Amid persistently high inflation rates coupled with rising oil prices, businesses are now looking at higher utilities and petrol costs, as well as labour costs. Landlords, too, will have to face higher utility and maintenance costs when their contracts are rolled over to the 2HFY2022 and FY2023.

With most Singapore REITs (S-REITs) as landlords, operational costs in maintaining the common areas, will have to be borne as well.
