    Below you can find frequently asked questions from property buyers, including our replies.

    Can foreigners buy property in Singapore?

    In short words, yes. But Singapore’s government is famously known for protecting its nation and citizens. Therefore, some restrictions apply. First of all, let’s have a look how Singapore’s Land Authority (SLA) defines non-foreigners:

    • Singapore citizens
    • Singapore companies
    • Singapore limited liability partnerships
    • Singapore societies

    Hence, if you don’t fall under any of these terms, you’re treated as a foreigner.

    Below I’ve listed the most common options you have when buying a property in Singapore, and what regulations you’re subject, in case you’re a foreigner.

    Buying landed property as a foreigner in Singapore

    If you want to buy a landed property, such as a villa with land, you first need to get approval under the Residential Property Act. The application can be made online, where each application is managed individually.

    According to the Residential Property Act, you can buy a house if you meet the following conditions:

    a. You’ve been a permanent resident (PR) for at least 5 years

    b. You make exceptional financial contributions to Singapore, where your tax roll plays a big role

    The regulations are a bit tough when buying landed property and many foreigners buy strata-titled properties instead, such as condominiums.

    Buying a condominium as a foreigner in Singapore

    You have no particular restrictions to buy condominiums as a foreigner in Singapore.

    In addition to regular condominiums, Singapore introduced so-called Executive Condominiums (ECs) a couple of decades back. The ECs are more luxurious and a preferred choice over the local HDB apartments, that are more modest and generally not available to foreigners.

    Just keep in mind that you can only buy ECs 10 years after completion.

    Another point worth mentioning is that Singapore charges a significantly higher capital gains tax, in case you trade property with a profit-seeking incentive. The assessments are made on an individual basis.

    What kind of property do foreigners need approval for before buying?

    Below I’ve listed the property types you can buy without the necessity to seek approval.

    • Vacant residential land
    • Terrace house
    • Semi-detached house
    • Bungalow/detached house
    • Shophouse (for non-commercial use)
    • Association premises
    • Place of worship
    • Workers dormitory/serviced apartments/boarding house (not registered under the provisions of the Hotels Act)
    • Strata landed house which is not within an approved condominium development under the Planning Act (eg. townhouse or cluster house)

    What kind of property can foreigners buy without approval?

    To make it more clear, below I’ve listed the property types that you can buy without the necessity to apply for approval:

    • Condominium units
    • Flat units
    • Strata landed house in approved condominium developments

    In addition, foreigners can acquire a leasehold estate in landed residential property for a term not exceeding 7 years, including any further term which may be granted by way of an option for renewal;

    • Shophouse (for commercial use)
    • Industrial and commercial properties;
    • Hotel (registered under the provisions of the Hotels Act); and
    • Executive condominium unit, HDB flat and HDB shophouse. (For this category, you may wish to find out more information on HDB eligibility guidelines at www.hdb.gov.sg or email HDB at [email protected])

    How high are the property taxes in Singapore?

    Singapore has introduced high taxes in the past years, to protect its local market and citizens. Below you can find the taxes you need to pay when buying property in Singapore.

    Buyer’s Stamp Duty (BSD) for foreigners

    The Buyer’s Stamp Duty increases progressively as follows:

    • 1% of the first SGD 180,000
    • 2% of the second SGD 180,000
    • 3% of the remaining value
    Example with the calculation of the Buyer’s Stamp Duty (BSD)

    With a property value of SGD 500,000, you need to pay the following BSD:

    SGD 180,000 * 1% + SGD 180,000 * 2% + SGD 140,000 * 3% = SGD 9600

    Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD) for foreigners

    In addition to the regular Buyer’s Stamp Duty, Singapore has followed the same path as Hong Kong and introduced an Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD).

    Singapore experienced rapidly increasing property prices in the first half of 2018 and increased the rate from 15% to 20% during the same year.

    Example with the calculation of the Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD)

    Let’s make things easy and use the same property value as in the above example, SGD 500,000. The total amount of the Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty and the BSD will be calculated as follows:

    BSD + ABSD = SGD 9600 + (SGD 500,000 * 20%) = SGD 109,600

    Are there any minimum investment requirement in Singapore?

    Indonesia and Malaysia have implemented minimum investment requirements towards foreigners, a measure to protect the local markets.

    However, Singapore has not adopted the same measures, but followed Hong Kong’s example, and increased the taxes instead.

    How high are the rental yields?

    Singapore ranks low in terms if rental yields, unfortunately. Yields average of around 3%, something that you can notice when reading about the listed properties above.

    Still, Singapore is a preferred location as it’s stable, has low taxes, and a proven track record. This is not the case with Cambodia, Vietnam, and Malaysia, which still have much to prove.
