EXECUTIVE CONDOMINIUM (EC) were introduced in 1996 catering buyers who found private homes too expensive. While they were priced affordably compared to private condominium, the units came with limitations.
For instance, Executive Condominium in Singapore (EC) came with Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) of five years before they can be sold on the open market. Between the 6th & 10th year, only Singaporeans (SC) and Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR) can purchase them, while Foreigners can only do so after the 11th year. Findings show that EC is a practical alternative to private condominium. They also augur well for the EC market and buyers will feel even more confident that EC are reasonable investments to commit to. Upon after 5 years of MOP, prices of EC rose in tandem with private Condominium and even surpassed new EC.

Q : Why has a resale levy been imposed on second-timers purchasing an Executive Condominium (EC) unit from property developers? A : ECs are subject to similar initial eligibility and ownership restrictions as BTO flats. As a result, land earmarked for ECs is priced differently from land set aside for private housing developments, and EC buyers stand to benefit from new EC units being priced lower than comparable private hosing developments. In view of this and to ensure greater parity, second-timers buying EC units are now required to pay a resale levy, similar to second-timers purchasing BTO flats.
The resale levy amount depends on the flat type of the buyers’ first subsidised flat, and the prevailing resale levy policy when the first subsidized flat was sold. This requirement applies to ECs from sites launched for sale to property developers on or after 9 Dec 2013 (including projects whose tenders have not closed).
With the new restrictions set, EC developers can only launch their new EC after 15 months from land award or the completion of foundation works.
