Re: Purchasing a leasehold property in Singapore

taxico:
HDB will likely put those old flats under SERS and it goes back to the state at some point after everyone's moved out.

they'll give you a replacement flat, but you're still allowed to sell the old flat after SERS announcement... up until a certain given date (about 1 year).

the new project typically is near the old one, but this isn't guaranteed (eg. no suitable land available).

if the replacement project is a attractive, the selling price (during the grace period) is typically about 10-30k above compensation value. more if it's a really well situated site.

i wouldn't touch those flats if i were you... primarily because they're old, not because i'm an expat investor.

imo, the state will likely tender some buildings out and pull down others. you may want to check the masterplan.

Re: Open a Sole Proprietorship on a DP and getting the LoC

Varcelos:
Just an update to my situation. For recap, I am going to SG on a DP pass and would like to continue to work for my clients In Europe. For this, I need to have the means to invoice them for my services.

Double-Taxation: If I create a single-ownership company in my home country (Portugal) and invoice them through it while in Singapore, I am liable for double-taxation. I already explained the situation above and believe this is specific to the portuguese agreement with SG regarding DT. This is law, it's not grey.

ACRA: If I create a sole-proprietorship in Singapore, under my own name, under the New Business Registration Act of 2014 I do not have to register with ACRA. If you find this interesting, please ask ACRA or read Part I of the Act to know if it applies to you.

MOM: As for the need for a LOC from MOM for a sole-proprietorship, I took a cue from you Strong Eagle, and got pleasantly surprised. My advice is that, if your situation is similar to mine, you inquire them specifically for your need for a work permit or work pass if you are solely working through self-employment in SG for foreign clients with no representation in SG. I believe this is grey.

IRAS: I have not contacted them yet, but since I won't make more then 1 million SGD/year, it seems I do not need to register with them. I just have to fill the normal yearly tax file.

Re: Purchasing a leasehold property in Singapore

PNGMK:
You might find that the banks won't mortgage with less than X years left (I can't remember what it is; it used to be quite high 60 years but of course as the HDB's have aged the banks have had to relax). Personally I see this whole thing as a GIANT clusterphuck waiting to happen. If there's one thing that might cause Sinkies to sink the PAP this will be it. The PAP loves to claim "80 percent own their own homes" but that's balderdash; they have a lease for a house that's owned by state. There are some short lease holds left in the Geylang Bahru area now; (like 10 or less years) - the price is simply a multiple of the monthly rent... (i.e. 10 years x 12 x rent). This is where your price target should be. Do not assume any lease extension; the government has not explicitly stated they will NOT renew leases but 'no one knows' with these particular blocks (Jln Bahagia area is in a similar sticky situation).

To answer your question; you might buy it but can you sell it in a decade?

Re: Purchasing a leasehold property in Singapore

sundaymorningstaple:
Once a home has only 40 years left on a 99 year lease, you will have an almost impossible task of selling it. For a profit or otherwise as everybody knows that unless the Government or the owner ponies up the clams to get a new leasehold Strata Title, (very few have done so successfully) the unit will revert back to the government. I know I sure would not. But I'm not a gambler either.

Hi Taxico,

I am an intern of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I have not cooperated with a foreign department thus far. Consequently, this research is exclusively conducted by me. I am planning to get in touch with some embassies, though. Does this answer your question?

Greetings,

Hi, I went for the 3rd Sep interview and medical on the 5th Sep. Received an email yesterday (tuesday 27 sep) informing me to head over to STC to submit my remaining documents. My notice period is available immediately and I did not have any additional medical checks.

Hope they will inform me the training dates when I submit my documents.

Wow I think you're the first person from our interview batch to get any news? Congrats! When are you submitting the documents?

Anyone else heard anything from SIA?

Got my confirmation yesterday through sms.

For those on review , do not lose hope!

I went for the July interview, was put on review and received email to go for review only around a week before the next intake, September interview 2nd day.

Medical check up is the following Monday or Tuesday after the management round day.

Hope this information helps :) Good luck.
When are you starting :-)

Purchasing a leasehold property in Singapore

Nihility:
I'm looking at entering the property market here. I've done a ton of research - likely not enough - but am looking at getting various perspectives, i.e. locals, expats etc on the purchase of a particular type of property.

The Tiong Bahru leasehold, pre-war flats of blocks 55-82 are nearing a solid 40+ years into their 99 years. Prices have held quite well, increasing significantly during the last boom but have come back a bit in recent years. Basically, the gahmen owns them and can take them back at the end of their lease. However, due to heritage overlay of the area some 15 years ago, they are protected from being en-bloc, but what will happen when they're down to 30 or so years?

With the understanding that a home is typically an appreciating asset, should these blocks be seen more like a car, decreasing in value to the point where they become worthless; or will the gahmen put plans in place to fix this potential problem? I dunno...

Anyway, to the point, would you consider buying one of these as an entry level into the housing market?
