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 TyoeAmount of Resale Levy Payable under Revised Policy (From 3 Mar 2006)*
Executive Flat$50,000

*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.
