roomz will also make calls to companies and universities to check that all the information provided is correct. Should the information fail to correspond, the tenant will be immediately rejected by Roomz. Roomz also provides a cover, a protection of sorts, where landlords will be given the safety deposit should the tenant decides not to turn up on their check in dates.
Many a time, landlords face the same situation; they get a dozen calls regarding their property but at the promised date on which the tenants are supposed to make payments for deposits and such, they disappear and are never to be heard off again by the landlord. When this happens, the landlord has to go through the entire process all over again. With Roomz, the landlord does not need to go through the fuss, and they will be able to hold the safety deposit if the tenant does not turn up on check in date, or if their information does not match the tenancy agreement and more.
Roomz also retains the right to check up on the tenants to make sure that there are no illegal or immoral activities happening at the apartments. Should the community manager finds anything amiss, Roomz holds the right to terminate the tenancy agreement. To ensure that the tenant pays the rent on time, Roomz reserves the right to terminate the tenancy agreement if the tenant is late in making the payment for 3 months consecutively.
A Fully Managed Service For Landlords
There are so many steps Roomz takes to ensure that the tenant who is renting your apartment is the right tenant for you. From ensuring the cleanliness with reminders and weekly cleaning to ensuring payments are made on time, Roomz deals with all the day-to-day headaches that a landlord will have to deal with.

Roomz: The Only Way To Rent, Hassle Free
Imagine being a tenant. You can’t afford renting the whole house, but you don’t have any friends who would rent with you. Not only that, searching for a suitable place is hard as landlords are always embellishing their properties and setting strict guidelines on who they prefer as renters. And let’s not forget all the scheduling, and rescheduling of meeting times. Signing of multiple agreements. The dreaded agent’s fees. The huge deposit. It’s a nightmare, really.
But there is a simple solution to all this: Roomz
Roomz offers quality rooms for rent with flat monthly rate. All our rooms come with standardized furnitures, utilities and services that provides our customers with peace of mind.

Personalizing your home might not be as difficult as you may think. It can, in fact, be a fun learning curve that allows you to express your creativity through your living space. Done right, you won’t even need a fancy interior designer or costly contractor to add a little character to your slice of paradise on earth. Here are a few cheap, DIY and incredibly effective hacks for turning your room into your very own safe-haven.
Add Some Flavour
You can almost never go wrong playing with colors (almost), especially if you’re limited to a specific budget and resources for interior adjustments. Through the power of matching color combinations or dashes of bright tones, sections of your room can be made to look so impressive that you might just find yourself considering a career in interior design instead.
Try treating the walls and primary corners of your home with a neutral series of colors for that added minimalist or contemporary vibe after which you can also break the monotony with a splash of something bright. A soft brown, neutral scheme combined with a sudden bright-blue sofa or settee might be a good example of this.
Colors are an effective way to express your personality from the get-go. Use a crazy color scheme for a livelier approach or quieten the mood through consistency and tranquil tones. Your room is your canvas, enjoy the process.
Crank Up the Comfort
The level of comfort in your home can have a direct impact on projecting a friendly and warm personality. If this sounds like you, then it’s time for a spot check on the fluffiness of your pillows and the bounciness of your sofa. You’ll want your room to be the kind where friends come for a visit and end up dozing off in a blissful daze.
There’s no need to fill up your space with wall-to-wall carpeting. Add more soft furnishings like a duvet cover or a rug to inject that extra dose of harmonious balance. You can find a range of affordable fluffy add-ons online or at the closest furniture shop. Make sure to pay attention to the colors, textures and sizes of these items as well.
A touch of nature is sometimes all you need to add a layer of detail to your room. Fauna, potted plants or large vases can all come in handy when you’re trying to go down the environmentally friendly route. There are dirt cheap yet intricately beautiful decorative plants available from various sources. Consider the shape and color of the vase or pot before making a purchase. From then on, it may just be a question of placement.
You could also DIY an attractive flower pot by decorating it with tape and acrylic paint. Pick bright and bold colors so they stand out against the backdrop of your walls. Another idea would be to make a pretty air plant terrarium which can be hung from a ceiling or a tall surface. Use a container which could be a glass globe, a mason jar or any other kind of glass container and combine it with some base materials including moss, gravel, glass pebbles and plants.
In the Details
Last but not least, it could be said that mother of all cheap and effective personalization lies in the detail that you decide to add to your room. One of the greatest things about having your own place is that you can generally go absolutely bonkers in terms of the creative and outstanding ideas you can introduce or try.
Geometric wall art ideas are plentiful and easily found online. You could attempt to make a memo board which can double up as a way to keep track of things you need to do while functioning as splendid decoration. You can use velcro mini fasteners, tie rolls, mini gold nails and a hammer to get this done.
You earn plus points for creative lighting. Have a go at creating a USB-powered lamp which can be crafted through an assortment of bottles and decorations like washi tape or acrylic paint as well as a USB LED touch lamp.
Make a macrame curtain using rope and a wooden rod which is a simple project once you get your head around how it works. Decide on the size and patterns to shape your knots into and watch your masterpiece unfold.
If all else fails, take a trip down to the closest market and see if you can purchase a bunch of cheap, matching pieces of artwork/decorations for your wall or accessorize your desk with handcrafted elements to compartmentalize items and stationaries. You don’t have to be as loaded as Warren Buffet or as talented as Picasso if you’re trying to impress your visitors. Most of the time, all you need is pure passion, creativity and a unique touch.
