Useful Resources by The Line @ Tanjong Rhu
Moving into a New Condo Apartment
It is always a joy seeing excited first-time homeowners moving into their brand new apartment unit here at The Line @ Tanjong Rhu. After all, there is always that element of joy as you take a new step into a brand new level of property ownership in Singapore.
At the same time, there is also an element of uncertainty for those entering into this new adventure. It is for this reason, we’ve prepared a useful resource page to help such owners take note of several important resources available online to help them prepare for this wonderful journey ahead.
First Things First, Get the Official Documents Out of the Way
Right at the start, we want to make sure we’ve taken care of anything official and legal to avoid unexpected headaches down the road. If you haven’t already done so, you should appoint a CEA-registered real estate agent to assist you with the various legal documents.
The benefit of working with a professional agent is you don’t need to source for a lawyer as they’ll help you gather all the relevant parties to proceed with the different paperwork. Saving you both time and the hassle of searching in an industry you’re unfamiliar with.
In addition, most agencies are trained to help you calculate the mortgage you’re eligible for (if required) and how many stamps duties you’re liable for. This prevents any unforeseen financial commitment as your agent will work out the right sums for you including the legal and agent fees involved in the transaction.
With that out of the way, you’ll need to settle your utilities and change of address. Unfortunately, you can’t appoint your agent to help you with either of these as you’re required to go down in person to facilitate the change request.
Without a doubt, the Singapore Power Group is one of the first places to visit as you need to ensure there’s electricity and water flowing into your apartment. If you’re a new account registrant, there will be an additional step of opening a new account.
Do take note that with the launch of the open electricity market (OEM), there are now many more retailers which will give you better savings as compared to using the default SP Group.

Change of Address
With that settled, the next thing to tackle is your change of address. This is a step that is often troublesome for many homeowners as there are many different organisations to write to. There is your bank, your telcom, membership groups, and much more.
But one of the more important ones to settle is the official and legal institutions. Thankfully, making a visit to your nearest neighbourhood police post will help settle most of them. We’ve also included a link to the online eCitizen portal with a list of items to prepare.
Singapore PR & Citizenship Application
For residents who have been working and living in Singapore for at least 5 years and are planning to obtain citizenship or permanent residence status, the procedure might be daunting. There are a number of steps and procedures involved as well as qualifying criteria in place that is kept secret from the public.
To improve your chances of succeeding in your application, there are specialised agencies who can assist you by reviewing your application and advising on the best steps and course of action to get approved.
Beautifying Your New Condo Home
With the legal stuff out of the way, we can move on to the more exciting stuff… beautifying and decorating your new condo apartment.
Interior Design Ideas
And for that, one of the first places we encourage our residents to visit are the various online portals for their interior design tips, recommendations, and beautiful home designs.
One of our favourites is a premium interior design publisher with over 30 years of experience in the industry. As they share a variety of advice in the different aspects of home designing, flooring design, and bathroom design among many others.
Adding Storage Space
While most of our units come with ample storage spaces thanks to the beautiful furnishing, we understand there are times when homeowners want to add more storage options to their homes. Especially for cabinet furniture around the living and dining room.
To that end, there are many great online furniture shops around where you can shop for a brand new coffee table, bookshelf, and other display cabinets. There’s even a special new account creation discount for first-time buyers.
Cleaning Up the Apartment
Another important aspect of any new home is to make it fit for living first. Oftentimes, with the large volume of furniture moving into the place, there tend to be bits and pieces of dirt and dust accumulating. To avoid having to deal with such extra headaches, we recommend engaging a professional cleaning company to come in and handle these menial activities for you.
And while it’s our own preference, we like to work with carpet cleaning companies that offer a wide range of cleaning services especially moving forward for occasions where we might need their services again.
Adding Shade to Windows
One of the biggest concerns most Singaporeans have about our lovely country is that it is too hot. No surprises as we’re situated near the equator and temperatures are expected to be higher here. But that doesn’t mean our homes have to suffer, not when window film technology has improved and are great at reflecting heat and offers UV ray protection.
That’s where a solar film specialist like Resolvio can help make your place much more comfortable throughout the day. With a wide range of brands and solutions like 3M window films and hybrid films, they guarantee a solution for you.
Looking for a Project in a Different Location?
While The Line is a fantastic project with the beautiful East Coast Park at your doorsteps, we understand everyone has their own preferred location.
To make it absolutely convenient for visitors to our website, we’ve included several other exciting new launches around Singapore’s coastal area you might want to consider.
