-- EC Sellers, Private Property Buyers Dr. Chan & Ms. Xie --

I would like to compliment Mr Ivan Ng for his professional work and effort.I sent my first post in Jan 2019 and Ivan replied promptly, so I have decided to contact Ivan for follow up. My EC was not ready for sale due to MOP (another 3 months from Jan) at that time and Ivan was able to give me advices on how to proceed from there. Initially we have decided to try to write to HDB for early sale but since it was only 3 months left, eventually we waited for another 3 months while we looked for our next property. Ivan was able to arrange for new property showroom appointment at a timely manner while helping us to list for our EC for sale. We were a bit worried when our EC sale time was longer than expected due to trade war, but Ivan was able to reassure us that our EC would sell. By November, he managed to secure a buyer for our EC. Thank you.

Hi Ms. Nicole,

Whether you are applying any mortgage loan, the following expenses are needed based on the $850,000:
1) Buyer stamp duty : $20,100
2) Additional Buyer stamp Duty: $170,000 unless your nationality are one of the five countries which has Free Trade Agreement with Singapore:
United States, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. You shall be exempted from this Additional Buyer Stamp Duty if your current residence status belongs to any of these mentioned countries.
3) Legal Fee : $2,500~$3,000 dependent on individual law firm charges.

Payment on the unit:
Since your intention of purchase is a resale condominium, the whole process shall be around 12 weeks.
1% (cash) upon booking of unit,
4% (cash) to exercise OTP (option to Purchase) within 14 or 12 days dependent on the OTP offered from seller.
90% pay on completion day (12 weeks from receiving OTP). You shall also receive your keys on completion day.
Your lawyer supposed to advise you on the payment mode, such as cashier order or bank TT etc.

It is best you could use cashier order to make your 1% payment so as to have the proof payment rather than handover cash. You are supposed to handover the cashier order to seller and not the agent.
As a precaution, you can ask for the evidence of ownership.

Hope the above answer to your main concerns, but if there are more queries, please feel free to contact me at 90110636, or email: ling.ck7@gmail.com if more information is needed.
I'll be glad to assist.
