Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP)?

In Singapore, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) provides temporary occupancy permits (TOPs) to homeowners who just built their homes so they can move in before the Certificate of Statutory Completion (CSC) is issued.The TOP certificate only indicates that the building looks suitable for occupancy and it does not provide assurance of complete compliance with the Building Control Act.

What is a Certificate of Statutory Completion (CSC)?

A CSC is a document that confirms that all the structural aspects of a building have been fulfilled. It’s essential to obtain this license in order to legally occupy and make use of your property. A CSC certifies that all the necessary building requirements have been satisfied and is an official permit acknowledging this fact. It’s important to ensure that one is secured after construction has been completed in order to protect all parties involved.

What is Management Corporation Strata Title?

An MCST is responsible for managing condominiums and other similar compounds that have multiple owners and shared facilities. It organizes the necessary maintenance services and ensures the smooth running of the property. Strata Titles Estates are regulated and maintained by MCSTs (Management Corporation Strata Titles) under the Building Maintenance and Strata Management Act (BMSMA). The Management Corporation Strata Title (MCST) is empowered by law to oversee any ancillary corporations and control shared resources and facilities in a strata development. They also maintain jurisdiction over subsidiary organizations’ regulations.

What does leasehold property in Singapore mean?

When you own a leasehold property in Singapore, you are given the right to utilize the land for a specific period of time. Singapore’s residential and commercial properties have leases of either 99 or 999 years. The owner of these leaseholds will not be able to keep the property when the tenure runs out. Thus, it’s important to have an understanding of the terms and conditions set out in these leases.

What does freehold property in Singapore mean?

In Singapore, freehold properties are seen as a more desirable form of real estate compared to leaseholds. Ownership of these properties can extend indefinitely and does not need to be returned to the state after 99 years. Owning freehold land in Singapore is highly sought after due to its scarcity. The government has the power to acquire it with the Land Acquisition Act, which makes it even more limited.

How is rental stamp duty in Singapore calculated?

Singapore’s rental stamp duty is calculated from the Average Annual Rent (AAR). When the AAR surpasses $1,000 and/or the lease duration is 4 years or less, it’s compulsory to pay 0.4% of total rent for that period. If the Annual Accessible Rent is S$1,000 or less and the lease duration is four years or fewer, then the stamp duty payable would be four times the AAR..

What should I consider before buying a second property in Singapore?

If you have decided to invest in a second property in Singapore, then you should be aware of the eligibility criteria, affordability and intended use. It’s important to make sure that you have enough funds when making a downpayment and no loans against your current property. Thus, it’s essential to do thorough research before investing for a second home! Don’t forget about the additional buyers’ stamp duty of 17% too!It is important to familiarize yourself with the housing rules in Singapore, as it is not possible for one person to purchase a HDB if they already own a private property.

What is Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR)?

Lenders use TDSR to evaluate your financial situation and assess whether granting you a loan would be a risky decision. That is why it’s essential to consider your total debt obligations when applying for home loan, as it could affect the amount you are allowed to borrow. It is a cap on the total amount an individual can borrow when applying for a home loan. To protect borrowers from financial burden, a maximum limit has been set for total debt servicing ratio (TDSR). This means that such debts should not exceed more than 55% of the borrower’s monthly income for both public and private properties. With this measure, it’ll help ensure that loan repayments fit comfortably into their budget.

What is the Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio?

Lenders use a measure called the Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio to determine the amount of risk for granting a loan. The current LTV limits are 75% for the primary mortgage, 45% for any secondary mortgages and 35% for subsequent mortgages.  Loan-to-value ratio is essentially calculated by dividing the amount of loan that a borrower takes out by the market value of the asset being used as collateral. This ratio, expressed as a percentage, reflects the maximum borrowing potential of an individual based on their asset’s worth. Banks tend to be more willing to grant loans when the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio is low, as their risk will be reduced in this situation. Furthermore, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) dictates certain ratios that must be adhered to when considering loans in Singapore. The LTV ratio aids both borrowers and lenders in deciding the amount that a borrower can borrow, as well as what cash or CPF Ordinary Account (OA) funds need to be paid in advance for securing a loan.

What is joint tenancy?

In Singapore, joint tenancy is a type of ownership structure where two or more people possess the same piece of real estate. Each person’s share is indistinguishable and they each possess an equal part in the property. This makes joint tenancy convenient for those who want to own property together. If one of the joint owners passes away, the surviving co-owners will automatically take over their share. To own a property together with your spouse and child in Singapore, you can make it a joint tenancy by lodging a declaration with the Singapore Land Authority. Guaranteeing that each partner has rightful ownership of their share, this would also enable them to bequeath it to a chosen beneficiary upon passing away.

What is tenancy in common?

Tenancy in Common (TIC) is a type of concurrent ownership of Singaporean property that can involve 2 or more people. Each co-owner owns an individual, but combined stake in the real estate which can be shared equally or unequally. By owning a property jointly, each co-owner is accountable for their corresponding portion of the asset and any related liabilities. Furthermore, this form of ownership does not have the rights of survivorship associated with it. When one of the co-owners passes away, their share does not automatically pass to the other co-owner(s). Instead, it is passed on to their estate. This contrasts with joint tenancy, which grants all family members equal ownership of the house.
