Condo and HDB rents, leasing volume rise again in October
Rents for both Real estate Board apartments and condo systems remained to increase in October, while rental volume expanded for the second month running, according to flash information from property portal SRX Home launched on Wednesday (Nov 11).

With regards to a basic OTP, buyers of brand-new exclusive residences have 3 weeks to schedule their right to buy a building from a developer in return for a money downpayment, which is up to 5 per cent of the cost of the device. If the purchaser does not work out the right to buy, he might surrender 25 per cent of the booking cost.
Yet some programmers had been reissuing OTPs to purchasers, providing even more time to line up the funds required to make the purchase as well as avoid paying the additional purchaser’s stamp duty (ABSD).
” As a lot of buyers have actually not been approved an expansion of their OTPs, some have actually marketed their houses to stay clear of paying the ABSD when they bought a brand-new condo. They have actually consequently rented a system while they wait for the conclusion of their brand-new home,” Ms. Sunlight claimed.
