  • Signing of the transfer document by seller
  • Signing of the mortgage document/agreement by buyer, if applicable

The seller in the mean time will receive his cheque for the net sale proceeds if there are any.

The refunding of his CPF monies will be arranged by HDB to be credited back into his CPF account within seven working days from the date of completion of the resale transaction.
