biggest worry with commercial en bloc unit is whether it can be rented out while waiting. a lot of those on the list are strata titled, old malls with a lack of strategy. a lot of talk about en bloc, but very hard to find a buyer these days also . sim lim square themselves couldn’t go through twice. unlike residential en bloc which is a lot more straight forward. people always need a place to stay so it’s easier to rent. commercial on the other hand is another story.

Any explanation why are commercial properties subject to the same 80% support before an en bloc sales can proceed for buildings that older than 10 years since the intention of the law was not to cause hardship to folks that have strong sentimental attachment to the homes they live in?

Hey! A collective sale’s outcome is very impactful considering how it forces every owner, even those unwilling to sell, to accept the outcome. If an owner truly wants to sell, nothing is stopping them – a collective sale isn’t necessary. So for a decision to be made that leads to such a impactful outcome, a high threshold is required. Commercial units can also be sentimental for certain owners. For example, they might have regular customers visiting their shop there often due to their locale. They might have been operating at the same place for decades. Another example – new owners may have also done renovations and invested their time and money into the unit. Having a low threshold for a collective sale can easily derail these plans, creating more uncertainty for business owners who rely on the property to do business. As such, we think this is why the 80% threshold doesn’t just apply to residential market.
