For Singaporean 2nd property purchase with no outstanding mortgage, typical breakdown as follows:

Cash 5% (option fee + option exercise fee)
Cpf 15%
Max bank loan 80%
Stamp duties (bsd+absd) and legal fees approx 10%

Yes can use CPF for stamp duties provided monies are sufficient. May I have more info and requirements about your plans so to make better recommendations? Thanks and look forward to value-add to your housing plans.

-- HDB BTO 4rm Sellers Mr. Farvin & Ms. Sel --

Ivan was the first agent that we met up with and right from the offset we had good vibes as he has a friendly personal approach, detailed working style and focuses on building the long-term relationship.

Our unit comes with its challenges but Ivan remained positive and had no qualms committing to our plans right from the start. It took only 6 weeks of aggressive marketing for him to secure a good offer which was a pleasant surprise in the end.

Ivan was always responsive and we had no worries to pass him the house keys. The whole process was transparent and hassle free, and he was always thinking from our point of view on how to make life easier for the client. He is a committed professional and has fast execution, so we felt assured that things are done well and we can entrust the sale process entirely to him.

--- HDB Flat Upgraders Mr. & Mrs. Lee ---

We decided to engage Ivan as our agent as we were impressed with how he answered the enquiries on property guru website.

He has helped us to find our ideal unit and also sold our current unit. He was very patient and never pushy when we were looking for our ideal unit. He would tell us that it is always important to find a unit that we really liked.

When it comes to selling of our unit, he was always prompt in arranging for viewings and he also tried his best to arrange and consolidate the viewings due to our time constraints. He is a reliable and prompt agent and is always willing to clarify any concerns and questions that we have.

Thanks Ivan! :)

Your posting is clear and concise. I hereby assume you are a Singapore Citizen, as PR has to dispose off HDB flat upon key collection.
According to your situation, your concerns are as follow:

(1) You can loan up to max of 80%, since this is your first housing loan.
(2) CPF OA can be used for the following: BSD, ABSD & legal fees, 15% of the purchase price as long as your CPF is sufficient. And has to inform the lawyer during the first meet.
(3) Option deposit & exercise fee must be in cash (5%)
(4) Although CPF OA can be used to pay for BSD & ABSD, you have to pay in cash first then reimburse from CPF.

Important note:
You have to set aside BRS (Basic Retirement Sum) in your CPF OA; 2017 = $83k, 2018 = $85.5k, for 2nd property using CPF.

Cash needed for $650k property:
(1) Option (5%): $32,500
(2) Valuation: $350 (dependent on each bank)
(3) BSD: $14,100
(4) ABSD: $45,500
(5) Mortgage Stamp Duty: $500
(6) Legal fee: $2k~$3.5k (dependent on each firm)

Estimate you will need $94,950 in cash at least.

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.
