Hi, can you explain what does “less cpf payment from buyer 1 – $1260″ and less cpf payment from buyer 2 – $1050” mean and calculated?

Hi, if I have the intention to upgrade from a HDB to a condo that has yet to TOP, do I have to sell my HDB while waiting for the condo to be completed? Else, I would be incurring ABSD?

Hi Justin, yes. You would have to pay the ABSD first which can be refunded should you successfully sell your HDB within 6 months of the condo top date. Otherwise, the HDB would need to be sold first to avoid paying the ABSD
