Hi Ms. Low,

Resale levy only applies if you get your 2nd subsidized housing (BTO/EC with resale levy/resale hdb with grant). If your intention is just to sell this resale flat and not purchase any of the above, no levy will apply.

Thanks and may I understand your housing requirements further so to make better recommendations? Look forward to value-add to your housing plans further.

Warm Regards,

Hi Lilian

If you are not buying another flat direct from HDB, resale levy will not be applicable.

Seller stamp duty will apply if your flat is sold within 5 years.

You may email to gavin.ng@orangetee.com if your have further question.


YT Tan (陈永达)
Good morning Lilian,

As you had enjoyed a subsidised HDB in 1992, you will be subject to resale levy in the event you apply BTO/ SBF or EC projects (some dont need to pay resale levy).

In addition, you wont be subject to seller's stamp duty as you own it for more than 4 years.

Hi Lilian,

Resale levy is NOT applicable to you unless you are buying a BTO directly from HDB or buying a new Executive Condo. If you sell your current flat and purchase another resale HDB flat or private property, no resale levy is to be paid.

Please feel free to contact me so that I can assist you further!

Hi Lilian,

You'll only be subjected to resale levy if you get a new HDB flat or EC unit next time.

Feel free to contact me at your convenience, and we can carry on from there.

Hi Ms Lilian,

Thanks for your post in Propertyguru.

The great news for you is you do not have to pay any levy for the selling of your current HDB. Since you have already bought it for 10 years, then you would have fulfilled your Minimum Occupation Period of 5 years.

The issue that we need to look at will be your future plans after selling this house. As you have taken a brand new house from HDB before, so if you wish to purchase another new HDB flat, then you will be subjected to resale levy and the amount of the resale levy to pay will depend on the house you first bought in 1992.

Maybe I can suggest we can actually meet up for a coffee to discuss about this. No worries as there are no obligations and we can just take it as a chat. You can also ask me any further questions that you may have and I can also provide you more advice based on your future plans. Nowadays buying and selling a property in Singapore is really not just about buying and selling so straightforward. I will take the chance to share more insights with you when we meet.

Over time I have served many clients and many of them have become my friends and some of them have left testimonials for me. You may take a look at my website. www.jeffreyheng.com. I was also very honoured to have won the Silver Award for Best Client Service during the last National Real Estate Congress. I believe I can definitely provide you with the same level of service and hopefully even better!

Looking forward to hear from you soon! Cheer.

Best Regards,
