The Resale Levy on Executive Condominiums (EC) is based on a percentage of the market value of your flat. The rate is 5% per annum, and the levy is deducted from your sale proceeds. It is not applicable to the first-time buyer of a subsidised public housing property.
When buying your second EC, you may be eligible for a Half-Housing Grant. The grant is worth $30,000. In addition, you can apply for a proximity housing grant. This type of EC is designed for the sandwich class. They are a hybrid between a private condo and a HDB flat.
Second-timers who apply for a unit in an EC project launched before 9 Dec 2013 are not required to pay the resale levy. However, those who apply for a new EC project after this date will have to pay it.
Resale levy is also not payable on the second property you buy. However, it will be imposed if you sell your subsidized first flat.
