Hi Anonymous, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

A diplomatic clause in a tenancy agreement where the landlord gives special permission to an expatriate tenant to terminate the tenancy before expiry in the event the tenant has to leave Singapore due to work assignment or layoff by the employer. It does not apply when the tenant resigns on his/her own accord. If your tenant breaks the lease via a diplomatic clause, then you must return the 2-month deposit. Otherwise, you are entitled to forfeit the deposit.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

A usual tenancy agreement drafted out by an agency will usually not allow resignation of job to be included in the diplomatic clause, nevertheless, should the tenant be bent on leaving, what are the chances that he or she will leave for good without your knowledge should you decide to pursue the full legal consequences in breaching the tenancy agreement? Perhaps it could be a better idea to work things out with current tenant and see how to strike a win win situation.
