Hi, you guys will be able to purchase a EC under the condition that you dispose of the HDB flat. It is not possible to remove your wife name from the HDB as both of you form a family nucleus even though she is only an essential occupier.

If you are currently planning to go on a property journey selling/buying/renting/investing, I can be of assistance. Do feel free to reach out to me for more queries and assistance.

No, she will only be eligible to purchase a private residential property including resale ECs that are 5 years old. If the plan is to go for brand new EC, then you will be required to sell your current HDB.

I have been in the real estate business since 2009, with more than 14 years of experience serving the Singapore real estate market.

I am very active in the residential segment of Singapore real estate market, having transacted hundreds of deals from HDBs to private condominiums and landed properties in Singapore, and have handled many unique cases in sales and purchases as well as rental deals.

Over the years, I have also established a network reaching out to more than 9,400 expatriates, bringing my market presence to both in and outside of Singapore. This has created an additional exposure when I manage my client's portfolios, on top of the conventional on and offline platforms, where other estate agents are relying on. This has allowed me to consistently convert leads into results.

With an evolving market, where change is the only constant, I have also been investing in upgrading of my knowledge and skills sets to improve myself and meet the demands of current and future market.

Hi, new EC application are managed by HDB. As such, only 1st or 2nd timers can apply for it. As such, your wife does not qualify.

However, she can purchase a 5-year old or older EC or any other private apartment.

Please contact me so that I can be of further assistance.
Cheers!

Hi,

She cannot purchase new EC on her own name, as it is like buying new HDB where you need to fulfil HDB eligibility condition (ie both your names need to be included and you have to sell away the hdb flat). She can purchase resale EC of 5 years or private property on her sole name after MOP of 5 years no issue.

Hope the above clarifies. May I have more info and requirements about your plans so as to make better recommendations? Thanks and look forward to value-add to your housing plans.

Warm Regards,

Hi Sir,

For brand new EC, you will need to form a family nucleus with your wife and purchase together with her. This will mean that you will need to dispose off your HDB flat.

However, if she is purchasing a resale EC, she is able to purchase it under her own name without the need for Additional Buyer Stamp Duty. She can purchase immediately even if she is under the age of 35 years old as long as the MOP is met.

Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your intentions and assist you further!

Testimonial from Satisfied Clients

“I would like to recommend Nick Tan from SRI. Before we engaged Nick, we were working with another agent from a very popular property agency in February 2017. We decided to terminate the contract after 5 weeks of zero viewings and no paper advertisements. Basically, he was just waiting for phone calls. We engaged Nick on 20th April and by 10th of May, our unit was sold off. Why Nick? 1. He has good marketing strategies 2. He always kept us posted on what he did (communications!) 3. He made sure we understand the current market situation but he will consistently reassure us that the unit can be sold off 4. He is not greedy and trusting 5. He walks the talk”
Peter & Wendy (Property Seller)

I write to commend Nick Tan (R040814C). When my husband and I first met Nick, we were impressed by his drive, commitment, business acumen and strategical thinking, and decided to engage him. We were not disappointed. Nick sourced for prospective quality buyers in a targeted methodical fashion and was effective in connecting us with serious buyers, notwithstanding the fact that the search primarily took place over Dec – Feb (a traditional lull period). Throughout the transaction, he also gave us helpful advice in various aspects; the advice reflected his personal experience and expertise and was not simply regurgitated from public sources without any value-add. Further, Nick went beyond the call of duty of a competent professional. He had a sense of humanity in the way he interacted with myself and the other parties to the transaction such as my parents. As an example, my newborn daughter was warded into A&E on the completion date of the transaction; the care and concern that Nick showed went beyond the scope of work of an estate agent. I commend Nick for his capabilities and character, and would certainly wish to engage him for future property transactions.
Weilun & Benita (Property Seller)

“We are very grateful to Nick for his extensive marketing efforts. With his comprehensive marketing plan, he helped us to achieve a record selling price within 2 weeks of listing our property for sale! We highly recommend his service to anyone who is keen to sell their properties.”
Mr & Mrs Wong (Property Seller)

“Nick has conducted himself ethically and professionally when handling the sales of our property. Thanks to his patience and perseverance, we managed to secure a sales price beyond our expectations. We are very happy and satisfied with his services and will definitely recommend him to our friends and family in the future.”
Mr & Mrs Tan (Seller of Inter-Terrace House)

“Nick provides a delightful customer experience from day one when I engage him as my agent to look for a flat of my choice to the completion of the deal. He is competent, resourceful and has a pleasant manner to work with. He is the Agent of my choice in dealing with properties and I would highly recommend him to others who would appreciate an agent that takes care and can give the customer a peaceful mind.”

Selling your HDB is mandatory: To buy a brand new EC, you'll need to sell your current HDB flat.
Resale ECs as an option: If you prefer an EC, consider resale options that are over 5 years old. These allow your wife's solo purchase.

Hi,

Unfortunately she will not be able to purchase a new EC. She can look at resale condo and MOP-ed EC instead.

May I know which area you are looking at? I would be glad to assist:)

Testimonial from Satisfied Clients
-- My husband and I wish to commend the sincere attitude and good customer service rendered by
your staff Jenny, who handled the sale of our 5R HDB flat early this year. We have met several
agents but none as genuine as Jenny. Being a seller agent, she took our interest at heart in handling
the sale, unlike other agents who are self-interest. Jenny is punctual and prompt in the whole
dealings and we were convinced that such an agent is hard for find nowadays. Jenny is a
trustworthy, honest, sincere and hardworking agent. We are happy with her service and would
gladly recommend her to our friends in future. Jenny is an asset to Propnex and the organization
should value her. Thank you Jenny for her efforts--
Mr and Mrs Soo (HDB seller)

--Jenny is very committed and responsive to her clients and she has spent hours updating them and
looking out for great deals and even tailor-made property proposal geared towards their needs. Will
certainly refer her to others and will definitely approach her again in her future--
Nick and Kim (New launch buyer)

--Jenny did a great job helping my wife and I sell our unit. She took active steps to walk our
neighbourhood to understand what she was marketing. During the marketing period, she managed
potential buyers and provided timely updates and recommendations so we could stay on top of the
process. Overall, Jenny was professional and helped us to achieve a positive result which we are very
thankful for--
Aaron ( HDB seller)

--Jenny was very passionate and went the extra miles to help. Thanks to her professional advice and
recommendations, I had finally found my dream home--

Yvonne (New launch buyer)

--Appreciate Jenny's clear and prompt communication style with us and other stakeholders. She was
also patient and client-centered throughout the process of finding a home that met our criteria. As a
first-time home buyer, we appreciate how she went out of her way to explain the process and
answer questions we had--
