Buying an Executive Condominium from Open Market

Executive Condominium (EC) owners who have occupied their EC and met the 5-year minimum occupation period (MOP) can sell their EC in the open market. The 5-year MOP is computed from the date of issuance of Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) in respect of each EC.

After the 5-year MOP, from 6th to 10th year, EC can be sold in the open market to those who can meet the following eligibility conditions.

  • Citizenship
  • Family Nucleus
  • CPF Housing Grant

From 11th year, all restrictions will be lifted. Foreigners and corporate bodies can buy ECs in the open market from 11th year of the EC project.

Citizenship

You must be a Singapore Citizen (SC) or a Singapore Permanent Resident (SPR) in order to buy a EC in the 6th to 10th year occupation period
Foreigners and corporate bodies can buy ECs in the open market from 11th year of the EC project. All restrictions will be lifted from 11th year onwards

Family Nucleus

You need not form a family nucleus to buy a EC from the open market.
