This case raises the interesting issue of whether a mortgagee’s right to enter into possession of a mortgaged property upon the mortgagor’s default is subject to a prior and existing lease. The determination of this issue has important implications given Singapore’s sizeable rental market and the absence of prohibition against a landlord mortgaging a property that is already rented out.
