Hi Anonymous, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

There is no Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) for private properties. It only applies to HDB flats, DBSS and Executive Condominiums.

Hope this answers your question.

Hi,

There is no minumim occupational period for private properties , however should you consider to sell within the first 3 years if purchase, SSD applies. Hi there!

I will walk you through the entire process, shouldering all the responsibilities- assisting you all the way from finding the perfect unit to negotiating for the best price to post deal paperwork.

Dear sir/madam,

There is no minimum occupation period for private residential properties.

If you are looking to purchase a private residential property now, you need to take note that should you decide to sell within the first 3 years after exercising the Option To Purchase, seller's stamp duty is applicable.

If you are currently an owner of a private residential property and looking to sell, seller's stamp duty maybe applicable depending on which date did you purchase the property.

Are you planning something big? Perhaps we can look even further on how much savings can you work on for the right decisions made.

Good afternoon buyer,

There's no MOP applicable for private property purchase unlike HDB.

But do take note that if you wish to sell within 3 years of ownership, you will be subject to seller's stamp duty.

within 1 year - 12%
within 1 to 2 years - 8%
within 2 to 3 years - 4%

Hope my explanation helps!

May I know how can I value add into your property purchase?

Hear from you soon!

Hi,

Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) does not apply for private residential properties. There is no need for you to stay for xx years in them, and you can have the choice to rent out the unit upon getting the keys.

Should you need any further assistance in matters relating to property, please contact me at my mobile 9748 6305. I will be happy to assess and share with you the possibilities for you in the current market.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Dear Sir/Mdm,

Minimum Occupation Period is not applicable to private properties such as condos. However, there is a Seller's Stamp Duty that you will be liable if you were to sell your property within the 3 years period.

Therefore, ideally you should hold your property for more than 3 years before selling to maximise your returns.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further assistance!
