If you have previously bought a new flat from HDB, Design, Build and Sell Scheme (DBSS) flat or Executive Condominium (EC) from a developer, or received a CPF Housing Grant, you might have to pay a resale levy when you purchase your next home.
Situations in which a resale levy is payable.
You need to pay a resale levy in either of these cases:
- You dispose of your subsidised flat and then buy a second subsidised flat from HDB
- You dispose of your subsidised flat and then buy an EC from a developer where the land sale was launched on or after 9 December 2013, including those where tenders were not closed, i.e. Westwood Avenue, Canberra Drive and Anchorvale Crescent
You need not pay a resale levy if you are buying any of these:
- Design, Build and Sell Scheme (DBSS) flat from a developer
- EC from a developer; where the land sale was launched before 9 December 2013
- HDB resale flat
- Private residential property
Resale Levy Payable
|First Subsidized Flat Tyoe||Amount of Resale Levy Payable under Revised Policy (From 3 Mar 2006)*|
*only applicable for 1st subsidized flat sold on/after 3 March 2006
Paying the Resale Levy
The resale levy payable is determined at the point you book your second subsidised flat. It applies regardless of ownership type (joint-tenancy or tenancy-in-common) or shared interest in the flat.
Payment can only be made by way of your flat sale proceeds and/ or cash. HDB mortgage financing will not be extended to the payment of a resale levy.
