    Default Any Singapore Condos without main gate?

    Hi Brothers and Sisters here

    Has any one of you ever come across a condo anywhere in Singapore that has neither physical main gate (aka open concept type) nor smaller gate for human traffic, which mean it's open 24 hrs and only with two pairs of auto barriers (1 pair for car in and the other pair for car out) which response to transponder on car. Human traffic can just get into a condo from any part of the widely "opened" entrance with the security guy only can chase after ghost as the gate is too wide to take care by 1 or 2 guard on duty if there are too many people getting into the condo at the same time.

    Well, it's just like an expensive HDB, it's even worst than a DBSS and an EC.

    Have la... Low maintenance. Nothing wrong with that. Why pay so much for security just to press the button to lift up the barrier

    To add on the first thread, I mean a fully fenced up development but main entrance have no main gate, also no small gate. There is a back entrance with gate, fully closed, mainly for rubbish truck to come in.

    If sack the security, more Tom Dick and Harry will just walk in even freely. And also for driving visitors coming in, have to bring down transponder to open barrier for friends one by one. Can't imaging...

    Many of the small estates are like that (as far as I know)................
    Avoid because maintenance fees for these small estates are very high once the property is >10 years old............

    And Security guards fees will become a lot more expensive as Progressive Wage aka Multi-tier Min Wage is going to be introduced to the guards soon............

    Overall there is going to be large increase in inflation for the next 5 years (and hence large increase in Maintenance fees (especially for small estates)) because of implementation of Progressive Wages to (1) Cleaners, (2) Gardeners/landscapers, (3) Security Guards (who are all needed regardless of the size of your estate!)
