Compared to the third quarter of 2018, partial sales were 281 in the fourth quarter of 2017, before the introduction of additional cooling measures. The tax is not levied on the value of the sales contract under this provision though: This is because the ABSD refund only applies to the disposal of your first property and, in this case, under-sale property is your second property. Simply put, a partial sale is the secondary sale of a unit before it is completed. Since the project is still under construction and the Legal Completion Certificate (CSC) has not yet been issued, Buyer A must first inform the developer (usually through his representative) of the planned under-sale to a subsequent buyer, such as Buyer B. Buyer A then enters into a purchase option with a sub-sale clause with Buyer B. „… where the parties have entered into a sale on the condition that such a sale is subject to the authorization of another authority over which the parties have no control, that condition is a condition that contract law characterizes as a „conditional condition“ whose effect is that the contract is not effective unless the condition is met. In the third quarter of 2018, Singapore recorded 81 partial sales transactions for private property, compared to 2,672 resale transactions over the same period. So why is there under-sales? In a chilly market (like today), potential buyers could discover sub-sales units that have good value in otherwise out-of-stock projects.

It is essential to determine whether certain measures or inaction are tantamount to rural development, since onshore rural development may trigger the under-sales provisions set out in Chapter 2, Part 4A of the Act, which may result in an additional tariff obligation. In a situation of under-sale, the original buyer/buyer (buyer A) must have already signed a sales contract (S-P contract) with the developer and have paid the stamp duty due. After Buyer B writes the fresh S-P agreement that is in his or her name, he/she becomes the owner and receives the developer`s keys after the announcement of the empty possession of the unit.
The sub-sale provisions of the Duties Act 2000 (Act) are considered to be partial sales of land for the processing of certain transactions. Under these conditions, the levies are collected in the form of two separate transactions. The under-sales rules may apply to transfers: what this means is that Buyer A directly recovers the profits from the partial sale, the reduced taxes and legal fees he supports for the new S-P contract. Prior to closing, a transaction of an entity between the original buyer and the new purchaser is referred to as a partial sale in industry jargon. A partial sale is where A contracts to sell a property to B, but before the conclusion of the purchase of A, B then contracts to sell the property to C.
