This is only slightly related to this article, but could you also explore why some HDB flats have a time difference between their TOP date and lease commencement date?

There are some obvious examples, like SIT flats in Tiong Bahru that were built in the 1940s and whose leases commence in the 1960s and 1970s.

But then there are modern ones too. For example, there are 4 blocks in Hougang Ave 5 (313-316) that were built when the rest of the neighbourhood went up in 1982-1983 but have leases beginning in various dates of April 1993.

It’s a weird thing that’s made me more conscious of lease dates when buying my resale flat..
