Hi Ryan,

If today I buy a condo apartment for $1200psf and 2yrs later it get en-bloc. Is it possible that I might get back less than I pay for the apartment (excluding the renovation cost)?


Hi Ryan, Is SSD of 3 years counts when we exercise or after completion of purchase?

Hi Aizen! SSD is counted from the purchase date. According to IRAS website:
In most instances, the date of purchase/ acquisition of a property refers to:
Date of Acceptance of the Option to Purchase* or
Date of Sale and Purchase Agreement or
Date of Agreement for Lease (for new HDB flat) or
Date of Transfer where the above (a), (b) and (c) are not applicable
*Excludes an option to Purchase that is subject to the execution/ signing of the Sale and Purchase Agreement
