Hi Lawrence Chee, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

Blk 73 Eng Watt Street was completed in 1937. It was previously owned under Singapore Investment Trust. It was subsequently taken over by HDB on 1 January 1967.

Hope this answers your question.

Yes. As explained above, those older units taken over by HDB at their mid-point will have their lease start (99 years) at the point of HDB takeover. I am specialised in HDB transactions. Do contact me at 93375051 for a free and non obligatory discussion on this.
